haiku capers Poem by Raj Arumugam


1 forced into haiku


haikus and haiku-ers so ubiquitous
so I go with Ninja Turtle valor:
HAAAAAAAAAAAI-KUUUUU!



2 you haiku, baby?


you haiku, baby? Yeah, you haiku?
NO, NO – ME NAME NO HAIKU…
no, no, baby - I mean you haiku, baby?



3 Poet Haiku


dear Poet Haiku
if me see another copycat haiku
me surely go cuckoo



4 haiku about Japan


there’s all that about Japan
and all I learned
was sushi and haiku



5 haiku thief


Thomas Bruce stole
the Parthenon Marbles
and I stole the haiku



6 stale haikus



when I have
nothing original or fresh
I write haikus



7 the best haikus


the best haikus
the most natural and original
are likely to be in Japanese



8 lifeless haikus


Honorable Poet Haiku:
your haikus are so sad and lifeless
we suggest you try hara-kiri



9 haikus in English


haikus now in English
are like poetry
in bad translation



10 haiku as poetry


it’s easier to write a haiku
in English
than to make a poem



11 haiku held at ransom


bandits on highway English
have hijacked
the haiku



12 persuaded into haiku


all right,
I’ll give it a go:
I’ll hang myself with a haiku



13 lazy thinkers



lazy thinkers
get away with short cuts:
they ascribe everything to God




_____________

Honor able Sir and Lovely Ms
so you haiku, baby?
or you hara-kiri?

    I always thought i hate haiku, but reading yours have changed my mind. They are vibrant and entertaining and so funny, especially the way you presented them (i wonder if you are aware that they are number 4 on the poem list under haiku) ..........Good job Raj. (Report) Reply
