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....

They talk about levels 6
It's just a mish-mash to me 7
I've done better stickin' with level care-free 11

Its 5 - 7 - 5
That's a terrible effort
Shitty haiku blues
:p




Edit: Ach, I screwed up the syllables. I'll do better next time.
