Beware Haiku Lovers!

by Phil P Robson

Haiku writers all make me sick
I could rhyme better words with my d**k
I reckon your crazy
Or just goddamn lazy
What’s wrong with a good limerick?

Only kidding, I don’t really hate you
Its more like I don’t know what to do
I only know its three lines
I dunno if it rhymes
Won’t somebody explain this haiku?

Author's Note: No offence meant, I thought it was about time I added something a little "lighter" to my library. Sorry about the language too, any help on writing Haiku's appreciated, Phil

I can't write a limerick so i guess we're even?

i agree with kara haha i've never written a limerick. i find that syllables are easier than meter/rhyme for me.

i think haikus are comfortable because they give you (usually) 17 syllables to say something meaningful. even if it's silly. i guess i like a challenge. and i'm all about saying something in as few words as possible. (although my comment would suggest otherwise...haha)
