Back in around 1991, my hubster (then boyfriend) and I entered some haiku contest at McGill University. I can't remember the rules but it had something to do with fruits and veg. So I wrote two haikus and we submitted them, lying by claiming that Gordon had written one (my soul is forever stained with that sin.)
Of course, "Gordon's" haiku WON the contest and was even on the local evening news! His prize was a bag of rice presented to him by a McGill mascot, a rather crazed martlet.
I think it's time for a wider audience to enjoy our, I mean, MY haikus. So I present to you some of my best haiku work:
White bean curd does the rumba!
Soy snowflakes fall fast
The mighty kumquat
Fruit freedom fighter flees fridge
I step on it. OOPS!
Thank you. Thank you very much!
These classic haikus are copyrighted by me for all eternity, so don't be stealing them and entering them in a contest so that you can win a bag of rice!
