Gaijin or Haijin

Wayland Bunch a gaijin
With aspirations of being haijin
Worked tediously for some time
Writing  poems that don’t even rhyme

    I love writing haiku so this gave me a laugh! It is a harder form to master than people think, lol... This is very witty!

    and yes while gaijin means outsider, it was the term they gave normally to white americans. Don't you remember the book lol?

    Hello Wayland, I'm wondering what poem you are talking about, during my soup-mail. ooo..and about the clerihew... ha ha ..Love it! The ending gave me a super out loud laugh. LOL ;-) I'm going with "Gaijin". cause you don't scribble dribble like a cripple. well, your not an outsider. So I supposed, your in between. always~ PD
