Haikus for Famous Dead People

I enjoy writing these fun blogs where I get to mess around with different word structures and stuff. There is a word for this - But I dont know it. I should ask Kay - she knows these weird things. So anyway - When I first started my blog I did a Haiku post , and I feel like revisiting it tonight but with a slight twist. Tonight I want to try and come up with Haikus for famous dead people. If you arent familiar with what a Haiku is - its Japanese poetry with a specific rhyming structure - three lines. Five syllables. Seven syllables and then Five syllables.
