lifting up the lost 

makes one strong enough to punch 

devil in the face

tides of time are never late

Wistman, your haikus are always striking and entertaining. We all have our bad days once in a while. I'm glad you accepted my criticism with a gracious spirit. I'll try to do the same when my turn comes. Keep on haikuing. :)

steeping the mincemeat 

confuses South-East Europe

we never do that

 

(No, really... never, ever and call it a cultural difference, but I'm not steeping any mincemeat. Ever :D )
