    First smoke, then silence
    Your very expensive rig
    Dies so suddenly

    I didn't write that, but I remember reading it in a Bass Haiku thread years ago on the Low Down Lowdown. Cracks me up every time!

    Post your own bass haiku poetry in this thread. A haiku is a Japanese traditional poem consisting of three lines: the first with 5 syllables, the second with 7 syllables, and the third with 5 syllables.

    Have fun!

    it's not in your gear
    it's in the notes that you play
    and how you touch the bass
