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.

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
