haiku wednesday - May 14, 2008

This week's words are
average
neck
scratch

note: according to dictionary.reference.com, the word "average" has two or three syllables. I use the two-syllable pronunciation. With that in mind, here are my weekly Wednesday haiku with the words provided by bone. (Thanks, bone!)



crane my neck to see
I can't read his chicken scratch
one more average grade


red neck, white tank top
belch, scratch privates, snort, grunt, wink
just your average man


fingernails scratch neck
it must have been great for you
no, it was average

Very fun. I like these.

I love the third

The 2nd made me laugh and gloat (because I don't do/have all of these things, just a few), the 3rd one is my favorite because it's suggestive of a story.

The 2nd is hilarious!! Great job!

Great haiku's. I agree with Paisley- I married the second one - minus the tank top.

Thanks, everyone! It's late, but I'll try to drop by your 3WWs to see what else came from bone's words this week.

These are a riot! As a teacher that first one spoke to me but the other two tickled my funny bone.
