Haiku Tuesday: Dueling Haikus of Death

You think you've seen this post before, but you haven't! I've discussed Vibe's horrible death recently, but there was something I didn't notice about it until it was pointed about to me by an observant commenter ("Jeff R.", in fact):

the Ivoid kills Vibe in flawless haiku.

"I have been ordered
to murder you. I am not
programmed for failure."


Creepy as that it is, its creepiness is badly compound by an even stranger fact:

Vibe replies, with his death gasps ... in haiku.

"No! Get 'em off me!
Get 'em off! I can't breathe, damn
it! I can't==oh, god.."


Brrr. Creepy.

What haiku can YOU compose either about this little death scene or to serve as substitute haikus for theirs? Even haikus unflatterable of Vibe will be accepted!

Although I can't imagine anyone wanting to write anything unflattering about Vibe....

It can't end like this.
No dignity, no honor!
I-I'm a hero!

I know this alley...
Started in one just like it.
It welcomes me home.

Killed by a robot.
This never happens to Supes.
Such a dumb mistake.

Don't you worry, Vibe:
Morrison brings you back to life!
Not a good life, though.

Scipio said...

Wow, you guys are getting REALLY good!

Is Morrison bringing Vibe back?@?@

Don't tease me like that...!

Ron said...

I thought he already had, but then I remembered that was Triumph. I am going to catch SUCH hell for that blunder, I'm sure.

You confuse "Triumph" with VIBE?


Harumph! Perhaps we'll alsot need to prime you on the difference between, say,Gangbuster and Batman?
