Haiku? Hiya!

The way into a woman’s good graces, we know,is through her heart… but short of invasive surgery, how does one get to a woman’s heart? Poetry. The original poem has much to offer, especially considering how freakishly easy it is to write one. Most forms of poetry require no effort whatsoever, but the easiest of them all is the Haiku. Syllables: 5-7-5. String them together, and say “arigato” to our Japanese friends for their efficiency in getting you into the promised land.

Laser Tag
light cuts through the smoke
where is my foe now? Only
his corn dog remains

Finer Wear
two button pinstripe
classic or legendary?
depends on necktie

High Five
one two three four five
raise each one high in the air
cut me some skin, bro

wingman O wingman
please save me from the fatties
it’s your sworn duty
