Here it is folks, the dreaded haiku page. Since the old thread didn't make it, along with most of jimmie_d's stuff (waah!!!), I've decided to start this one. Have fun!

This first one is dedicated to whitey...

It's "High School Madness"
Starring Porgie and Mudhead
Pass Me The Pliers

Sorry, jimmie_d.

What's with these Haikus?
Sounds like a lot of bother
Over nothing much.

From demented minds

"Jimmy Carl Black sez" sounds like five syllables to me. Anyway, Haikus do not strictly have to have 5-7-5 syllables. Many Haikus are written using 5-5-5 and other combinations. There are actually a very large number of Haiku rules and some of them are contradictory.

Haikus use nature
To reveal truths about life
Like wind, it can blow
