Short Haiku - Poem by Herbert Nehrlich

Yet the big bad wolf
was a gentleman deep down.
He shared his victims.

And the little lamb
was lost deep in the forest
That's where they shared him.

And God had watched them.
Yet he showed no compassion.
It was Mary's lamb.

    You have established your very own form of Haiku Herbert. It works well and I appreciate how difficult it is too.
