Now all of us are confused
Will our arms still flail?

What project, pray tell?
I'd like to flail my arms, too!
Just need a reason.
"Flat beer or a lumpy mattress. Take your pick."
"I'd prefer a flat mattress."

The name is all wrong.
That's what's in need of flailing.
Get your movement on.

I don't really care.
I learned this form as "Haiku".

Guys, I'm confused now.
What the hell is going on?
HOW DO I SHOT WEB.

This gets easier
Each time I write a haiku.
Last lines are tough, still.

Iron Chef: Japan.
It's pretty rad, don' cha know.
Itadakimasu!

I know that last one doesn't technically work. But with the way most natural speakers say it, the U on the end might as well not even exist.

Edit: I've been informed that it's a trait common to male speakers. So, if you think I'm a woman, the haiku won't work. If you think I'm a man, it works.

Haiku, Senryū
Neither based on syllables
Count on or mora

Haiku start with five
Seven in the second line
Finish with five more

Senryū not strict
Up to seventeen, it's true
But could be less

English has no on
So use best equivalent
Syllables are fine

Also, a Haiku

I like these Haikus
But sometimes they make no sense.

That may be so, but
it doesn't mean you should take
advantage of it.

Also, a necro
of less than one month isn't
terribly bad, right?

This haiku is bad.
It contains nothing of worth.
You should not read it.

Despite my advice
You read that one, didn't you?
Don't read this one though.

Now look what you've done.
Can't you follow instructions?
I'm ending this now.

I recognize your Haikus
They're from the Pythons

The first is simply
The Spanish Inquisition
And then the Cheese Shop

So what's my reward?
I finished your objectives...
Maybe some ponies?

Thats crazy because I had a buffalo chicken pizza for dinner and I've never heard of it before my job. Even there, its normal hot wing sauce unless you ask for otherwise.
