Waste Land Haiku

April is cruel.
Stetson's the Fool. I'm coping.
Damyata shantihng.


  1. The reference 'coping' is, of course, to Wendy Cope, who famously re-cast T.S. Eliot's 'The Waste Land' in limerick form.

    I met Wendy Cope when she was a judge of the UK Poetry Society & BBC's poetry competition - so wonderful in person!

  2. Another brilliant Haiku!

  3. Oh my -- very surprising and easy to memorize as well, for when I quote my favorite poet - YOU!
