    The Haiku Thread

    Welcome.

    Two revelations have come from CDM's latest thread. Firstly, we have learnt that toasted sandwiches are better than your usual garden variety vomitous vegetarian fare (cold meats and leftovers excepted). Secondly, we need a haiku thread. So, here we will have fun writing haiku about anything, hopefully in a similar vein to the way the pun phenomenon exploded over CW.

    If you need tips on how to write a haiku, observe 1-9-7-7's posting style. The posts do not strictly form a haiku, but their disjointed form and over-abridging of information is more or less the essence of writing a haiku. The most important thing is to maintain a rigid 5-7-5 syllabic structure. I'll kick things off.

    'Copperfield,' said Mr. Micawber, 'farewell! Every happiness and prosperity! If, in the progress of revolving years, I could persuade myself that my blighted destiny had been a warning to you, I should feel that I had not occupied another man's place in existence altogether in vain.
    - Wilkins Micawber

    It's semi-autobiographical tbh.

    I'd love to break tradition and get a fourth line to know where the other hand is.

    Look, I enjoy CW & all, just not quite as much as all that. Confusing me with Dickinson, clearly.
