Mixed Genre Poems

An Irish Zen koan by Graham Priest:

What is the sound of one pint of Guinness?

A limerick in the form of a haiku, by Jason Grossman:

There was an old man
Who came in Spring to Japan
That silly old man

A haiku in the form of a limerick, by Adrian Henri:

Heptonstall Memory

In the town of the grey granite tower
With the smell of the balsam in flower
On that final June day
When we both went away
You turned as the clock struck the hour.

Another haiku, by Alison Moore:

no no no no no
no no no no, no no no
no no no no no

Or the Australian version:

Yeah no, nah, no, no.
Yeah well okay all right then,
oh, not really. Yeah, no.
