A resolution
Piro sees what to do now
"My lord! Kanon Cards!"


A resolution
efforts rewarded at last
The Bastard returns

The Bastard

Fanboy Temptation
preverse lust wrapped in foil
Hey look! Seraphim!

Normally I just try to capture the whole moment in a single haiku, as I like the challenge. But this provided too many perspectives, and a chance to use the third stanza as a contrary point for all three. This may very well be my favorite strip to date. Piro falls like a knockoff garage kit..."All too Easy."

And now tempation
has arrived, bearing Kanon
trading cards and doom

human nature will
always make bad assumtions
Get home soon, piro

Piro bonks the desk
Seraphim meets an old foe
Now the fur will fly!

Oh Piro, please don't
fall for the ill-advisement
of your temptation.

Piro finds new cards
Now observe as his savings
Go way of dodo.

(For the Sealab 2021 fans:)
Seriphan looks mad
And so pulls out her hammer.

(First attempts at Haiku's in a while, gosh, forgot how hard it was at times. )

fiddling with settings
assaulted by vertical
lines: damn this printer


Gaaah... I'm trying to find some printer setting that will make MT print properly. First my scanner starts skipping lines, now this - hardware sucks.

With best intentions,
Seraphim gives poor advice.
To thyself be true.

So easily swayed
by objects of heart's desire.
I can so relate.

A new nemesis.
Ev'ry character needs one--
even a conscience.

Piro has a choice:
Fantasy, Reality.
Face life or escape.

"Oh Piro, please don't
fall for the ill-advisement
of your temptation."

This is my favorite of the bunch.

Why...why thank you.

Let's see. Name of bunbun...maybe someone I know from the Sluggy Boards...

Posted by: bunbun Mar 2 2002, 02:38 AM
I don't have a Sluggy board account, but my name is based on my favorite Sluggy Freelance character.

Miho and Bun-Bun: mysterious, powerful, and intimidating. I'm nothing like that in real life, really! Really!
