Tired--one syllable or two?
I stop to recount.

Five plus five is ten.
Seven plus seven, fourteen.
This haiku; pointless.

It's tire with two. I've only heard it that way. It's not my accent.

Pronunciation. Did you learn to read by sight? Say it aloud, now.

It's not the counting -

Haiku's not for everyone -

Too complicated.

I agree with the

Haiku can be hard.

The plot is less clear. The issue is location. Where did Nantucket?

Haikus are better
When written by people like
Matsuo Basho.

Haiku- not my thing.
I much prefer to do prose.
But when that fails me...?

Long day, hyper child
Didn't go to brother's thing
Will watch video

Little brother plays
A drum solo that maybe
Good for youtubing

Should be writing but
I am procrastinating
Baby sleeps at last

Sitting at work bored
My mind's about to shut down
Please keep me awake

*Edit to correct
spelling of "please", though "pleas" might
have been funnier.

From a high school teacher:

Summer is so close.
Children yearn for their freedom.
Teachers want it more.

And for the record, I loved this one...
