Football (Haiku)

“Blue; forty-two. Brawl!”
Shuffle; Sprawl. “Throw him the ball!”
Who doesn’t love Fall?

Wills Osborn

Background Story

A few months ago I challenged myself to write a Haiku Poem. “”Haiku” is a traditional form of Japanese poetry. Haiku poems consist of 3 lines. The first and last lines of a Haiku have 5 syllables and the middle line has 7 syllables.”[1] Apparently, Haiku poems do not have to rhyme but I decided cast off the shackles of tradition and make mine rhyme.

I remembered the song , “Boys of Fall” by Kenny Chesney and decided to write my Haiku about football. The first day of the 2019/2020 NFL
season is coming up soon, so I’m sharing my poem now!

I hope you enjoy!
