SMUG SENRYU ~~3~~ -- a collection of 240 syllabic haikulike 'itemettes' -- is intended to be a quite jokey and fun continuation of the same author's previous SMUG SENRYU ~~2.~~ "The essential smugness" may be seen in how the author of this relatively new aggregation strove to cling absolutely to rigorous aspects of **5-7-5** in terms of counting the included syllables; also, each of the individual brief items might seem to insist on being only one basic English sentence. That no wish or attempt ever existed to honor some of Basho's supposedly absolute haiku approaches may seem at least hugely to validate the modern and perhaps generic title aspect "senryu"?
