A Salute To Immortal Prose In Haiku and Limerick

A Salute To Immortal Prose
In Haiku and Limerick

Cemetery is the place
Save haiku with chisel and mace
No editor chortle
Will spoil your immortal
Words once your headstone’s in place

Muse for men of words:
(In driving drunk and killing)
Man’s consistency

From Poems of the New Old West, Jack Purcell, copyright 2002
