Multiplex Haiku III

I smell some old feet
and something that may be pee.
Please pass the popcorn.

the things I was avoiding
and I'm so sleepy.

Haiku is boring
Limericks are much more fun
Even dirty ones

(curtesy of a friend of mine)

There once was a man
From Peru whose limericks
Looked like haiku - he

Said with a laugh, "I
Cut them in half; the pay is
Much better for two."

StarLisa's is awesome! Combining two types reminds me of the palindrome haiku from KoL:

Oh, evil Satan
Oscillate my metallic
Sonatas live. Ho!

for my daily fix.

Sorry about that
Treason, my aim isn't good
Excedrin don't work.

Ibuprofen and
tramadol are my friends, yes!
Thank you, ketchupqueen!

X-ray showed my leg
No apparent problems shown
It still hurts like hell

MRI showed bulge
Sacro-lumbar disc, they say
Annular tear, too

Got an allergy
Ibubrofen gives me hives
Tramadol instead

Doesn't do a thing
T3 does, but knocks me out
Zonked for half a day

Lawyers have the case
It's an elevator joke
"Otis going down".

starLisa's leg hurts
But I didn't get the joke
about the Otis

Ibuprofen rocks
I'm sorry you can't use it
How about Aleve?

Haikus are weïrd,
I don't see the god-damned point
Of playing the game;

If I had an option
Of writing one with my choice
Of meter and rhyme -

I'd choose it right there,
And not play in this wrechéd
Silly game of yours.

Otis was on site
Mine was not the first that day
Gonna make them pay

Negligence for sure
Didn't even post a sign
Three weeks of pain sux

I can't use Aleve
It is in the same family
I'll have to make do

Haiku is easy
Pantoum is more challenging
Try it and you'll see.

Haiku distracts me
The alternative is work
Not sure which is worse

Enough with haikus!
Let's try limericks instead
I'll go start a thread

Hatrackian haiku
turns to taunting Tante but
no Tante's taunting.

I don't get you, Tante,
The irony was stated
But you missed it then:

You see, after all,
I played in this little game
Although I'm no fan;

So give me a break,
I was being mature-like
A great haiku-mensch.

Jon Boy is upset
at the length of these haikus.
We tremble in fear!

I just quit my job,
(Well, one of them, anyway),
And now I can breathe.

A poem must have
a "kigo" or season word
to be a haiku.

I'm pretty sure it was the Japanese who made up the rules for haikus. I'm just the messenger.

Jon Boy picks to much.
Winter, there is a season
Hatracker Dobbie.

That haiku was bad,
but it's the best I could do
on such short notice.

These haikus are weird:
I think they lose much meaning
When not in Japanese.
