Have a go at a Haiku!

So many countries!

The sequence seems quite random

Which one will be next?

The linked article

implies that translation to

English is step one?

 

(I think it’s time to

scrap the two hour march-in:

seat ‘em, let ‘em wave.)

Two hundred nations

In the parade, including

Nauru and Gabon.

Hakuhou promised

To be in the Olympics

But did not say how

 

Someone suggested

A dohyo iri, perhaps

But nothing happened

 

Much disappointment

About nothing there, really

Now, back to sumo

It's their only chance

To get on television;

Give them their moment.

No dohyo-iri?

Don't mess with kami.

Two tsuna just made
One white, the other one red
Speak of happy times

Obon is coming,

Call forth forgotten ghosts, like

Old Hakuho threads ...

Stay home to get sick
but to go into nature
would make you healthy

I posted a song of these haiku on my Kuukido channel

life gets short and depressing

The last part of the song reminds me of "Tom's Diner" by Suzanne Vega.

Can you at least give us the kana? I know translating poetry is beyond cumbersome. Obviously, this one's in Japanese, but I'm too old to learn kanji, I suspect.

Mr. Sumo man

Do Gambarize in Aki 

And please stay healthy

(Translation works too..)

 

Kana:

おすもうさン

あきばしょがんばって。

けがなしに

Not quite right is the Sumo man, it has to be more honorific, Sumo Sir
