Macho Man Randy Savage Memorial Haikus

Posted By on Mon, May 23, 2011 at 11:07 AM

These were the Macho Man Randy Savage memorial "haikus" submitted via Facebook, web-comments and email after his death from a car accident last week.

The word "haikus" is in quotes, since some of them aren't haikus in the strictest sense—the format is five syllables, seven syllables, five syllables—but we decided to include them because they were submitted as "tribute." Note that tribute is also in quotes.

Any additional haikus may be submitted via the comment section below. Don't feel the need to keep them above the belt. Macho Man never did and that's part of what made him great. Oooooh yeeeeah!

Since this is about poetry, we also posted a song from Savage's 2003 rap album, called "Be a Man," a message directed at Hulk Hogan. Whether it's a response to his behavior in the ring, or this song from Hulk's album, BW doesn't know.

Sleep well, sweet Savage.

I watched wrestling back in the day
Little did I know this would be dude's demise
I thought he would choke and die on a Slim Jim... Oohhh yeeaahhh!

Joshua Wilkie
I just read the prior posts—people used the Slim Jim thing before me—ruined my joke—the joke about a dead guy—on a dead guy's memorial haiku thing—I'm an ass—deserved it...

Macho madness no more
Childhood memories gone
We'll miss you, oooh yeeah!
