HaikuLeaks Turns the Wikileaks Cables Into Poetry
The diplomatic cables released by Wikileaks -- 1830 of them, so far -- have unsurprisingly been the source of a lot of controversy. What's more surprising is that they've also been the source of haiku poetry.
A site called HaikuLeaks used a computer algorithm to find 65 different haikus within the Wikileaks documents, and some of them are pretty great.
I mean, LimerickLeaks would have been funnier, but unintentional poems like
As is typical,
the Pope stayed above the fray
and did not comment.
might actually pass as decent haiku to a non-expert. Who knew Wikileaks was supporting the arts?
