Les bus scolaires d'Amérique semblent être dangereux pour les autos. On les appelle aussi le "péril jaune" en référence à leur couleur. Et encore ici, une structure en 2+1. Au fait, qu'aurait produit comme effet ce haïku en structure 1+2 ?

Structure of this haiku.

Used techniques :

* allusion - Allusion to something known by the reader.
This technique refers to something that is supposed to be known to the reader. This type of haiku only works for the reader who understands the allusion. It is often a cultural element or an environment shared between the author and the reader. The reference adds a note of complicity in the speech.

ex: Liberty Market: a chain of stores in the USA.

It can also be illustrated in jargon (specialized languages shared by a community).

Effects: resmem - Resonance in memory.

At the level: 1-surf - Surface level
