In honor of National Poetry Day 8th October 2015, actress Kerry Washington challenged Scandal fans and viewers
to write a haiku in honor of the show.
For those unfamiliar with the Japanese poetry form, a haiku is basically a verse which consists of 17 syllables divided into three lines of 5, 7 and 5 syllables. It normally uses evocative comparisons and allusions.
This is my haiku on Scandal:
Lies, deceit and love.
Power, gladiator skills;
all describe Scandal.
