Haiku 151 – Management Speak Haiku

corporate memo: the compositional qualities of poetical endeavors utilizing Oriental form, sub-set: Japanese
should heretofore be developed in such manner that corporate linguistical techniques are employed
thus expanding the potentiality of verbiage and minimizing the extraneous percentage of underdeveloped page usage.

Translation:

if a haiku were
written in management speak
it would be longer

~~

written for dVerse, where we are invited to use “management speak” or jargon to write poetry.

Haiku 146 – Suspicion

the homicide team
investigates red-stained shirt –
just strawberry juice

~~

the prompt, today at Carpe Diem is “Strawberries”. I’ve noticed a trend amongst many bloggers (including myself) of taking a light topic and giving it a dark twist. I thought, for a change, that I’d write something that seems to start dark, and give it a light twist instead. Hope you enjoyed!
