SEAL Team 666 Haiku

El Jeffe of Outrageistan dot com tweeted a Haiku review of SEAL Team 666.

SEALS fight the undead
Stephen Hunter meets Buffy
and dog eats demons

A Haiku is a very short form of Japanese poetry characterized by a 5-7-5 syllable structure.

Here was my reply to the review:

Nice SEAL Haiku
It pleased me to no end
their little dog too

For the record, this is the first SEAL Team 666 Haiku.  

Thanks El Jeffe.

Now for the rest of you blokes. Do you have a Haiku in you?

Have Haiku in you?
Send SEAL Team 666 verse
to me for award

I haven't figured out what the award will be, but I'll think of something. Post them in the comments section of this posting along with whatever attribution you want. I'll keep this alive for about a week, then make a decision.

Now, get to it.
