Why was the rooster wearing underwear?

The whole town is weird. They've got villagers on the news every night here and they all seem like they're covering for the murderer.

It's a small village, so everyone probably knows everyone, but something's really afoot in that place.

They know that after the five death already they only need to worry about seven killings, then a break followed by five more and it will all be over.

Maybe their serial killer is also the man who met Andy Griffith.
The town can afford to lose one but not both.

Writing Haiku is easy
I don't understand what the big deal is to make a good Japanese
poem.

His next step was to murder 7 more people. And then 5 more.

The Vapors were so close to haiku and probably didn't even know it:

Turning  Japanese
(I) Think I'm turning Japanese
I really think so

Makes no sense to me

Wichita's BTK Killer wrote poetry:

Oh! Death to Nancy
What is this taht  I can see
Cold icy hands taking hold of me
for Death has come, you all can see.
Hell has open it,s  gate to trick me.
Oh! Death, Oh! Death, can't you spare me, over for another year!
I'll stuff your jaws till you can't talk
I'll blind  your leg's till you can't walk
I'll tie your hands till you can't make a stand.
And finally I'll close your eyes so you can't see
I'll bring sexual death unto you for me.
B.T.K.


Oh, Anna Why Didn't You Appear
T' was perfect plan of deviant pleasure so bold on that Spring niteMy inner felling hot with propension of the new awakening season
Warn, wet with inner fear and rapture, my pleasure of entanglement,like new vines at night
Oh, Anna, Why Didn't You AppearDrop of fear fresh Spring rain would roll down from your nakednessto scent to lofty fever that burns within,
In that small world of longing, fear, rapture, and desparation,the game we play, fall on devil earsFantasy spring forth, mounts, to storm fury, then winter clam atthe end.
Oh, Anna Why Didn't You AppearAlone, now in another time span I lay with sweet enrapture garmentsacross most private thought
Bed of Spring moist grass, clean before the sun, enslaved withcontrol, warm wind scenting the air, sun light sparkle tearsin eyes so deep and clear.
Alone again I trod in pass memory of mirrors, and ponder why fornumber eight was not.
Oh, Anna Why Didn't You Appear

hardinparamedic: Damn Japan. Even your Serial Killers are weird.


Not that weird.  Poet serial killer is a staple in serial killer fiction, though they tend more to quote poems by writers they admire rather than write their own original poems.
(The mystery book I'm reading right now, In A Strange City by Laura Lippman, the killer is a Poe aficionado.)

In real life, there's the English American outlaw  Black Bart.

And Bonny Parker, though she was more of a robber than a serial killer.
