Creation Myth Haiku

After the First Night
The Sun kissed the Moon
"Darling, you were wonderful!"

After the Orgies

All the Maenads had
terrible hangovers and
unwanted babies.

The Season of Celebrity

With summer comes the
bluebottle; with pleasant fame
comes the Journalist.

North American Haiku

Hail, tribes of Outer
Alcoholia - the Rednose
and Goutfoot Indians!

                         Gavin Ewart 1916 - 1995

Gavin Ewart once wrote that "Good light verse is better than bad heavy verse / any day of the week."
(with apologies to Leatherdykeuk @ When the Dogs Bite)
