The HAIKU THREAD!!!!!!: everyone must contribue one

Does everyone know how to write a hiaku? If not, the only rule is that it must follow the 5-7-5 syllable format. You pick the topic, but let people guess what it pretains to before you divulge it's inspriation.

It can be about anything so go hog wild!

(I hope this catches on )


Here's my first one.....

Malko's sound utters---------5 syllables
Monotone, Feminine, Calm--7 syllables
A John or Johnna?-------------5 syllables



That's a pretty obvious one, but it should get things started.

Okay, here's another one....

It deals with a band from the early 1980's. Can you guess which one? It could apply to several, but I was thinking of one in particular.

Tantalizing tunes
Emotional transgressions
Bleeding for laughter

Um, does that one have anything to do with my avatar?

Here are a few I wrote during football season to taunt my family on the ESPN Pigskin Pick 'em.

(Oklahoma vs. Alabama)

Crimson Tide rolls in
Oklahoma kicks its ass
Crimson Tide rolls out

(Notre Dame vs. Purdue)

Luck of the Irish?
What is a Boilermaker?
I care not who wins.

La La La La Tech
Singing songs of dominance
Over OSU
(Louisiana Tech vs. Oklahoma State, and La Tech won!)

Yeah, you know you're a total loser when you write haikus about college football.

The girl studying Japanese lit would liek to point out that technically there is no such thing as hiku and that it's just disembodied renga anyway. We should be doing it linked. But oh well.

The men with white gloves
Push me on the train each day
Salary men stare

I fucking love haiku and I do not know whay.


Stomach hurts today
Wedding plans causing me stress
We should have eloped



Blue screens turn me on
Gaze at this nonsense all day
Tho work to be done




Deathbear rules the joint
Elvis Sicy steel cage match
Interference rules
