Redneck Haiku

Nowadays, any bookstore will contain interesting varieties of English- language haiku, such as Haikusine, a book of culinary haiku, or my personal favourite, Redneck Haiku, advertised as “What Happens When Bubba Meets Japanese Verse” and containing memorable compositions such as the following on a seasonal theme:

Bobby’s spring break trip
Cost him five hundred dollars
And a clinic visit.

~Susan J. Napier in “From Impressionism To Anime – Japan as Fantasy and Fan Cult in the Mind of the West”
