Haiku With Problems

The jester donned his liripipe [Kevin Andrew Murphy]

Death fetched his robe and scythe [Ethetran]

The singer grabbed her mandolin [Irene Adler]

and played a tune so blythe [Kevin Andrew Murphy]

The king was in his counting house [(trad)]

Along with his accountant [Francine]

"The blackbirds are embezzling!" [Kevin Andrew Murphy]

"A consid'rable amount, and [Ethetran]

What with falling interest [loaf]

The honey stocks are low" [Ethetran]

And how the queen will clean her crown [Dassn't Say]

On Tuesday, I don't know [Ethetran]
