haiku

sexual struggle
betwixt the beasts can be rough
we sometimes use court

  1. Interesting, clever, timely. But I am not so sure that the events in the court this week have anything to do with sexual struggle between beasts, not like Rams colliding in competition for a mate, but has more to do with the right of people to exist in their sphere without being discriminated against, so the metaphor does not carry all the way through. But on a more personal level, like in a divorce court or family court, this haiku is spot on. well done!

    • hmm. thanks for the feedback.

      “but has more to do with the right of people to exist in their sphere without being discriminated against,”

      a challenge in haiku is to compare/contrast “nature” with the personal or human. In this case I was considering one approach in nature to gender/reproductive issues as opposed to one approach to the same in homo sapiens.

      cheers.
