How you choke me!
But IAMB not distressed
By an ANAPEST.
A pun-filled haiku devised to make you cringe;)
Mourning Dove, cooer
of mournful low and high coos–
subjects of haiku
(or “Dennis, Lana, and Anna”) by Paul Burgess
“Before he turned his life around,
DenniS always cursed and SinneD,
And, until LanA’s turnaround,
She was an AnaL bag of wind.”
…But, AnnA found the story foul
And said its moral was deranged.
It seemed a message quite unfair,
Implying she had never changed.
“The Inquisition and the Lions”–by Paul Burgess
The lions shall be crucified,
For they will not renounce their pride!
Don’t trust a snoring man who’s closed his eyes
Because it’s said of him, “Asleep he lies.”
