The Haiku is a ancient Japanese form of poetry which takes the syllabic form 5-7-5. The Football is an ole English pastime which takes the formation 4-4-2, or 4-5-1, or sometimes 3-1-4-0.3-0.7-1 (Brendan). Coalesced they form footballing Haikus, examples of which can be found right here. Should you read them and think “these are shit, I could do much better” then feel free to send in a set of your own.
