Tonight I feel sad
Switzerland didn't play bad
But they lost the game

Re: Got a haiku on your Swiss experience? Post it here!

I don't know if triple Haikus are allowed, but this one was fun to write.


Train trip in sunshine
see men with helmets, working
mending road again

Bike-ride in sunshine
helmetted men, departed
much grit on road AAAGGGHHH

new road good for car
old road was better for bike
what is solution?

Vacation begins
day before end of Euro;
Croatia, we come.

Between towns we go;
if we miss the final match,
one husband will die.
