LJ Entry – “Movie Haiku”

Haiku is one of my most favorite poetry forms.  Its short, to the point, and can pack a lot of amusement or sentiment – kind of like me!

Anyway, here’s collection of some of my original based on television shows, movies, and tropes. Doggerel?  Absolutely. Funny?  You be the judge.

Creating haiku
Is easy to do as long
As you are drinking

Korean Drama:

Scary relatives
Seoul Tower in the background
Don’t meet by the Han!

Keep Releasing The Tapes (for movies that haven’t been released to DVD)

Robot Carnival
Keeping the videotape
Until they relent.

Spaceballs:

Go “Ludicruous Speed”
In order to get Lone Starr
Too fast! Gone to plaid.

Airplane!:

Zucker and Zucker
Love to put their mother in
Very funny roles.

TRON:

Black and white filming
Some MAGI Synthevision
Disney Magic Ink

Must Love Dogs:

It’s time to move on
Second chance with online date
OMG, it’s Dad!

Avatar: The Last Airbender (animated)

Children learning skills
So they can fight the Big Bad.
Kids deep kissing?? Squick!

Darker Than Black:

Is he Lee or Hei?
One thing you can be sure of
Badass either way.

Give up emotion
To gain powers of a god.
Or a cat who talks.

City in ruins
Even without Godzilla,
Tokyo dies again.
