That girl in the T-shirt, you see,
Is a PS-2 ack-cess-o-ree!
She's not even mine,
So I hope you divine,
That Largo's the pervert, not me!

Quick and Sly and Sharp
Piro on the rear foot parries well;
Bless language barriers.

<!haiku>
Okay, so the syllables don't quite add but...
</!haiku>

Damage control is
foremost; A quick word from Piro;
Hope shines once again!

Seems like a nice save for Piro, but he may well have just dug himself in deeper with this "little white lie". Here's one possible way it could go:

The four will go out for a b33r,
And then conversation will st33r
To the "virtual pet",
And then Piro must sweat,
For it's Erika's English he'll ph33r.

Though if they do go out together, it'll be at Erika's instigation, I think.

Remember that Tsubasa awarded custody of Ping to Piro in his parting note. Now that we know Erika can speak English, it may all come out in conversation, to Piro's embarassment.

nothing left to lose
Piro lays all on the line
with a crazy truth

Cool - I'm inspired to play off of that one:

no time left to lose
Largo lays out a warning:
respawned zombie troops!

BTW Cryshalo, your first haiku might add up to over 17 syllables, but it scans very nicely! And I see from the second line you've put some time in at a dojo yourself, neh?
