Penguin swims swiftly
Waddles across the cold earth
But he cannot fly

Man, I looove penguins. They're just so darn cool. I'm sure this haiku would bring a tear to Mr. Popper's eye, just as it did to mine. Thank you for this truely inspiring work of penguiny art.

Penguin Poetry
This reminds me of what I'd see as the epitaph of the penguin in Wallace & Grommitt's Wrong Trousers! Poor Penguin. So sinister. Perhaps if he could have flown things may have been different. I bet penguins around the world ( ? ) are rejoicing about finally having haiku written about them! Cool!
