I Feel a Haiku Coming On

Dear Geneva folks, I smell springtime in the air, It's haiku season.

I'm sure you're busy at work and all. But so am I. I have a strict schedule of eating, lying around, scratching myself, engaging in higher education at DePaw University, walking my pet humans, and did I mention scratching myself?

Anyway, you're busy, but you can take a minute or two from working on that awful PowerPoint presentation or that paperwork that's stacking on your desk to write a haiku, can't you?

Here's how you do it:

  • Five syllables in the first line,
  • Seven syllables in the second line,
  • Five syllables in the third line.

Here are five by me, AJ Nagel.

 

(See attached photo that goes with the first one.)

There's a cliche here,
I don't know what it might be,
Some privacy please.

Fox in Good Templar,
To me he smells like Old Spice,
MUST TEAR HIM TO SHREDS!

Master mows the lawn,
Two times a week in springtime,
What is he thinking?

While licking myself,
I tasted that fish I rolled in,
Why humans like sushi?

I am a dog but,
I feel a haiku coming,
Blame Masaoka

AJ, I should be working - but this is more fun!!! Tails frantic wagging Much whining, crying, yipping Humans finally home Four-legged siblings Chasing all over the house Utter chaos reigns
