    Well...it IS the UNHOLY haiku challenge so I'm guessing that Japanese poets would frown a lot at these. Plus, I know no Japanese.

    We occasionally get an evocative word-picture out of one or two of these, though.

    But, yes, just fun.

    Though I apparently pronounce 'insignificance' differently. Anyhoo...

    My first wife was Japanese, I can say "What's the matter then? Does your nappy need changing?" in Japanese.

    Clark, we are indeed ten thousand miles from anything resembling classical haiku, or even senryu, but remember the time Upstairs when God and Jesus were playing a round of golf on the two- thousand yard first hole? God putted the ball - putted I say, twenty yards, and a rabbit popped out of a hole, grabbed the ball and hared (!) down the fairway and an eagle dropped down, grabbed the rabbit, flew further, got struck by lightning and dropped the rabbit which dropped the ball which fell straight into the hole.
    ”Dad,” said Jesus, “it’s only a game.”

    Acupuncture pins
    With tiny barbs, permanent,
    A very bad idea.

    a very bad idea
    is to question the use of
    acupuncture pins
