Haiku #49


Stronger bones and hearts
more cancer of the bowel -
beer drinking (to excess?)

The beer is probably better for the bowels than the red meat!

Great one, Dave.

Very interesting haiku, I like how your sentences can be related among themselves.

More than calcium
can be absorbed when loving
Carlsberg to excess.

Oh my, as a health nut this one made me cringe--so true of so many foods!

Great! I also love that coffee staves off diabetes, and tea makes your eyes stronger and sugar? well, sugar is just bad throughout...we still have our paleo bodies in an advanced alien food world. We live longer but have such horrid environmental, lifestyle diseases. Where is utopia? Still, good news about beer! YAY!

Dear Dave, it's remarkable how your stream of haikus seem unending.
This latest is strong and pitiless, great the connection between stronger bones and cancer.
Dave, I have a literary question in my blog for all of you blogfriends, expecially those living in England.

Ronda
Yup, I'd go along with that!

Mariana
Thanks for that - very pleasing observation .

Kass
Oh, I do enjoy your witticisms. Thanks.

steven
I'm glad it was only for a very brief moment. Live dangerously, I say.

Conda
And of more foods with each passing day, it seems.

Linda Sue
Mmmm, but every piece of good news seems tinged with a smidgin of bad.

Tommaso
Thanks. Am a bit adrift with the visiting (again!) but will catch up.

Harlequin
Superb! Thanks so much.
