Women too, I'd say.

That is likely true;
(That's why I haven't played yet--
I'd get sucked in, too!)

Sorry for you, Meg,
No-one earns such fate like this,
Even more so you!

EDIT:

Didn't see Page Four,
And so my comment's faulty,
Take't in good spirit.

So we all gave up.

Don't you flatter me.

By the way, I liked
"Bullshit, bullshit, crap" Haiku.
It made me laugh hard.

Mine eyes have seen the
Glory of the coming of
The Lord (oh, yeah, sure!) -

He is trampling out
Vintage where the grapes of wrath
Are stored (grapes galore!);

He hath loosed the fate-
-ful lightning of his ter-
-rible swift sword (wow!),

His truth is marching
On (not off. Get that, you twit,
His truth on marches now).

Hey --mine had that "seasonal reference" thing. And if cold symptoms aren't a natural phenomena, then I don't know what is. [Frown] (still feeling yucky)

It seems that quid has
ever so many headaches.
Have you seen a Doc?

My poetry is
so wrong and wooden, I fear.
Sterling, I have fun!

I do not care if
my poetry sounds silly.
I like to write it.

Please take no offense
I am only poking fun
Poet, I am not

English is a tongue
That was not made for haiku
All sound slightly off

Up too late again,
I can't seem to fall asleep.
Must be computer.

I cheat on haiku,
Throw away words that don't fit.
Sound like "No english"

Tante, she always
surprises me with her wit
and posting power.

Tante's haikus are
always good, sometimes funny
that one was pretty.

Yellow buses fill
with gigglegirls, posingboys,
and soggy lunches.

Heavy footed boys
trudge to school in the morning
fly so lightly home.

Families sleep in
rickety shacks behind their

I hope Tante has
a big million dollar home
because I sure don't

[Big Grin]

The rickety shack
resembles my home more than
anything else does

I exaggerate
just so I can write haiku
alarmingly bad
