More Haiku From The Confucius Collection

Man who ran in front
of car got really tired.
And they were Dunlops.

Man who ran in rear
of car was so exhausted
he went to heaven.

Hand in pocket makes
man feel cocky all day long,
it also warms him.

Man who scratches ass
is well advised to not chew
fingernails too soon.

War does not show us
who may be right in this world
but who will be left.

Man who eats many
prunes will soon get run for money
with noisy exit.

He lives in glasshouse
and always changes clothes in
the basement laundry.

Confucius! Such an inspiration!
Yes, all very funny and cleverly done.
War does not show us who may be right in this world but who will be left this is really good senryu (japanese humour haiku)
