Oriental Droppings

Hard Candy by Russell Mackensen

Oriental Droppings

Haikus – poems of failure –
Bitesize tweets of mental fluff.
Exotic in regalia,
Just self-congratulating puff.
Strangely obsessed with the weather,
And crushingly serene –
Thinking they’re oh-so-clever
For counting to seventeen.
