" Ohashi at Atake in Summer Shower " by Utagawa Hiroshige One drop I happened to notice in the torrent ever cascading.

Chin aloft; standing on the shoulders of giants - pissing on their heads!
My heart skips a beat as a gale-force wind issues; "Alhamdulillah!"
I ask a lost man his address. Arrogantly, he shows me a globe. "I'll reinvent the wheel!" shouts that nearly-dead man. He shows me a cube.
Prayer for divine wind 'gainst a chorus of crickets destroyed their own homes!
I just killed a man. I've eaten my fill - kids starve. God is so unjust! *Please note: this is a senryuu, not a haiku.
