Okay, folks... give it your best shot!

Who's first?

a lonely figure at the computer
posting gibberish.
oh, problem is loose nut at end of keyboard!

Um, apparently a reminder is in order ( :p ) -- Haiku is a 17-syllable verse form, three lines, consisting of three metrical units of 5, 7, and 5 syllables.

Kimo's one sounded like a Rap Reiplinger take-off. Ho, that guy had some good ones.

Unsuspecting dog
Little does he know
Manong in da shadows.

A lonely figure in a nonexistent line
I wait for hours.
Oh... banks closed on Saturday!

Ten-foot waves wash da shore.
Undertow and shifting sands.

Rap Reiplinger, Poi Dog, 1978

Voters never learn
Same party keeps on winning
Problems keep growing

God's sense of humor
Coatless monkeys with no hunch
Look in a mirror

Kimo types away
Oblivious to the words
That leave his fingers

A Haiku haiku

Climb the Haiku stairs
For the thrill of a lifetime
Take photos for proof

Tom Haggard is a lie

The devil made you do it

Oh, wandering Pube,
Falling out of my surf shorts,
Where are you going?
