Lunch Pail Lawyers


I don’t know if a lunch pail lawyer is different from a brown-bag lawyer, but it’s a useful question to ponder if you don’t have anything at hand to read, that is to say, from the f/k/a post on lunch pail lawyering – as always, haiku-bountiful:

lunch alone
without a book
i read my mind

(haiku by tom clausen)

    Am I crazy, or is that not a haiku?

    Haikus are:

    “A major form of Japanese verse, written in 17 syllables divided into 3 lines of 5, 7, and 5 syllables, and employing highly evocative allusions and comparisons, often on the subject of nature or one of the seasons.”

    They are always 17 syllables. This imposter is only 11 syllables.

  2. Hello, TacoDave, You’ve been misinformed by people who didn’t quite understand how haiku should be adapted to the English language. (For instance, they don’t even have syllables in the Japanese language.) Check out my post “is it or ain’t it haiku?” and materials linked therein. See
