Triple Haiku - Poem by Herbert Nehrlich

A single dragon
can slay a lot of people,
with halitosis.

Proof of the pudding
is hypothetical if
trouts are in the milk.

With perfect recall
you never have to worry
about your future.

    You are sure enjoying these haiku huh? I don't think I've written any...........you do them very well and I like that you do them with more than just the one stanza. Sincerely, mary (Report) Reply

    Witty, fresh, and poetically succinct, Herbert. Trouts in milk indeed! Last line bit of a sticking point for me, though. Can't say I agree with it. But that's just me. I think what I like about your poem's, Herbert, are the topics - so unusual and thought-provoking. I look forward to the next one. With admiration, Gina. (Report) Reply
