You Can Haiku -- Adam Slade

Words put in order
Can delight, repulse, arouse,
or make my head hurt.

*****

"Melanie Hooyen-
ga Avila" takes up half
a bloody haiku.

*****

Editing, it's like
Taking a jigsaw apart
Then reconstructing

*****

Saying goodbye - it's
Harder then saying hello
On the first meeting.

*****

A big cup of tea
is akin to floating through
heaven in warm slacks.

*****

Crossbows make ping pong
ten times more fun, and fifty
eight times more lethal

*****

Sex and drugs and rock.
No roll, as that didn't fit
The haiku format.

*****

My muse has black wings,
they are used to cool my brain.
Also, deflect bullets.

*****

Dogs have two desires:
Feline extermination,
and tummy tickles.

*****

My dog Ollie wrote
this haiku, he believes that
the form can-- SQUIRREL!!!

Yay! I am famous!
Now, when do the cars and money
arrive? Should I wait in?

Melanie Avila said...

Perhaps you should wait
Until another post, or
Two. That's just a thought.

Adam said...

Bah, you mean I must
work hard to attain my fame?
That sucks, Hoo, it sucks.


:-D

Thank you, JLC!
Nothing beats a cup of tea,
excepting two cups.
