Haiku Variety - Poem by Herbert Nehrlich

King Tut was not killed
by assassins from behind.
May have been poisoned.

Atilla the Hun
would butter his sugar bun
he did own no gun.

Charlemagne was crowned,
not in Aix-En-Chapelle, no
eighthundred in Rome.

Young Siegfried missed it,
one spot had no dragonblood.
They aimed and found it.

Who built the first car?
'Twas the gremlins in Stuttgart.
The three-pointed star.

If you take statins
you kill your ubiquinone,
Co-enzyme Q-10.

A rabbit has four
but a bird only two legs.
But bunnies lay eggs.

Who was the first man
to observe a cow's udder,
and then stole her milk.

Then came the chicken,
you eat the fragile thingies
that fall from bottom.

And Michael Jackson,
he may be child molester.
Him sleep alone now.
