[Really Bad and Technically Incorrect] Haiku Poetry Applied to a Minimal Trinity Doctrine

Jesus is true man
But He's full of deity
So He's God as well

The Father is God
Did you even doubt that fact?
If you did you're toast

Who is the third guy?
Oh yes, the Holy Spirit
Totally divine

Jesus is the Son
He's not the Father, okay?
Sabellius, ick!

Spirit is distinct
Neither is he Son nor Pop
Please don't confound them!

We stop at this point
The rest is speculative
Proceed at great risk!

Comment: It sure beats translating the Athanasian Symbol into Japanese! =D

I wanted to criticize your haiku, but I think Wikipedia had foreknowledge of your activities and said this:

Haiku is a very short poetic form: Traditional Japanese haiku consisted of three lines of 5, 7, and 5 units (morae) which generally corresponded to syllables. They also contained a special season word — the kigo — descriptive of the season in which the haiku was set. Some say that a haiku must also combine two different images, be written in present tense, have a focus on description and have a pause (the kireji or "cutting word") at the end of either the first or second line. All such rules are based in the Japanese language and literary tradition. Although rarely broken by Japanese haiku poets, haiku not written in Japanese are more likely to break one or more of these rules.

You definitely broke more than one of the rule, PP. And in more than one way.

You're obnoxious Frank
Picking on lil' ol' PP
Hope you're happy now.

PP, still in violation of the inspired Wikipedia!
