If you love short 17-syllable poems about nature and the sublime this book is not for you. But, if you enjoy dark humor and have an affinity for pirates, you need this book. This collection of over 400 poems delves into every aspect of what it means to be a pirate.
Author Jason McBride prides himself on being able to write haiku on just about any topic. In this first book of the Twisted Haiku Series, he takes the ancient Japanese poetry form and throws out the rulebook. Each haiku still has the familiar 5-7-5 syllable pattern, but these poems are anything but traditional.
