Commentaire.

Haïku basé sur l'analogie entre le retour des oiseaux charognards (Cathartes aura, aussi appelé "vautour turc" en Ohio, USA) et les assassins de Jules César. La relation se fait par la manière de nommer le moment "Ides de mars". Il est en effet tué en plein sénat le 15 mars -44. L'utilisation d'une référence culturelle dans un haïku permet d'ajouter des connotations extérieures facilement mais avec le danger de ne pas être compris par ceux pour qui elle n'est pas connue.
