Haiku'd

Haiku are easy:
A line of five syllables,
Then seven, then five.

You can write them quite
Easily, so long as you
Count the syllables.

If you are a bit
Clever, you can write a whole
Lot of them quickly.

Haiku are often
About nature: seasons and
Animals and stuff.

However, these are
Not. These are just written for
A mere blog posting.

They are not about
Nature. Instead, they just make
Meta-references

To me, the blogger,
And to the posting process.
No room for nature.

I once wrote many
Haiku. So, so many. Then
I found five dollars.

  1. Most good haiku have each line as a single subject or thought. It's not tricky to write haiku by the book, but it certainly is to write them the way that you're supposed to.
