July 2016 Haiku
I’ll run mad if I
hear another word about

Japan. A national portrait in dichotomy.
How did the culture that gave us Bushido, Haiku and Ota Dokan ALSO give us Pokemon, hentai and those … indescribable game shows?
And nobody go there with the Thomas Jefferson/Donald Trump analogy, because it’s too easy.
I just got finished asking my friends, “Wtf is with the Pokemon crap?” They responded with an explanation about today’s indecipherable craze, but I lost interest halfway through it.
I find Pokemon so irritating that I refuse even to post an image of it in this blog post. (For a little perspective, consider that I actually have posted pictures here of Donald Trump.)
There are adults participating in this … whatever it is.
From now on, I will no longer feel guilty about enjoying comic books or zombie movies at the age of 43.
