“July 2016 Haiku,” by Eric Robert Nolan

July 2016 Haiku

I’ll run mad if I
hear another word about
fucking Pokemon.

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.

Catch NOTHING.

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.
