Official Archinect Haiku Thread


My friends, remember the good old days on Archinect where our beloved haiku thread grew to an incredible length?

We need a new one here, and this is it. I won't be satisfied until virtually ever topic known to man has been covered in eloquent 5-7-5 format. Yah, that's right, I expect to see no less than 825 replies by 5: p.m. Friday September 23.

Just as a reminder, some of the more popular topics in the world today that you may write a haiku about include:

Sex, money, cars, landscaping, working, comedy, Internets, hurricanes, Bush hating, John Roberts, painting, office pranks, motorcycle wheelies that seem to last forever, problems sending email, portfilios, moronic professors, porcupines, and silk panties.

Let the games begin!

circling the park watched by
joggers in nylon

A Center for Ants?

hello product rep
pretty girl that talks to me
but your tiles stink

Sep 22, 05 3:44 pm  · 

blood-sucking leeches
have invaded my nostrils
at first it tickles

but then I'm in shock
I feel them crawling higher
I start to feel sick

they're at the door now
seeking entry to my brain
cannot hold them off

suddenly it starts
I feel a warm liquid flow
as my eyes squint shut

it passes my lips
as my tongue investigates
fears are realized

the leeches have found
an artery to call home
and I am helpless

under their control
my nervous system reacts
I am now in shock

blood pressure races
it won't be much longer now
cannot hold them off

frontal lobe cries out
I am fading, fading fast
I am, I am, dead

Sep 22, 05 3:48 pm  ·

"What's the latest craze?"
your mom said, curious like,
as dinner was served.

"Can't really say, mom."
"But we do use clean needles,"
you said with a grin.

"Homemade tats? No!"
she screamed, slamming a plate down.
"What's wrong with you son?"

"Uh, no, that's not right,"
you said, confused as ever.
"We're shooting up crack."
