The Box (For the “Fearless 44”)


“They led the elite SAF commandos to The Box.”—from a News Item

No need to think
out of the box.
I am the box
and I will tell you
what happened.

Upper wall:
Abdulbasit Usman
and Abu Marwan.

Left wall:
FBI reward money.
Right wall:
Government bureaucrats.

Lower wall:
MILF-BIFF with Berret rifles.

No need to think
out of the box.
I am the box.
Look through the glass:
44 bullet-riddled arrest warrants
and a dead Peace Accord.

Haiku Scenes

1. We went out to serenade
a house in the hills.
But they sang to us instead.

2. I saw three pretty faces
at a bus window.
It turns out they were pregnant.

3. Had my New Year’s Eve picture
holding some rockets
matches and Markang Pato.

4. I’m your professor, lady.
I sure am no saint.
Keep your legs crossed in my class.
