A pessimist wakes on the day after the longest day…
the longest day done
the evenings drawing in
can winter be far?
Ok, well, that brings to an end Haiku Week at stopdraggingthepanda. I didn’t intend to have a haiku week but I had things to say about….the Daily Prompt, the World Cup, the continuing abomination that is the Trump presidency, and of course the longest day. On top of that, Summer has arrived in Vancouver and the World Cup is on in Russia and there’s so much soccer to watch and so much soccer to discuss over pints of dry hopped pale ale with citrus grace notes and a hint of camel breath that all I can manage is seventeen syllables on any subject. Speaking of the world cup, this haiku from early in the week still applies….
The Story So Far
the agony of Neymar
Yes…the preening prince of hair gel, Ronaldo, still rules while Neymar rolls around on the ground (see below) and Messi mopes.
