haiku

haiku is a japanese verse form that relies on brevity and simplicity to convey its message. it is usually three lines of five, seven, and five syllables.

i like haiku.  i especially like bad haiku. this is the difference between good haiku and bad haiku:  good haiku is fine wine-tasting, breathing in fragrance, aroma, experiencing subtle flavours. bad haiku is  drinking beer with indian food, burping, tasting food again.

examples of bad haiku:

slippery pasta
broccoli, pepper, garlic
we ate, we had gas

Too much cookie dough
I ate several tubes full
Now I cannot poop
