Un bel exemple de haïku de contestation. De plus le second segment en dit beaucoup sur ce mouvement spontané.

Structure of this haiku.

Used techniques :

* engagé - Committed haïku.
Haïku with a political message or opinion, an involvement

* culturel - Use of external cultural reference.
The haiku is based on an external cultural element, well known by the reader. There is a sharing of an environment (place, situation...) or cultural element (music, painting...) that will seek memories or sensations in the memory and experience of the reader. This device saves a lot of space, nothing else is needed, the effect is achieved by the reader's contribution.

* simili - Similitudes.
Use of images with common semes. The sharing of common semes (qualities, characteristics) makes images reinforce each other. There is resonance because the mind makes the relationship between the two images.

A cup of tea and a lake share the fact that they are an expanse of liquid surrounded by a rim. We can "see" the image of one in the other.

* trans_S - Transition in the surface discourse.
Surface transition.
