10 Haikus And Some Wisdom Poem by Herbert Nehrlich

10 Haikus And Some Wisdom

Rating: 2.2


Hand in hand
hand in it
it in hand
it in it.
Tongue in cheek
tongue in it
it on tongue
it in it.
***********
Haiku

Walk along with me
thinking of your underwear
is it boxershorts?

It is alkaline
care needs to be taken though
that jeans are noble.

It is a wonder
that no one likes the mothers
and does God know this?

Once a world power
they had illusions only
they do mean nothing.

On Hitler's birthday
they chanted filthy slogans
the Pope a Nazi.

His name was Clinton
he placed his crooked member
where no one ought to.

A friend named Yeltsin
he likes his vodka bottle
and dances Polka.

I am a racist
I like to step and stomp on
the fly-by pedal.

A dog named Adolf
he was the undertaker
for many roaches.

A cat named Lucy
she was so pseudo-pregnant
we named her Mamma.

Thank you Pradeep. That beautiful and talented angel from Western Australia got me interested in Haiku. I do think it is childishly easy to create them. But, as with limericks, some people are having a hard time. H

Sir Ali, it is an offence to not capitalise the word Hun. The big battle was in 451. Attila was a relative. Thank you for your support H
