blue legacy

here's one for napowrimo

i was playing around with google assistant tonight on my new phone. (not that i've never had google assistant before, but...)
i asked her to recite me a sonnet and she apparently thought she was complying but gave me a poem by yosa buson:

over-ripe sushi,
the master
is full of regret.

so then i asked her for a haiku and she gave me this:

don't call me, he says.
he's off on new adventures
roaming in the woods.

and i tried googling it and it doesn't appear anywhere on the interwebs so i'm curious who sourced it.
