Thanks Peter for the critique. I agree it breaks down a bit, but I seldom redo poems. This one I may.

I love your haiku, they are right on the mark. :)

Oh this flipping makes me ill. I wrote a post about it the other day, how I'm sooo sick of hearing about Barry Bonds and the idea that someday kids are going to look up to him and hello, Hank Aaron owes him NOTHING.

Good job. Wish I could write haiku.

I love the way haikus force you to express things in so few words. You've done this very well.
