I received an email entitled “haiku from flint” that I really didn’t get. Composing my reply, which read “no nature reference => urban haiku?” seventeen syllables burst into my head and went out my fingers. Perhaps it is true that an urban haiku is regarded as having been discovered rather than authored because one moment nothing, the next it was spewing out onto the screen.
Anyway, I feel really bad about it. If I believed in karma, I’d really be sweating it right now.
Whew. Thanks for letting me get that off my chest.
unless, of course, it has interchangeable colored wigs. You know.
What odd petting zoo
all others in the open
for goats private rooms
Didn’t you hear? Haiku has been deprecated for Net humour purposes, in favour of the limerick.
I can’t. It would be too inappropriate. Besided I really do fell bad about it. I’m sorry.
There once was a man from The Dope
Who’s words were as pure as the Pope
But he wrote something tasteless
So who wouldn’t blame us
If we beat him and hung him with rope
Not haiku, I know. But, posting something that some may consider racist is a sure way to create controversy on SDMB. Even if you do post a disclaimer.
All that out of the way… I wouldn’t mind seeing it. I promise not to flame you.
