The tiny keyboard
Still makes enough of a sound
To distract, bastard
The future of his children
Never once looks up
A child on a swing
Daddy, daddy, higher please
But he is texting
Can I help you sir?
Excuse me, can I help you?
Sir? Can I help you?
All businessman types
Emailing just like at work
But here they are drunk
Five Haikus About People and Their Frickin’ BlackBerrys
When and where will the public reading of these be?
Presidential Records Act
Will he quit it?
Don’t know the answer
Give me a sec, my phone knows
I cannot not ask
But which is holy
And which only texting
Tires screeching, smoking
Death avoided by an inch
Dude never noticed
Comments by Dummies
Hope I write a REAL Haiku
Brian and Jules know
Yeah I noticed that too, but I didn’t want to ruin their thrill of posting a comment on a well-read website of satirical humor. Let them haiku incorrectly and live it up. ;)
Well if it bugs you that much, let me set things right:
No MORE e-mailing
Presidential Records Act
Will he GIVE IT UP?
Heads bowed IN PRAYER
But which is TRULY holy
And which JUST texting?
iPhone and PEDESTRIAN are already in proper haiku format, so my work here is done. No no, no need to thank me. I’m just here to be a blessing. *smarmy smile
I was going to call out the 5-7-5 rule and how some of the posted haikus are wrong. But then I would have had to point out that Brian got the first line of THE PARK wrong. And I’m not the king of guy who would do a thing like that.
That does it, I’m going to deconstruct Delgo.
Now I’ve done it. Well, as long as you buy tickets you can do whatever you want.
Just keep in mind I wasn’t the only writer. So anything you don’t like, that was someone else.
This is amazing.
…and how many comments were sent in from blackberrys?
I once wrote an email on a blackberry. It took forever, I barely got it into my laptop and it took forever to get the juice off the dvd slot. On another note, I have a brother-in-law called cuan whom we call Cu (pronounced Coo) so, if you’re reading this,
No wonder I flunked English and math! I don’t know what a haiku is and I can’t count. I feel like an idiot.
Thanks Steve and Isaac. It would have been easier to come up with it using more syllables.
Hey I don’t care. I was just trying to help Steve out. It seemed to bother him that some were not in the traditional haiku format.
These are fantastic.
But I’m holding out for the dirty Google phone limericks.
Let’s get an unabridged rhyming dictionary open to ‘android’ in here, stat.
Thanks Isaac. Steve was perfectly correct. I didn’t bother to Wiki haiku to get the syllable structure. I’ll claim artistic licence or maybe strange Canadian pronunciation. Either way what you changed it to was better that what I slapped in.
Artistic license won’t work cause it was a haiku. Go with the strange Canadian pronunciation, they can never call you down on that one unless they have lived in your particular province for a long time. :D
