Haiku #212

... a number two man -
that's the Japanese P.M.
his wife's assessment

Oh dear! But then, they seem to change PM fairly frequently anyway!

One must wonder ... who is number one man?

Raj said...

well wives always like to have twos of everything. kids, shoes bags etc.. why not men right?

hell, dave you still keep it running. the haiku ofcourse. great work!

ha! great humor - but also a brilliant bite, i think...

the p.m. is #2 behind the emperor - but the emperor is mostly a figurehead - though the p.m. has more actual power, his title has less panache.

so it seems the p.m.'s wife covets style over substance?

Wives are so cruel

A wife can think that,
but why publish it for all
and look like a fool?

Ha! Thanks All
Have to admit I forgot about the Emperor, but what the P.M.s wife actually said was that he's a number 2 or 3 person, not a number 1. Couldn't get it all into a haiku form, though.
Nothing against her saying it to him - but in public? Come on!
