May I be bold and suggest maybe SENRYU rather than haiku.

Senryu is similar to haiku in construction, but senryu tend to
be about human foibles while haiku tend to be about nature,
and senryu are often cynical or darkly humorous while haiku are serious.

With regards,  darkly cynical and dimly humorous  -- John  W0UN
