Celebrate National Poetry Day with These Pop Culture Haikus

From Hollywood.com Staff

Established in 1994 by British philanthropist William Sieghart, National Poetry Day is celebrated on the first Thursday of ever October. Poetry Day isn't a major holiday, but thanks to the wonders of social media, it's one we'll never forget either (#NationalPoetryDay reveals the proud, lyrically-inclined masses of Twitter).

In honor of the poetic celebration, Hollywood.com whipped up a handful of pop culture-themed haikus that would make even 17th century Japanese poet Matsuo Basho swoon over Michael Fassbender. He was looking for a reason anyway, so we're kind of doing him a favor.

Check them out, then write up your own stanza of pop poetry and keep the party going.
