one haiku that’s true, one that’s one syllable more than true and a tanka first, too.

i have been reading
poems in the asian genre
and i have noticed
that haikus are irregular
and that goes for tankas, too.

the above tanka
has the correct syllables,
as does this haiku, too.

that last syllable —
“too” is one too many words
for it to be true.
