Trump Haiku


Well-Known Member
Can I ask you this
What do you really expect from us
How do you write haiku

Simple poem, three lines.

Five syllables, seven syllables, five syllables (not totally strict)..,

Examples from the Master, Basho:

An old silent pond...
A frog jumps into the pond,
splash! Silence again.

Ah, tranquility!
Penetrating the very rock,
A cicada’s voice.

In the twilight rain
these brilliant-hued hibiscus -
A lovely sunset.

It’s a Japanese style of poetry, often concerned with the juxtaposition of the natural world with personal feelings, sometimes containing double-meanings hidden within the structure of the written Japanese characters.

So, yah, let’s do it in English, but about Trump.

What is up with her husband
Will she find new work?

I wrote this Haiku
As I sit on the toilet
Dropping a big duce

There once was a lib named Bill
Who's wife Hillary was shrill.
He said with a cluck
If ol'Hill won't suck
Then Monica always will.
