By Joseph J. Truncale TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on August 27, 2015
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Poetry is the song of life and my favorite poetic form is Japanese haiku. I have read, reviewed and have written many books over the years on haiku. Being a senior the title of this book (Pimp my walker: the official book of old age haiku by Mike Slosberg) caught my attention. This little 96 page hardcover volume has 73 haiku along with numerous cartoons to spice up the book.

The last page encourages you to write your own haiku, which consists of 17 syllables, with a three line poem of 5 syllables on the first and third lines and 7 syllables on the middle like.

A few of the amusing old age poems in this volume include the following:
“I can remember “High school reunion
When sex was better than food Everyone looks so ancient
Now vice is versa” Except yours truly”

“We’ve stopped arguing, “My grandson and I
Not a good sign, since conflict Have something big in common.
Helps circulation” We both wear pampers”

This little book was a quick 10 minute read; nevertheless, I found it a sometimes funny but most of the time amusing book relating haiku.

Rating: 4 Stars. Joseph J. Truncale (Author: Haiku Moments: How to read, write and enjoy haiku).

"Pimp My Walker" is a collection of 73 hilarious -- and by hilarious I mean laugh out loud -- haiku about aging by ad exec/novelist Mike Slosberg. I'm a fan of humorous verse: the best funny poetry is a whirlwind of formality with a core of savage wisdom. Slosberg's haiku rank up there with the comic verse of Roy Blount Jr., Dorothy Parker and Philip Larkin. A couple of my personal favorites are "I'm incontinent./ That is, in America/ And not traveling." And "Sailing on cruise ship./ Bored to distraction./ Eating continuously." In addition to the haiku, "Pimp My Walker" includes Slosberg's deliciously satirical cartoons and illustrations. This is a perfect gift book -- sure the people you give it to will give you that "so you think I'm old, thanks a lot" look -- but as soon as they start reading it, they'll be laughing with recognition. And no matter what age you are, you'll want a copy for yourself.

Very sorry.. I bought the book for a friend turning 50 because I loved the title and the concept. I also enjoy haiku. However, as much as I tried, I did not find more than two haiku within the pages that I liked. I would recommend this as funny gag gift only.
