Is it too late now
to jump on the bandwagon?
I hope it is not.

'Tis never too late
To speak with only haiku
For great fun they are

Why do all haikus
End up with speech like Yoda,
Word order, reversed

Haikus are quite fun
Except if you don't know how
To make good haiku

Or you could copy
From Bart Simpson's Guide to Life
The guide to po'try

Note this clever skill
I have with apostrophe
Make six beats to five

I stop haiku now
I have no more words to say
My speech is quite done.

My panacaea
is under attack from trap
I defend thee o' beer.

He, a philistine
dares to question thy flavour
Barbararian he.

But yet in haiku
five in last line I see not
he gives beats of 6.

If younger siblings
have trouble remembering
the letter's order

teach them this haiku. *)
Memory will be improved
for easier fun.

F G H I J K L
M N O P Q.

R S T U V
W X Y Z, yes -
it's the alphabet.

_____________
*) Yes, I am aware
that a group of four haikus
cannot be called one

and that the haiku
was traditionally part
of another form

of longer poem -
but nobody really cares
and neither do I.

Haiku is from east
Japan, where China expelled

Haiku is a skill
Known to many a culture
But mastered by few

Those who can't partake
Must simply lack inner peace
It will come one day

We are so cultured
To post only in haiku
It makes me so proud

Maybe someone should
make a game all in haiku
Wouldn't that be fun?

Well, no, I guess not
I don't know what I have smoked
Maybe some salmon

Ok, enough puns
I will really stop this now
Back to AGS!

I am disturbed, Eric
But by your Nazi strictness
May our games flourish

And now is the time
To point and laugh at you
Yes, I can Haiku!

True that it's a joke
but please read the message
do not insult me

I do not get it
how can I make a Haiku?
I wonder all day.

when should I use five?
and when should I use seven?
and when five again?

I don't think I can
make a haiku that works kids
so I will not try.

All i wanted was
for this thread to flourish some
you were breaking it

my haiku continues, boy
it will rock your ass

you sucka M.Cs

ghormak's got my back

trap, he's got my front
he could haiku ya'll till dawn
you better not step

now get yo'self set
cause now is the time where we
dance. Dance of the dead.

haiku past the grave
i'm gonna lick out dem brains
