Haiku on 'Reserve' and 'Send'


Troops held in reserve
Never saw frontline action
The lucky bastards

Bidding at auction
Reserve price beyond our means
Keep renting I guess

Small city reserve
Some struggling grass, two sad trees
Desert oasis


Circus audience
Becoming very restless
Please send in the clowns

Send reinforcements
We are going to advance
Three and fourpence? Dance?
(In memory of 'Chinese Whispers')

Sending out signals
That go largely unheeded
Have another drink

A really hip chick
Darling you really send me
Lived through Seventies
