There once was a troper, it's said
Who wasn't quite right in the head
Told to write a haiku
He knew not what to do
And wrote down a limerick instead
This format is Japanese
Do not eat the fish.
One two three four five six sept.
One two three four five.
I believe it's supposed to be
Six, eight, and six. Correct?
I came upon a frightful scary sight.
A page not made for meter sweet as love—
Iambic, it is called, pentameter,
Far greater than Haiku, I say, for lo!
Haiku is far too short for epic tales.
Long-suffering Odysseus once sailed
Across the wine-dark sea back to his home.
This meter I am writing in right now
Could tell a tale like that no problem, but
Haiku just fails at being poetry.
->—Anonymous I can't believe you!
I defy you to show me
Any "wine-dark sea"!
Anything cool to say here,
But I like Swiss cheese.
— Snowsky Hello.
Wait... this isn't laconic?
I hate poetry!
The worst part about this is
It's a little hot.
