• 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.
