Write a trite haiku
The more banal, the better
Talk out of your ass

Converse, if inclined
Riff on previous posters
Tease a few good friends

You're a rogue poet
Know that the only rule is:
Make it a haiku

Yay! I love Haiku
The bestest poetry form
For lazy writers

There are dried mint leaves
Welded to my red tea mug
Perhaps I'll wash it

I'm eating cupcakes
My butt is made of cupcakes
My soul will follow

(Soul made of cupcakes
sounds like a blessing, but no--
Empty calories. :D )

I so want to know
How long has this bit of cake
Been stuck in my teeth?

There once was a man from.
Oops. Lim'rick. My bad. Wrong thread.
Need to start over.

So now they're saying
Heart-healthy margarine is
Bad for you too (http://life.nationalpost.com/2013/01/23/excessive-omega-fatty-acids-may-make-heart-health-worse-not-better-b-c-researchers/)

I don't wanna go to work
Must watch more Dexter

Leaving work right now
for school is not something
I want to do, sigh.

There are days I wonder
If perhaps I shou--
Ooh, shiny thing!





I'm never sure if I'm counting right...

I need a definition
I google HAIKU

Downstairs, laundry waits
When "Innuendo" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cpys1c3jCNs) is done
I might -- nah, next song!

I tried to write a
Haiku, but couldn't. So I
started a thread, instead.

Second thoughts, often,
Are not nearly as happy
As the first ones. Shit.

I just realized
Grandpa didn't watch Hee-Haw
For country humor

buz
02-05-2013, 06:46 AM
Now I'm wondering...
Why did he watch Hee Haw, then?
(I haven't seen it...)

Found my lost jerky
Like Christmas in my pocket
I'm less hungry now

Young, blonde and nubile
Goldie Hawn was on Hee-Haw
In very short shorts

Misty Rowe, the She
who made me endure all the
lame jokes for cheap thrills

Ah, I should have guessed. :D
Animal magnetism
Is often the "why"...

Roy Clark provided
Some pretty damn fine music
for non-country fans

Sinuses beg me
to lie back down on the couch
More drugs and then yes

Decaf in wrong pot
Some have nervous energy

Staring at sinkface
I start to think maybe he looks
Sexually piqued.

Over there, across
the room, there might be a tub,
A saucy faucet,

Maybe a drainspout,
Looking all lascivious,
Gets nekkid, makes eyes...

Because when sinkface
Gets that feeling, he requires
Sexual healing

archerjoe

Sigmund Freud would say
Archerjoe's haiku topics
very revealing

Sloppy joe and fries
Today's special, to go
White shirt, not so much

Dreity

The time that stretches
Between me and my last Joe
Is too long (Sweet Joe...)

Four people, one house
Burgers, barbecue, all good
Why no love for Joe?

kenthepen

Sloppy is the man
who leaves unfulfilled hearty
appetites. Hunger

Oh, go the fuck home
The students don't need you now
And you're done marking

Need to be needed

Some guy slams on brakes
Right in front of me, oh balls,
Nearly shat myself.

Swerved into turn lane
In order to avoid death
And there, I can see:

The brakeslam was caused
By some guy from the turn lane
Cutting into my lane

The one I almost
Just died in. What a poopdouche.
And what a skidmark...

Buzhidao's poem--
Exquisite and genius.
Puts my crap to shame

Resurrections of old threads
Bah! Back to the top

Early for meeting
Parking lot surfing scanning
Open ISP?

Look through list for choice
FBI Surveillance van
Might be a bad pick

I slave in the canyons 'tween
Midterm marking sucks

In quiet darkness
ferrets creep under blankets
to nibble your toes

Come morning I wake
frown at my shivering feet
socks have been stolen

Not under the bed
not behind the big dresser
oh, where are my socks?

Cute chubby furries
asleep in the bottom drawer
in a nest of socks

Slowly walk away
cold feet so unimportant
babies are sleeping.

Julianne's opus
Stirs me to great, wrenching tears
Of hot self-loathing

Fucking ferrets, man
Her poem's about damn ferrets.
And it's brilliant

Walking with Kharma
People say "he's a big dog!"
Kharma is a bitch.

lighthearted banter
can't cover undercurrents
senseless violence

It's a long story
Overly personal too
You don't want to know

kenthepen
02-12-2013, 08:32 AM
I want you to know
to understand me and it
but I can't tell you

I don't really know
Whatsoever went on here
oh look there's a tree

All through the night.

Billy the cat sleeps
My love, Brian, sleeps also
House full of snoring.

I'm trying to write
In a room full of echos
Please wake the hell up!

Chicken noodle soup,
Oily in my mouth,
Spells nekcihc backwards.

jjdebenedictis

"Nekcihc" is pronounced
"Nake' cheek" and refers to your
Bared writer support

Writers don't need feet
Just ass-cheeks and fast fingers
And heads full of life

Rat hungry? Rat eats.
Who are we to question our

Sugar crash coming

On Mountain Dew and coffee

An empty bottle
That once contained Corona
Through my back windshield.

Poor little red car
Weep not because of drunk jerk
Glass man is coming.

The glass man is here!
How quickly he fixes it.
Glue must dry one hour.

Drunk Derby jackass
Can’t defeat little red car
With glass coverage.
