Haiku News! A Round Up Of The Weekly News & Commentary in Haikus

Hello everyone.

Who would like something different for a Saturday evening?

(No! Not that! I’m not climbing into a cake for you no matter how much you are willing to pay me. And I really like cake but there are some things a man just won’t do to pay the bills.)

Where the hell was I? Oh yes, on with the show!

May I present to you all, a Weekly News Round Up & Commentary made up entirely of haikus!

(If you don’t know what haikus are then I suggest you hurry up and find out before all our teas and coffees get cold – hurry up, chop chop! Here’s a handy guide for you:-

Wikipedia – Haiku

    1. Nice attempt DiAnne
      But you’re one short on this line
      And also this one

      There are tricks to it
      Combining you are and you’re
      Plus finger counting

      Once I find rhythm
      The flow just keeps on coming
      And I go with it 😉


      1. Yep. Too easy. 🙂 It gets to be “fun” (not) when you find that the way a word is pronounced in one part of the English speaking world (celestial for example) is not the way it’s pronounced in another, giving it an extra syllable.
