haiku

david m. bader a  scos o cărticică (pătrată) cu haiku-uri, from aristotle to zola, 100 great books in 17 syllables. unele chiar i-au ieșit bine:

The Canterbury Tales
Pilgrimmes on spryng braecke –
roadde trippe! Whoe farrtted? Yiuw didde.
Noe, naught me. Yaes, yiuw.

St. Augustine – The Confessions
This is just to say
I screwed around. Forgive me.
I enjoyed it so.

Samuel Richardson – Clarissa…
To Miss Howe: Send help!
I’ve been raped in Volume Six
with three more to go.

Robinson Crusoe
Alone for twelve years,
then a footprint in the sand.
Thank God! A servant!

Herodotus – The Histories
Go tell the Spartans –
the Persian hordes are fierce and
wear funny slippers.

Evelyn Waugh – Brideshead Revisited
Gay Anglo-Catholics –
what else to expect from a
man named Evelyn?

Balzac – Old Goriot
His two spoiled daughters –
they don’t write, they don’t visit.
This is gratitude?

Marquez – One Hundred Years of Solitude
Plagues, incest, madness,
human pig-children. Dios!
Where does the time go?

Thomas Hardy – The Mayor of Casterbridge
Undone by his past –
he once sold his wife and child.
Nobody’s perfect.

Joyce – Finnegans Wake
Riverrun on and
by Jaisus s’dense! Bien alors,
scribbledehobble.

    Vrem parodia seriosa care incepe de la Baltagul in sus si toate celelalte directii! The crowd, ma rog, ieu, has speaketh!
