National Poetry Month 6/30: TOMBSTONE in 5-7-5

Celebrate National Poetry Month by adding your own haiku on today’s topic (Tombstone) in the comments!


This movie’s last line
Is one of my favorites:
“Tom Mix wept.” (Me too.)

    I have not seen this movie.
    Blame it on homeschool.

  2. Liz Says:

    I know you loved this!
    I’m pretty sure I saw it,
    But don’t remember!! 😦

  3. megwood Says:

    Oh good, now I know
    What I should get Liz and Mel
    For Christmas this year.

    Tombstone haiku day
    Meg’s not wearing a bustle
    That is really lewd

  5. Trip Says:

    Calling down thunder
    Leads to its deadly receipt
    Hell’s coming with him

    Chopin out of tune —
    Can’t you play Camp Town Races?
    Steve Stinking Foster!!

  7. Liz Says:

    I beg your pardon?
    Stephen Foster was a great!
    (“Races” excluded!)

    :delurks: Hope I’m not too late for this. 🙂

    He waited for Earp
    “I’m your huckleberry,” drawled
    His death from the shade

    Best of Facebook contributions:

    Me (in response to a friend posting that any good Tombstone haiku has to include the phrase “I’m your Huckleberry” — this was my nickname in college, see?):
    It’s really a dare
    When Doc Holliday says he’s
    Your huckleberry.

    doc, mustached martyr,
    black coat a-swirl, dust-coated,
    “i’m your huckleberry.”

    Behold the pale horse
    Johnny Ringo is badass
    Until Doc shoots him….

    Wyatt Earp yells in fury
    No more red sashes.

    “i am,” said doc, black
    coated and tubercular,
    “your huckleberry.”…
