May I share my haikus?

    I guess that wasn't really a legitimate question since I'm going to anyway.

    I made a dumb bet
    Five bullets in the chamber
    Math was not my thing

    Once you’ve figured out
    How to rule the universe
    Winning is boring

    Don’t dump me just yet
    I have a date for tonight
    Cheating will be fun

    My friend always said
    Stupid is as stupid does
    Then he died somehow

    No chance to survive
    All guns are made right-handed
    Lock and load, lefties

    Haikus are easy
    As long as your syllables
    Line up just the right

    Double click the link
    Two windows popped up, genius
    Learn from your mistakes

    Sure I’ll take a hit
    Sixteen seems too low to stay
    Dad, how’s it going

    Zippers changed the world
    But I’ll bet the inventor
    Had no hairy friends

    Let’s stop arguing
    And agree on just one thing
    I am always right

    My pet ran away
    I’ll drown my sorrows with food
    Hey, this tastes funny

    It's been a while
    Since I wrote any haikus
    That's why this one sucks

    I apologize
    For that previous poem
    Now for a good one

    I was just kidding
    All of these will be lousy
    You should stop reading

    Five syllable line
    Can you believe I did that?
    What a cheap way out

    I write braille haikus
    :. :: .. : . ..: :. ::: .: .. :. .:. ..
    Trust me, that's seven

    Well, that is it for now. There shall be more in the future if there are hints of interest.

    I recently had a (fairly long) conversation with a girl on AIM that was entirely in haiku form.
  3. whoa...................
  4. hey those are pretty
    good I wish I was more cre-
    ative, I'm jealous
  5. My band played one song at an awards show to well over 3,000 people, and for some reason the soundguys could not get the vocal mic and the backup vocal mic to work at the same time. My keyboard player spent the rest of the evening insulting the soundguys in haiku.

    I am having a
    conversation with someone
    in haiku on phone
  7. You have a pretty shallow grasp of what makes a haiku.

    You took this thread
    Way to seriously when
    A joke was afoot unbeknownst to you.

    I stand wounded,
    not insulted not one angered
    Not sure about haikus.

    Do not tell me

    Traditionally, a haiku involves some aspect of nature or the seasons.

    Nature sucks hard
    seasons as well, writing kaiku
    Improperly, off to hell

    I'm pretty proud of that one.

  15. Hmmm, I see the Faulkner influence, not so much on the Hemmingway though.............B-

    A TV Land haiku-

    Leave It To Beaver
    And you'll be disappointed.
    Boy's dumb as a stump.

    I used to use this as my sig:

    Cats taste like chicken?
    Mine just tastes like fur. Was I
    supposed to peel it?

    Or something like that anyway.
