The Ballad of Nicholas Richards

As requested, a 23-word post for Mr Nicholas Richards in the form a two-verse Haiku poem. Ask and you shall receive…

Man of letters sits,
Dreaming of Derby’s promotion,
Hoping not expecting.

Birmingham was bad,
Losing last night to Wolves worse,
George Thorne: salvation?

    Your blogs, interesting.
    But, time is of the essence!
    Short and sweet is neat.

    That’s our attempt at a haiku.

    I enjoy your blogs but they are longer than the others I read. As we just found out (above), it must be hard to say what you want in fewer words than you’d like. Looking forward to the next one.

      A strong effort 🙂 Yeah, I’m gradually moving towards choosing more and more specific topics so that I can say something substantial but have less ground I need to cover to say it. 2000 words is a bit much, 500-1000 is probably about right.
