• Bad Haiku! (Or Is That #badhaiku ?)

    According to Borders, yesterday was “Bad Poetry Day.” On their Twitter feed, they asked for people to send in their bad haiku. And as I have an occasional knack [1] for writing bad poetry, I tossed some submissions their way. (I’ve also included a few responses, indicated by username.)

    Five syllables and
    seven syllables and then
    HAIKU! … gesundheit

    Who writes a haiku
    only to pimp their website
    go to gneech.com

    (And since traditional haiku usually is about or at least references nature…)

    Rain rain rain rain rain
    Rain rain rain rain rain rain rain
    Rain rain rain rain rain

    Twittering haikus
    there are so many now, that
    Oh no! The Fail Whale!

    (Starhound joins in…)

    Look there at @the_gneech
    Tweeting haikus on the net
    He is a bit odd

    (Rebelsheart calls me out on Twitterfail…)

    just had to tempt fate
    posted prose excessively
    @the_gneech broke twitter

    (JadedFox @ed this one my way…)

    Start the day with rock
    loud drums and guitars wailing
    better than coffee!

    (Heatherzundel finishes me off…)

    Oh wow – so in love
    it’s hard to write bad haikus
    rock on tweet fail whale.

    A fun time was had by all. 🙂
