Haiku for Penny

On a spring Haikuesday, what could be more calm or peaceful than an evening's stroll with ones dog in a quiet statuary garden where--


"What will I call my terrifying human-faced lamb/mummy/dog hybrid?  I have it; Penny."

HOLY MOTHER OF ANUBIS, WHAT THE HELL IS THAT THING?!?!?

Hawkgirl has always been an odd sort, but her--well, I'll just call it a "pet", and leave it at that--really takes the prize.  Dr. Moreau himself wouldn't have spared it.

Sired by Anubis violating the Paschal Lamb and birthed deep within a pyramid in Egypt's Uncanny Valley.  "Penny" is, as previously discussed, one of the most disturbing (pre-internet) images from the hand of man.

Disturbing enough to render Hawkgirl's haiku nearly unrecognizable!

OH MY GOODNESS WHAT'S
WRONG YOU LOOK POSITIVELY
TERRIFIED OF ME! 

By the way, Penny runs away from Hawkgirl, who goes to search for her at the end of the story. She is never found.  Penny, I mean.  Thank Ra for small favors.

What haiku can you pen to commemorate the terrifying aspect of this zombie Lambchop?

Heh. You obviously have a different accent than I do, because where I am from the second line wouldn't scan.

But it's a great sentiment.

Cleveland accent -- the "yer" in "fire" isn't very pronounced.

Can we agree on "DIE ABOMINATION DIE"?

Zombie Lambchop...is just so...perfect.

No, that's not a Haiku. I'm terrible at haikus.

I like "Die abomination die". In fact, it may be the name of my next quartet.

Shiera is in
the Museum Gardens - because
the night guard is drunk.

Penny for your thoughts?
Your nightmares are worth much more
Sleep tight, Shiera.

The moon shines brightly,
Revealing the mummy dog.
Kill that thing, Hawkgirl!

I stumped Mark Waid at a ComicCon trivia contest a few years ago with the question "what was the name of the silver-age Hawkgirl's dog?". Won a tee-shirt!
