Haikuna Matata

HAIKUNA MATATA is a book of haikus written by Al Lafrance, and illustrated by Jacob Trillo. It will be released in Spring 2018 – more details coming soon. In the meantime, here are 3 selected haikus:


in such rocky times
may you find the strength to scream


has Dr. Pepper saved lives
it seems unlikely


scissors in the dark
an unexpected package
cross fingers and cut

…and just for fun, a rejected one:


No scarecrows but hey,
We’re in a fucking corn maze!
Corn corn corn corn corn
