Lois's High-Impact Haiku
Oh, nice try, Lois! But you were so distracted by the attempt on your life, you forgot the seven-syllable caption would have to go in the MIDDLE of your other two lines. D'oh!
Still, impressive use of stuttering to add the extra syllable in the last line; no wonder you got a Pulitzer.
"A sniper's bullet ...
[and during a shopping trip]
b- barely missed me!"
If ya ask me, I think she over-reacted. No doubt it was simply the DCU's League of Fashion Assassins aiming for her ridiculous tamarind Coco Chanel pillbox hat, purely out of a sense of decency and devotion to a well-dressed society.
Poet-readers; if you were Lois (or an onlooker, or the sniper!), what haiku would YOU have composed upon this occasion?
