Haikus and Limericks

Salvation Army
Waiting in a line
Feeling famished and poor
Least’ this meal’s worth a dime

-Lan Sinha

 

There was a young man from Stamboul
Who soliloquized thus to his tool:
“You took all my wealth
And you ruined my health,
And now you won’t pee, you old fool.”

-Taken From Kurt Vonnegut’s ‘Slaughterhouse five’

Haiku of Kurt Vonnegut

the meaning of life
we’re on earth to fart around
one day at a timekindness to others
if this isn’t nice what is
how to get alongsaints are all around
people acting decently
in a world gone mad

music makes you free
the life you know is ending
practice once a night

some of our people
are richer than whole countries
they run everything

no shoes at airport
terrorists hate smell of feet
now we can feel safe

addicted to oil
george bush is a plagiarist
i ought to sue him

jesus used to be
so merciful and loving
now he’s just a brand
