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?

Sir G 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.

No.
