Following the other rodents over the cliff.

Why do we do this?
Seems broken and so silly,
this written haiku.

Maybe it is like
chasing pixels with pixels,
relaxing and fun.

But fun with structure
rules confining all the words
like raid D.K.P.

Fun for a short while,
irritation if long term.
Sigh, back to work, bye.

in seventeen syllables
is very diffic


My brother came up with:

seventeen terse words
do not fully express my
deep irritation

Haikus are easy
But sometimes they don't make sense.
