Haikus From The Confucius Series -3 - Poem by Herbert Nehrlich

It had been steamy.
His mother asked him later
Do you chew floss, my boy?

The car left skid marks.
Inside his boxer shorts were
some brownish stress marks.

Endoscopy is
when two tubes meet from each end
come out at one end.

The surgeon closed then
but left two safety pins to
keep the bad bugs out.

He asked her shyly
whether she did or did not.
She said be patient.

The Queen now pondered,
which one of her sweet corgies
looked like Camilla.

It was George Doub'ya
who took the photos of him.
Saddam in nickers.

That Russell Crowe is
a troublemaking wanker,
not schizophrenic.

Sit on my lap dear
we'll talk about the first thing
that lifts your fanny.
