HaikuLeaks: Wikileaks in Japanese poem form

Some people out there aren’t big fans of Haikus. Those 5/7/5 Japanese poems. I am not some people. I even resigned my job with the power of Haiku. So I’m impressed with this website that searches the wikileaks site for naturally occurring haikus. Like these:

cans of Coca-Cola while
inhaling his food.

at all,’ for Hamas.

either on shore or a short
distance off the coast.

It uses a snippet of code that you can run over any text you want. Which you can get here.
