Wandering poet #2 – Ajumma Attack

16 Dec


Another haiku for you this week! I used wordcalc.com again if anyone is going to challenge me. LOL As always I will accept submissions which you can send to talktome@the-orange-backpack.com


                                   New video game idea

                                  Called Ajumma Attack

                            Watch out – Kimchi to the eye!

Ajumma Attack

Ajumma Attack

For those of you who are unfamiliar with the term “ajumma” it literally means a woman who is old enough to be married. In the context above, I am referring to a specific group of ajummas that are fiesty and love to wear visors or flower print. They are truly one of my favorite things about South Korea, and I do not say that with even a hint of sarcasm.  They are tough, resourceful, and don’t seem to bend to the Confucian idea of women being submissive. I could go on and on about how great they are but that’s a whole other post entirely.
