Modern English Haiku or ME Haiku is a new form of haiku that follows the 5 / 7 / 5 / 2 pattern of syllables with one repetition. Conceptualized by me, ArchDuke Kenneth.

The traditional Japanese haiku's "on" or "beats" as known in the English verse, has a 5 / 7 / 5 pattern of syllables and no repeat.

Hauling Tourists


I’m a self-made man

Of bygone Saigon era

While my friends struggle

In school


I get pay to run

Rickshaw on foot, good workout

I know this town like

My palm
