    mohammed, open your mind.the rain is tears....why kneel refers to neal cassady, and also to why kneel to a useless god who does nothing to alleviate suffering that is, if there is a god (Report) Reply

    It's an absolute nonsense in the name of haiku. A haiku contains 17 syllables while it has only 7. The structure is not correct. I'm surprised at the wit of people how it got 31 votes and also occupied a place in top 500 poems. It should be removed at once. (Report) Reply
