  • THERE AIN'T NO DEVIL, IT'S JUST GOD WHEN HE'S DRUNK- TOM WAITS

Posted 15 June 2004 - 03:14 PM

yesterday, on another thread i wrote a vampire haiku. pretty bad. nonetheless, the first one i had written since highschool.
steve earle, musician as you know, spent one year writing a haiku everyday.
so i propose on this thread to write a haiku.
very simple rule to writing one. it can be about anything, does not have to rhyme, and must have 17 syllables.
i'll start off

my dad has had baked beans and cooked cabbage, stay away from the toilet.

it has to be written 5, 7, 5, i thought.

went camping sunday
my friend fell into the lake
and oh, how i laughed

i still vote for social democracy. it's like communism lite! only 1/3 the calories of normal communism!
whoever said "money can't buy happiness" was never poor.
I think there's something innately wrong about most people to inspire alien curiousity.

Poets you are not

In the dead of night
A shimmewin' wight
Gweem of a bwade
And dah devew was paid
When dah axe comes down
A chiwin' sound
Steel hits da head
Anothaw wabbit's dead
I'm a wabbit swayer
A guitaw pwayaw
With a nasty habbit

Kill dah wabbit!!! (hah hah hah)
AhhhaahooOhhh

I'm a mean mistweetah
A wabbit feastah
And I pwedict
A bwoody Eastaw
A scuwowing shadow
And dah shadow was dis wabbit
And dah night air echoes
Kill dah wabbit!!!
Kill dah wabbit!!!

we will soon be arrested
george does not sing well
