Haiku 77 - Poem by Herbert Nehrlich

And all she left him
was that pink old garter belt.
then went to Flagstaff.

Since they had snow there
she got to wear the longjohns
and raise her finger.

She soon forgot him
and his nightly trumpet farts
that's why she left it.

    Thanks, guys. No the 77 has a special meaning. Undisclosed at this time.

    we seem to be covering that word madness in our poetry today Herbert which is good, anything that creates laughter can only be good for the soul

    Warm regards allan
