The other present-
The one you were well out of
Is a long time past.

Is a long time past,
he, who did forget my name,
before I forgot.

Before, I forgot
But today I remember
To bear it in mind.

To bear it in mind
is among the first things to
teach to a soldier.

The best way to kill
is to do it quick and clean,
or run like the wind.

Or run like the wind
Was the alternative choice
It was that or death.

First of all the things
is to start your haiku with
the last line before.

my feelings are very true
Haikus are no good!

(I didn't see I'd been beaten out so this was my first post, to be ignored)
the last line before?
Ack! I didn't read the rules!
I still don't like them!

Lass in the bonnet

woke up the Father.
