Perpetually Peeved

Haiku! Gesundheit.

This spam comment has been sitting in my filter for a couple of days now.  I don’t have the heart to delete it.  It’s just absolutely begging for someone to do something creative with it. 

I am not that person.

Unlike a myriad other people who want to write drivel and pass it off as poetry,  (gag), I will not fool myself into thinking that the ability to count syllables makes me a poet.  However, I will enjoy laughing at you fools trying to make haikus out of the following words:

Because, I’ve had a bad week and need a laugh.  You’ll humor me, no?  Those that do will be rewarded with an extra helping of snark this afternoon.

{A reminder about the American version of haiku format – three lines, 5 syllables first line, 7 syllables second line, 5 syllables third line.  And, don’t go trying to show off and do it the right (Japanese) way.  You’ll just confuse us lowly-brained folk.}

Here’s my submission for the Nobel Prize in Literature:

leadership, far cry

assess system carefully

appoint lady now

Hmm… repeat after me, “5, 7, 5” Although, I appreciate the effort. And the client head canning!

Comment by perpetuallypeeved

OK, I’ll try again. One question: What is a syllable?

Comment by shoutabyss

ahem….(did I get your attention clearing my throat?)

town population
engineering accident
recognize big head?

I don’t know if punctuation is allowed in a Haiku, but why not!

How’d I do?

Comment by carldagostino

C-, I expected more out of you Carl. I envisioned you actually thinking in haikus.

Comment by perpetuallypeeved


No fair. Carl always wins.

Equal wage? Far cry.
Should carefully assess work.
Approve big raise now.

…or I’m leaving.
Perhaps a little insight on my work frustrations right now! 🙂
