Herman Van Rompuy's Sad 'Even More Lonely' Twitter Haiku

Herman Van Rompuy, the president of the European Council, seems a bit sad. In the wake of his failure to persuade EU leaders to agree to a budget, the former Belgian prime minister has expressed his mood in haiku poetry.

Haunting. It's even more morose when read in his native tongue. Poor Van Rompuy.
