Painfully British Haikus
  • Painfully British Haikus

  • 'Will make everybody laugh' DOLLY ALDERTON ON THE HIGH LOW

    Enjoy this hilarious collection of over 200 haikus that sum up the complex, confusing and often compounding character of the British people.

    The Sellotape end
    Unlocatable it seems
    Christmas is cancelled

    How many gin tins
    Is decreed appropriate
    For this train journey?

    The sound of a splash
    My Hobnob falls to pieces
    My tea is sullied

    Every houseplant
    Suffers a slow painful death
    I am a monster

    You're at the seaside
    A seagull eyes your Magnum
    You won't win that fight
