Haiku Friday - ripped from the headlines

Haiku Friday


Catherine Becker
cut off her husband's penis
and threw it away

Actually, she
ran it through the Disposal
in the kitchen sink.

It happens a lot
What they call 'Spousal Abuse'.
I say, "Oh, really?"

I know she loves me,
We never hit each other.
But I hide the knives.


The Haiku above is ripped from the headlines - actually (four syllable word), it was this little thing I saw on the web. So maybe there weren't any headlines. And maybe the story was more about 'Spousal Abuse' by women than actually about her misdeeds. But she DID do it. And if he dies (which, apparently, is still possible), she'll be charged with murder.

I'm going to wait to subscribe to the Linky Tools until we get more participation.

Leave a link to your Haiku in comments.

LMAO, this is Awesome!! Well not for the male but for the reader;-) Mine doubles for the 100 Word Challenge so that's the reason for te loansome ending line, which is also the title:-). http://upinthecosmos.blogspot.com/2011/07/everything-becomes-one.html

I only saw a small snippet of this story being mentioned... coming from where I am on this side of the spousal/partner abuse debate, I gotta wonder why she felt the need to stoop to this kind of thing?

Oh my... the garbage disposal? I wonder what her rationale for all this was.

My haiku is here: Don't touch

He could have used a sign...

I heard that story the other day. I haven't played along in a while, but this week I have one here

Grandmother said...

Whatever happened to "Let's talk about it."?

I don't think you need to, or do you?

Lisa said...

I think the title should be changed to "ew" as that is what I said several times while reading this. LOL!!!

Holly said...

Ew. The idea makes my skin crawl.

Hmmm, makes me think of Lorena Bobbit, who didn't think of the garbage disposal, apparently. John Bobbit was "reunited" with his penis, and went on to continue his career as an all-around creep.
