Haiku is to poetry as espresso is to coffee.

I promise not to do it again.

long long

In case you were looking for haiku:

summer drive
the long long days
of childhood

your business

"none of your business"
the president forgets
who he's working for

Asked what he and Putin were talking about at the G20 summit, President Donald "Pussy grabbing" Trump tells a journalist "None of your business." I'm not on speaking terms with D"pg"T, but he works for me,  as for all the American people.  That makes it my (our) business, and we rely on the news media to convey it to us. Just another instance of T. failing to do the job he was hired to do. Let's fire the bozo. Impeachment, anyone?


Anglican bishop
convicted of sex abuse
dies at 87

Yes, I know this deviates from haiku/senryu practice in some respects, but I think it fits within a broad definition of senryu.

And, of course, it just happened to be Anglican this time

bless me Father
for I have sinned
says the child

first confession
a nun hurries children
past the garden
