References: This haiku was inspired by (or stolen from) Al Purdy, a gritty Canadian poet that was brought to my attention by Alan over at A Good Beer Blog. As you may or may not know, Alan is having a beer poetry contest where the winner gets tickets to TAP New York, the Craft Beer and Fine Food festival. We’re talking hundreds of dollars of prizes here, so get off your duff and start versing.
