a comment from Sedge inspired a hunt for havishams
A Rubber at Miss Havisham's
from Illustrations of Miss Havisham from Dickens's Great Expectations
Australian model for the character?
Eliza Emily Donnithorne's Great Expectations
from Great Expectations at The Charles Dickens Page
OD'ing on all the testosterone in the bloke logs, so I came over here for a flash of well turned ankle.
And also 'cos I came with a Dickensian Grt. Exptn. Haiku.
The table is laid
promises made and broken
like to strike gold lad?

I should probably post this on the main blog but just saw this "World Haiku Review"
"In Praise of Non-Japanese Haiku" is very good.
Wish I had studied it before dashing off those two
silly non-haiku haiku.
