Four Quarters

By Tom Petsinis, Illustrated by Jim Pavlidis

By a leading poet and novelist, poems mirroring the triumphs, despondencies, agony and joy of the great game of Australian Rules Football.


Lord, if we should be down by a point 
And dying with your crimson sun,  
Have mercy, raise the faithful from defeat,  
Show us the redemptive cup. Supporter's Prayer
