Haiku #10 - High-Hanging Fruit

Many beasts compete,
Snatching at low-hanging fruit.
Others learn to fly.

  3. Thanks, Mark. BTW - I appreciate all comments, even ones critical of my writing. I intend for this blog to be a way to have discussions with like-minded folks.

  4. I have a rather Freudian take on this. After reading the title "high hanging fruit", I always read the first line "many breasts compete." I've read it multiple times on multiple days and it always provokes a doubletake.

  5. Nick, I didn't have that layer in mind -- maybe I shouldn't admit to that.
