Haiku Pop

A while back, I asked my friends on Facebook to create haiku from popular music. The concept was reinterpreting lyrics into a new art form. Ford Forkum and Justin Bog came up with great poems.

it’s easy to die for you
without peace of mind

No one should go to
Scarborough Fair, unless you
Need thyme for beef stew.

“Scarborough Fair,” Simon & Garfunkel

by Ford Forkum

I look at you all
See the love there that’s sleeping
While the auto-tune kills

“While My Guitar Gently Weeps,” The Beatles
