  1. The word play employed in Terry's haiku, satirically allusive of "Good Morning America," not only enhances the "hai" aspect of the poem, but also effectively acts as a social commentary.

    Note: "Good Morning America is an American morning television show that is broadcast on ABC. It debuted on November 3, 1975...Co-anchors report the morning's top headlines from a set in Times Square. The show features a combination of breaking news, interviews, in-depth reporting and weather. The program covers important issues with key figures from around the world and a wide spectrum of topics ..."

  2. FYI:

    1 "porning"

    Porning comes from the verb "porn,"

    In the infinitive case, it is "to porn"

    Definition: To watch porn
