Haikuesday with Green Arrow

Well, the Green Arrow Year One and Black Canary mini-series keep pushing me toward the belief that Ollie Queen just may be a hero after all, and a workable one.

After all, could anyone but a hero speak in such casual heroic haiku at such a critical moment, guiding a fellow hero on the proper path?


But if you kill him,
he can't suffer anymore.
Is that what you want?

Nice one, Ollie!

What is YOUR haiku celebrating Ollie Queen new heroic evolution?

bastard factory

I see, Steven, that you are not yet fully convinced.

In my practiced hands
Anything long and narrow
Can be a weapon

#1

His arrows be darned!
Queen's greatest trick was getting
Dinah to say "Yes!"

#2

It doesn't matter
What anyone says. It's still
All about the beard.

This day I thought I'd
never see; Ollie praised on
the Absorbascon.

The fact remains that
Bow and arrow is still not
A super-power

Gyuss Baaltar said...

The punching glove arrow,
Oh Why oh Why ever did I,
ever come up with that?

Ariel said...

If I were Dinah
I'd stay with him too:
Ollie's a size 12 shoe!

Ariel said...

Crap, one syllable too many.

Chance said...

"Ollie's shoe size 12!"

(verification code: gqivva. really.)

Steven said...

I'm just saying, if a man can put a glove on his arrow...

STDs don't prevent themselves...

Scip converted.
Today, the Absorbascon.
Tomorrow, the World!

He told the Question:
The mask is just there to keep
The beard company.

BIG MIKE said...

A hero at last?
I say Green Arrow was a
hero all along.

Jason said...

O, sweet tight green pants!
Muscles flashing, bow springing.
Wrongdoers: tremble.

That must have been Ollie's first step toward becoming a liberal. Typical tough guy's justification for opposing the death penalty.
