Blog Political haiku thread



Commonly, haiku is a form of poetry which uses 17 syllables over three lines.

The first line has 5 syllables.
The second has 7
The third has 5

The logic being that because it is necessary to reflect a little more deeply than usual before we can express ourselves in this heavily restricted manner
the resultant output tends to be more creative in it's use of language, more dense and profound conceptually, and more aesthetically pleasing as a result.
Well that's the theory anyway. I'm sure we can manage to bollix it up well and truly!! :p

However it might be fun to try anyway.

Instead of the usual lazy tropes that "the government is shit" etc, lets up the cultural ante a little.
Lets insult the bastards through the medium of Haiku! :ROFLMAO:

I'm pretty crap at this but I'll get the ball rolling....

Hogan mocks the law
"it's only for little folk"

last laugh is on him

Dammit - I even counted them on my fingers.

Must be that the pinkie is still numb from the last surgery - edit coming up (I know I have a syllable handy here in my pocket somewhere)

Anyway:

Taps flow at Bathhouse
Howls of outrage if closed
beer stales in pub lines


edit: OP: good effort but again Howls is just the one syllable! :(
try "if they're closed" perhaps?
