Arms flung in the air
Masked men wielding metal death
Shit! It’s a stickup.

Afterscript: I had written this Haiku a while back but could not find the appropriate image to go with it so I held off publishing it. But then today I stumbled upon this amazing picture of art and about it there was something supremely amusing about Lego™ Imperial Stormtroopers holding up the amiable ‘Wall –E.’ The image instantly zinged with the feelings I was trying to convey with my poem. I knew my search had ended.

I hope you enjoyed it! Please do let me know by leaving your comments in the comment box below.
