Nonsense Haiku

‘Haiku Tu’

~

‘Red Rooster come here.’

‘Please Red Rooster, please come here.’

‘I’m axing you nice.’

~

~

The polite farmer

axing the red bird to come:

‘It’s Haiku for you.’

~

~

‘No.’ said Red Rooster.

‘But, you are more than welcome

to go axe yourself.’

~

~

[End of ‘Haiku Tu’ / no more, nada, it’s all through. / No more farmer, too.]

~

~

‘Haiku Flu’

~

A long time ago

in a land of plenty snow

people did not go

~

outside with one shoe.

No, they went outside with two.

Otherwise, they Flu.

~

[End of ‘Haiku Flu’ / No more, nada, we’re all through. / Everyone turns blue.]

~

~

‘Haiku Poo’

~

High Diddle Diddle,

little doggie went piddle,

then gave a riddle

~

To his Master Boy,

‘If you let me chew your toy,

I’ll then call you Roi.’

~

‘Now, what is my name,

if our dear father’s the same,

but I have no reign?’

~

There came a paws thence

as Master Boy’s nose did wince.

‘Well, your are no Prince!’

`

[End of ‘Haiku Poo’ / No more, nada, we’re all through. / Thank god it’s not poo!]

~

  1. Ha ha ha….very funny, and exploding all over – I don’t care what you call these, they’re really fun, creative and enjoyable. No, they’re not the proper thing (haiku/senryu) — but you knew that. The asides are as good as the main bodies of the poems! Well done, sir!
