Gaga haiku

Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, March 28, 1986

It’s Gaga’s birthday
Wonder what’s her idea
Of a “birthday suit”?

A star for this age
Socially aware, using
The ‘Net to connect

A star of outrage
Or at least one who’s able
To create a stir

A dash of Grace Jones
And echoes of Madonna
Still, Gaga’s unique

And beneath the flash
She can really play, write, sing
— And sell to millions

Not just marketing,
I think, when she stands against
AIDS, and bullying

She appreciates
Being different, celebrates
Living on the fringe

We marginalize
Way too many dear people
She welcomes them in

So happy birthday
Stefani Germanotta
Have a Gaga day!
