Written as part of a series of Alphabet Haiku
This one strays wildly from the rules of traditional haiku. Yes, I could have written about an iguana; but when I found the word interloper, I was hooked—not because of what it means, but merely for how it sounds. The haiku above reads like the headline of a newspaper article, and it makes no sense whatsoever; but it was fun to write, and that is the purpose of these exercises.
Interloper: a person who becomes involved in a place or situation where they are not wanted or are considered not to belong
