Haiku maybe help? (now also with limerics!)
« on: 08 Jan 2003, 23:59 »
Here is much debate.
Many words but little said.
A fix in haiku?

Pointless posts no thought,
reply with e-motes or small,
when will madness end?

Here is precision.
Syllables are seventeen,
or less if you want.

This message is long,
but thorough I must be here.
Only haiku here!

Who knows where this goes?
All of gen-gen in haiku?
Yakspit is a dope.

I think it would help
But my haiku skills are poor
So I'll sit this out

I am tempted, though
To post cool biker haikus

Eric also errs.
The line that starts with "they suck..."
is a bit too long.

Eric, you bastard.
Don't you edit your haikus!
You make me look dumb!

As for fighting you,
do not be ridiculous.
I would hit you hard.

Ghormak let us rest
haiku is not ment for war
friendly we will be

we get along well
if i had extra sandwhich
to you it would go

remember the love
all those hardened balls of love
the moose do not war

no they do not war
they only desire more cows
and can you blame them

You speak words of truth.
The moose only wants more cow.
I cannot blame it.

If one moose yearns for
the same cow as another
fight is imminent.

Symbolic, fight is.
There is no actual hatred.
It's all in good sport.

(I wonder one thing,
the syllable-amount of
the word actual)

So yes, let us rest.
Fighting is not based on hate.
They do it for fun.

Once upon a time
Someone wrote a few haikus
Then he soiled himself

--------------------------

I am like a tree
When the lumberjack stops by
I cannot stay erect

--------------------------

I do not like beer
Spare me that conniving phoam
Carbonated piss

--------------------------

Sometimes fake acounts
(Captain Planet and Roger)
Make the forums fun

Others aren't as fun
like RPG Creator
and that CJ guy

--------------------------

Clowns are horrible
I met a clown at the fair
He exposed himself

I was traumitized
He claims it was a balloon
I know what I saw

Mother called the cops
We violently beat the clown
Someone filmed it all

Seven weeks later
There was an immense trial
Mom and I were jailed

Seven years later
We were finally released
But that clown walks free
