My best friend and I
Used to do this all the time
We had so much fun.

Afterwards we saw
Everything read in haiku
Couldn't stop for days.

I am really glad
To see this done somewhere else!
I can play again!

But I think you miss the point
Of a haiku thread.

Five, seven, and five
Syllables make up haiku
And any posts here.

Somehow, I had hoped

Binary and not.

Still, I say, it was
Worth it, since I got to go

Very funny, Noc.
Then again, you too forgot
To post in haiku.

Today, I have learned
That "Karma" is a great song
I'd have never known

If not for YouTube,
And an acoustic cover
Done by some male fan.

It made the lyrics
So much easier to hear
And now I'm in love.

Of course, I think that
would be better posted in
Another topic...

Who cares if you suck?
You can only get better,
And that's half the fun!

Plus, it's good when bored.
Like now, nothing on TV,
No one to play with.

Wish I could go out
But it's thunderstorming now.
Curse you, weather gods!

So, turn to haiku.
Throw all grammar far away
And just have some fun!

I'd thought about "smile."
That and a similar word
Seem transsyllabic.

The other odd word,
I cannot remember it.
I'll reread the thread.

The other odd word.
I think that it was "shire,"
Or maybe just "shire."

I think Gandalf says
"Shire" with two syllables,
But one sounds right, too.

I want to make more!
More haikus about these words.

Funnily enough,
I was just thinking about
The name "Cheshire".

"-shire" and "smile"
I pronounce two syllables
Though they could be one...

Maybe it's all words
With that "i" sound ending them
That cause so much grief...

And now, I lament
How badly wisdom teeth hurt
When they come in wrong

Oh, for a dentist
I would give all of the world.
For insurance, too.

Get these fuckers out,
Live on applesauce all day,
Never hurt again.

The price of your smile:
A dentist to maintain it.
So very painful.

I forget before
To make bad grammar poem.
-- Oh, that was the word!

I thought that "poem"
could be just one syllable.
Perhaps I was drunk.

Most obviously
"Poem" is two syllables.
I must have been drunk!

A dictionary
Makes this claim of "shire" and "smile:"
Monosyllabic.

Bad grammar haiku!
I can has lolcat poem.
Please show me the it.

Who cares of my smile?
My teeth are already bad.
It's the pain that counts!

Day and night, my jaw
Throbs with pain of teeth gone wrong.
Motrin doesn't help.

Plus, I rarely smile...
Don't have much to grin about
Since I hate my life.

And wait, since when is
"Poem" said with two syllables?
What a load of crock...

Though I have to say
Your lolcat poem made me laugh.
Thank you very much.

I did not notice
That his poem was wrong in form
Until you said so.

I was too amused
By the word he said, "Sheeple".
To notice the wrong.
