Bad Haiku! (Or Is That #badhaiku ?)

Posted by

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

(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. :)
