Limerick is most
Certainly three syllables
Though two sounds alright

I had a feeling
My choice of "lim-rick" might
spark a small debate

It's true, though. I do
say it with two syllables
and not "lim-er-ick."

Republican votes
in my red state of Georgia
favored Huckabee

But the Democrats
Clearly favored Obama
over Hillary

I think you goofed there
"My choice of 'lim-rick' might" is
One syllable short

The only reason
I voted Republican
Was Ron Paul's campaign

Libertarian
But not an LP joker
What else could I do?

Here, fixed it for you:
"That my choice of 'lim-rick' might"
Any improvement?

Of course you are right
Obviously my fingers
don't know how to count

Made the same mistake
once in this thread already.
Think I should give up?

(And no, the mistake
was not in the quoted line
but elsewhere on page.)

(oh, and Huckabee does rhyme
with Hillary, doesn't it?
Unintentional.)

Very nice.

And all the multi-stanza haikus are an abomination. And to quote The Tick: "You call that a haiku?! He's just counting syllables!"

A noble occupation,
Making strangers laugh.
