POP MUSIC HAIKU BUFFET

TOM JONES
big voice and tight pants,
nothing unusual there,
knickers in the air


JANIS JOPLIN
busted flat hippie
soul screaming voice, kozmic blues,
heart, guts, blew a fuse


JOHNNY CASH
Deep, dark voice, prisons,
man in black, highwayman too
and a boy named Sue


TINA TURNER
Annie Mae Bullock,
gyrating rock/soul goddess,
not a lot of dress


DEEP PURPLE
heard on a dark night,
there once was a strange woman,
alright, it's alright


PAUL SIMON
boy in a bubble,
rhyming, hearts, bones, Graceland, saints
and water trouble


LONNIE DONEGAN
my old man's a hit,
king of skiffle tops the chart
hitched on a dust cart


EVERLEY BROTHERS
sweet harmony team,
all we have to do is dream
before Suzie wakes


PRINCE
funny symbol guy,
the haiku formerly known
as purple geezer


FLEETWOOD MAC
blues roots to rock stars,
the albatross of success -
just rumours I guess
