Rick Rockwell Haiku

Following his short-lived marriage to Darva Conger on the widely-lamented Fox reality television show "Who Wants to Marry a Multi-Millionaire," Rick Rockwell contributed a curious haiku to a literary webzine (La Petite Zine). His masterpiece? "Love on television/not as strange as concept seems/but Darva present."

(Note to Rockwell: because it contains an extra syllable in the first line, your effort is not even technically a haiku. A proper haiku follows the 5-7-5 scheme. Eg: Crap Upon a Page / Follows Crap Upon a Stage / Ours? A Crap-Filled Age.)

[Don't believe the hype: The show was named "Who Wants to Marry a Multi-Millionaire" after producer Mike Fleiss received an email from Rockwell beginning, "Well, I'm worth about 1.5 million..."]
