Pop Culture Haikus: “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”

A haiku is a beautiful type of poem with a certain number of syllables for each of its three lines: five for the first line, seven for the second, and five again for the third.  I was inspired by last night’s premiere of the new Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. show (you can watch that episode here) to try my own hand at writing some haikus.  The following haikus are based on some of the characters and moments that stuck out to me the most from the first episode.  I think this show has a lot of neat ideas, and I cannot wait to see what else it has up its sleeve.

Agent Phil Coulson

He died but still lives/Still brings loners together/Same old tricks, “new” dog?

Rising Tide/Agent Skye

Crusading blogger/Spoke loudly against black suits/Now sleeping with enemy.

The Hooded Hero

Average worker/Not-so-average powers/That’s a bad mix, yes?

Agent Grant Ward

New kid on the block/Too serious in fun world/Loosen up, kiddo!

Agent Melinda May

Veteran spy girl/Played by one who voiced Mulan/She knows how to fight!

Agents Fitz and Simmons

Resident techies/Solving problems in nick of time/Good minds think alike.

Lola (Coulson’s Car)

Refurbished classic/Hidden features under wheels/Sounds just right for spies!

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Spies in heroes’ world/Movies part of TV now/Comics do no wrong!

I think I will post more haikus in the future if that is all right with everyone.  What do you guys think?  If you saw the first episode of S.H.I.E.L.D., what did you think of it?  How awesome is it that we now get to see Clark Gregg on ABC TV each week?  Leave your thoughts in the comments, and please watch S.H.I.E.L.D. in the coming weeks.  I think we’ve got a really special show on our hands here!
