  • New! – Your Midweek Apropos of Nothing Haikus

    Posted by Jonathan on August 14th, 2013 (All posts by )

    Stupid green features
    Mindlessly pause computer
    Just when you need it


    Had a profound thought
    But forgot to write it down
    Now it’s gone, dammit


    They’re modern women
    And yet they still expect you
    To pick up the check


    Feeling like a cork
    Cast adrift on life’s ocean
    Age does that to you


    It’s an absurd world
    Your hovercraft full of eels
    My dog with no nose

      Sunny summer’s morn
      Bright on Mountain Ash’s fruit
      Autumn comes apace.

    2. Jezzy Says:

      I still expect you to open the door for me
      You pick up the check
      and I will pay the tip

    3. Lexington Green Says:

      too bad, modern gal
      this is the world you wanted
      we’re splitting the check

    4. Dan from Madison Says:

      Tons of lovely hay
      Sheltered, stacked to the rafters
      No cycling this week

    5. Jezzy Says:

      If we are splitting the Check
      I am driving
      and you’re not complaining

    6. Lexington Green Says:

      Jezzy, the syllables per line go 5/7/5.

      Until you get that straight, you can’t have the car keys.

    7. dearieme Says:

      Trees toss in the wind
      “Like sails” says fool; I reply
      “But going nowhere”.

    8. Ralf Goergens Says:

      “I may be a cad,
      not fit to marry, but still,
      I got your cherry.”

      I should have kept that to myself, once her family catches up with me, it turns into

      “When hung by the neck,
      my collar becomes tight and
      my ass grows so heavy.”
