Exploring The White Goddess

haiku in 3 verses.

The year is closing.
Time to appoint a new king;

Alfred’s Story-Haiku in 3 Verses

An apology. I think you have to be from Bristol to understand this posting well. If you are not from Bristol I hope you enjoy the words anyway.

Is Alfred still there?

Inside a glass display case

at the museum.

Who is Alfred then?

A Silverback Gorilla

Died at Bristol Zoo.

Of fright in his cage.

It happened in World War II,

During an air-raid.
