Tanka T109

How fitting is it
That an American won
Rifle shooting gold –
At the Rio Olympics?
Congrats Virginia Thrasher

Notes to this poem…

Just a little sarcastic statement on American gun culture. It was air rifle, not real rifle.

And that’s quite the name, Virginia Thrasher!

The T-series poems are tanka composed while I was not engaged in some activity during which I frequently composed poetry. That is why these are called the Inactive Tanka collection.
