Haikus, November 2018

A series of haikus I wrote as a writers' guild exercise:

“It’s Not Worth Diet Coke”
I once thought the theme
Of Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves
Told of Diet Coke.

“The Chicken Joke”
I’d no idea
The chicken crossed the road since
It sought suicide.

“Grandparental Nomenclature”
I used to think the
Names of my mom’s parents were
Nanny and Poppy.

“Cait Sith”
I had no clue the
Name of the mythical beast
Was pronounced “kett shee.”

“Grilled Cheese”
I once thought grilled cheese
Sandwiches were called “girled cheese.”
Food has no gender.

“Germany Jeremy”
In my youth I thought
Jeremy and Germany
Were one in the same.
