Haiku for Eagles

I heard there was something called “The Super Bowl” on last night. Now, I don’t get into professional sports, because they have money and I just can’t relate to that. BUT I do like the idea of eagles winning. So I wrote these haiku.

Moons are super bowls
Of fish they cannot reach
Beyond the horizon.

Saffron sunsets set
The mood for aerial displays,
Nocturnal courtship.

Revelation

i consumed the jabs

at my demeanor, because

i knew no other way

~

now others risk

self-worth to wash their hands

or take a piss?

~

it ends, humiliation in all forms,

or hell begins.
