haiku wednesday - April 9, 2008

A momentary respite from The Unlucky Twenty-Six, a saga of twenty-six unlucky children that is being composed piece by piece throughout National Poetry Month. Today's episode will feature Elgin. Previous episodes included Annie, Bart, Charlie, and Donna.

This week's words are
funny
remember
theater




Pee Wee was funny
remember the theater?
was caught red-handed


I remember you
yelled "fire" in the theater
you're not funny, dude


was the play funny?
remember, Missus Lincoln
you like theater

The second and third really did something to me

Linda Jacobs said...

Sherry/Cherie said...

Lucy said...

Jane--thank you for the link!

pia... I'm a little worried what they did to you. Are you all right?

glad they brought some chuckles and smiles. that's all I really set out to do with these since I know I'll never get a real haiku written. But that doesn't worry me much. A friend who is really, really into real haiku once told me about a haiku master who was quoted as saying that if he wrote only three real haiku in his life, he would die happy.

Perfect - still laughing!

great haikus, great use of the 3ww words, as usual very entertaining

pjd said...

tammy, kat, lissa, & tumble--I'm glad you liked them. I thought this week we'd see a dearth of diversity in the approaches to the prompt, but there has been some creative work out there. It's been fun to see the different approaches.

Awww, man, those are all just a touch evil this week :)
