Spam Haiku

Mange emigration!
Seduce repudiation!
spoonful. . . i n f i n i t e l y

Shawl formality! {external stole}

Lull shown, silence gaping: obsoleTE pedagogy

Er, wasn't that a piece from BLAST?

A haiku, to be a haiku, has to contain a ki-go, or a word indicating the season. (this rule is typically overlooked in the English psed-genre which appears to have no rules other than LENGTH -- and even that attended too none too carefully)

which word would you say it is in this case?

Gawain said...

for example

the moon is white
my nose is red

the ki-go, or season word, is moon, which is implicitely understood to be a symbol of autumn. thus, a cold autumn night

Clearly, the ki-go is 'spoonful', a classic symbol of spring.

I got cofused in there! I've never read such a complicated haiku...or was it?
