art café evening-
the door security guy
hums a 007 tune

Aaaaah! (-;
This was me a while back at one of the various open mike events in Bristol.

but maybe 'an 007 tune' rather than 'a'?

Good point, but if you say it out loud I feel it would be 'a 007 tune' but because the zeroes look like the vowel 'o' it looks visually correct with an 'an'! (-;

I think it's usually pronounced 'double O Seven' rather than Oh Oh Seven.

Maybe you could write it as 'double O seven'?

I rather like haiku that allow a little ambiguity between the text on paper and the spoken word.

Hi Alison!

I put another version up, including your suggestion, and then it's really with the fishes. (-;
