Is That all You People Think About?

a collection of modern haikus


'A fine, if sometimes rude, collection of haikus inspired by modern life' Daily Telegraph

‘I’m in here!’ yelled Mum.

The word ‘Haiku’ invokes images of misty mountains, running streams and falling leaves. But where are the haiku that reflect the modern world we live in? The real world of overflowing baths, train delays and Pierce Brosnan?

In this collection, you will find a haiku for every moment of modern life, all rendered in no more or less than 17 syllables.
