Underpaid I am.
'Intern' carries no respect.
Should have been waitress.

Model built from foam,
Ransacked by pack of gnomes who,
Destroyed my scale home

Haiku is a mode of Japanese poetry, the late 19th century revision by Masaoka Shiki of the older hokku, the opening verse of a linked verse form, haikai no renga. The traditional hokku consisted of a pattern of approximately 5, 7, and 5 morae, phonetic units which only partially correspond to the syllables of languages such as English. It also contains a special season word (the kigo) representative of the season in which the renga is set, or a reference to the natural world.

Vado judging from Chili's remark regarding the definition it would be spurious for a haiku to be in English. However to add clarity to it all, a hokku is only the beginning line (as stated of 5 morae) and exists in other traditional Japanese linked poetry. "hok" meaning opening or first & "ku" meaning stanza
