Poem-A-Day November 6

prompt: happy now

On Watching Australia Play South Africa At The MCG on TV

It's difficult for them
to make runs. I shouldn't
feel happy but
the Outs by stumps
and athletic catches
make me happy! now!

The night sky shimmies
with a chaotic community
of bugs, invisible by day.
The bowlers appear
to dance a wild jig.
Fast! Nasty! Chin music!

The jargon slips from
commentators' lips.
And when twenty overs
are done, and our boys
win easy, I'm happy! now!
It only takes one victory.
