Seen at the uni bookshop today

David M. Bader's Haiku U, in which great works of literature are pilloried mercilessly in haiku form. I'm so going to buy it as soon as I have the money.

A couple of my favourites:

Louisa May Alcott, Little Women

Snow-drops hang like tears.
Shy, sweet, saintly Beth has died.
One down, three to go


Hrothgar's hall, haunted
Dauntless Danes die, Grendel-gored.
Why not hrelocate?
