Not an Ornithologist Haiku

This is different,

that is to say: much the same

as all the others.


Let me expand thus:

my haiku tend to be short

and always ‘en point’.


Throwaway, even;

much to nobody’s surprise,

it’s what I am – no?


So, where one would do,

I have to write several,

which are trite, or worse.


The form is okay,

but the Haiku should be apt –

mine are apt to fade.
