optician's bill
unable to read
the small print

Published cattails April 2019 page 39

Editor's choice:

What if the first line had been: grocer’s bill? The result would have been a very mundane poem not worth committing to memory. But put ‘optician’s bill’ instead and the irony hits you in the eye. Yet another senryu where juxtaposing two apparently unrelated images results in a whole which is funnier than the sum total of the parts.
