Haiku Ca Choo

If you know my blog at all, you know I ain’t down with the haiku. There’s a reason for that, and it’s rather simple. I’m shit for when it comes to budgeting my words. When it comes to thoughts put to paper, I spend more than a Washington bureaucrat after a three Martini breakfast.

That’s why my attempts at poetry and haiku are (unintentionally) hilarious. I don’t dig on greeting cards, I have nothing to talk about on Twitter and I cannot for the life of me figure out how the whole 5 to 7 to 5 thing makes any sense. But . . . Imma try a haiku on for size since it’s Tuesday. And as far as horoscopes are concerned, I’ve given Taurus enough beatings. (Gemini? You’re in my batter’s box).

Without further to do, a haiku.

  1. Bwahaha. You’re pretty dang good at Haiku, Marc. Trust me. Bt I’m with you, those limited poetry or word count challenges…definitely not my jam. Then again, I was always rather more fond of honey than that icky grapey stuff. 🀒

    • I tried out one of those syrupy, overpriced caramel frappes with sea salt and extra caramel drizzle. It was really good, but let’s face it . . it was dessert. No coffee involved.
