Just thinking. What if poets wrote technical instruction manuals? Take your basic lawn mower foruhzample:
Operating instructions for your Haiku 575® Lawn Mowing Machine
How to assemble
And use with minimal pain
Your happy doodad
Honored grass cutter,
Open manual to learn
Open heart to know
Join Part A to B
Announce to Parts C and D
Their time is at hand
Never light match, please,
To peek in gasoline tank
Before writing Will
Grip cord by handle
Hard yank reaps sound of silence
Again, mighty pull
But again only bees buzz
Neighbors watch and smile
Adjust choke, jerk cord
Blue smoke and awful racket
Neighbors shut their doors
Or, maybe not.

Excellent, Pat. You’ll be hard pressed to go beyond this one!
Popeye, you ol’ sailor man (notice I didn’t say old but ol’–there’s a 6 year difference)thanks for your thoughts. Have you thought of trying fresh spinach rather than canned?
You are really on the CUTTING EDGE.I am here all week , tell your friends.
I’ve always wanted to be on the cutting edge of something. Until now it’s been mostly cheese.
I suppose you said everything that need to be said. You could be onto something! That’s much simpler to read that 75 pages of jargon!
Thanks, Miss Lou, for visiting the blog. Happy days.
