Rhyming Haiku Madness


A variation on the Haiku Madness game. The first and the third lines of five syllables must rhyme. The next poster turns the middle seven syllable line into a five syllable line, makes up a new seven syllable middle line, and makes up a third five syllable line that rhymes with the first line. The next poster works off the seven syllable line, yada, yada, yada.

I've started this game.
I hope it goes well and you
Do not find it lame.

But for a thread of this sort?
Too early to tell.

Succeed or crash,
There seem to be no middle ground:
Benison or bash.

4 billion, or so,
Said Carl Sagan on Cosmos.
He looked like Frodo.

Longing to have things
Is fine, as long longing
Doesn't bind, like strings.

It began. Am I wrong?

Before the last syllable.
Here, have this one.

The last syllable
In a haiku is the best.
Is it fillable?

Then it's all a haze.
