Corn costs a buccaneer

By Bryan

Green peas on flat spoon
Rolling lazily around
above the soup bowl

An eye-patched man comes
ill tidings he brings under
a flourescent sky

Guarding the deep bowl
I stand with scabbard to fight
Alas I'm run through

Corn costs a buccaneer? GROAN!!!

Nice action sequence - didn't realize it was possible to have a pirate fight scene so succinctly in haiku form!

Genuine Haiku-ity! It felt like a real Haiku, not just the right number of syllables - well done!

"Rolling lazily around" - the line actually sounds like what it is - brilliant.
