Twoku: Friday the thirteenth / comes on Thursday this month, so / today it is here.
OK, before you think the Haikook has gone of his rocker, dived into dementia, or otherwise gone around the bend with this silly haiku, you should know that it’s in honor of and derived from a favorite, satirical cartoon – an old comic strip actually – called “Pogo” written and drawn by Walt Kelly (deceased). If you don’t know about Pogo Possum, his friends and adventures in Okefenokee Swamp, you should search for it online, and get ready to laugh! Anyway, this haiku and twoku are inspired (stolen?) from an ongoing thread in the comic strip, where one character often remarks on which day of the week Friday the Thirteenth comes on this month…
Enjoy THURSDAY the Thirteenth in the meantime… 🙂
