In the interest of spurring discussion and usage of these boards, I encourage folks to compose traditional (5/7/5) haikus related directly or indirectly to FBF and/or his works.

If anyone is up for this, please post your efforts in this thread.

I have yet to attempt any myself, but will add mine when complete.

Ready?

Go.

Remember, a traditional haiku is three lines, with the first line 5, the second line 7 and the third line 5.

That's syllables, not words.

Rhyming is not a requirement in any way...

Yes, you have to pronounce the "Hello" in my haiku as a one syllable word, like "H'llo.."

Here's what I have so far.

V1.

First, cover your ears
But then give your head a shake
Feel your glutes burning

V2.

First, clobber your ears
But then glib your head a shake
Feel your glutes burning

I can do better.
