Haiku

I dislike haiku
it leaves me quite unfulfilled
unlike other things.

I’m part Japanese
But I have to tell you this:
Haiku is dullsville.

When I was seven
I visited relatives
in Japan (by plane.)

haiku 3

The truth of it is
I prefer rhyming poems
with a clear message.

5 to 7 to 5
talk about a freakin’ DRAG
(…in Hokkaido mists)

haiku leaves

Leaves upon water
after harvest festival
make me want to sleep

 

Children flying kites:
Kyoto monastery yard;
Basho-San, I’m bored

 

Rain upon bamboo
circles upon the carp pool…
Hey—what’s on TV ?

Fishy Haiku

Nippon carp pool scene
media feeding frenzy
fake news: foul sushi

Great orange savior
magnanimous provider
feeds outside the box.

Eastern harmony
while fake news carps at Donald . . .
Media: go to hell.

Let Eastern dawn illuminate harmonious meeting of brilliant minds. Dear Leader, Orange Savior of Mankind, makes great deals yet also is kind to gentle fish.  From his all-providing hand the sacred Koi enjoy a portion of benificence. Great leader and fellow-citizen Trump strides boldly into enemies’ flashbulbs, like vanguard of populist nationalism confronting weak running dogs and reactionary landlords of globalist tyranny. Fish who refuse his generosity must hide in cold deep, risking hunger and loneliness, condemned by the People’s glorious movement toward revolutionary rebirth.

Traitors and false journalists: you are FISH-FOOD.

ALL HAIL DEAR LEADER AND FORWARD-THINKING PEOPLE’S HERO DONALD J. TRUMP

Take a Haiku
