Frequently I bare this curse
Waking as school ends

Sleep still escapes me
It has been two days since last

at a very short haiku;
it's about some states:

O! An area
Iowa or Ohio?
Any idea?

If one person fails
To understand a haiku,
It might still be good.

:-P

Haiku of Top Gear
They performed an epic race
Of '50s machines.

A train, a Jaguar
And a Vincent Black Shadow.
The car always wins.

Vincent Black Shadow:
Let me Google that for you
Most awesome cycle.

Out of my boredom
Haiku meets the light of day
Only to be lost again

This is important
The keyboard has keys on it
Why does this matter?

And now I decide
It is my chance to be free
Yet I don't break rules

Jump the bandwagon
Forgiveness for bad haiku
Will you give me any?

The meaning of life?
If told, I would have to kill
But a hint for you

The colors of dawn
They greet me on my waking
But still lonely

I did not expect
The Spanish Inquisition
What now, I wonder?

The pirates are here
Their crew and ships are many
But there be ninjas

The tubes are troubled
It causes melancholy
But that is okay

An unclear haiku
It does not want you to know
About anything

haikus all have bad grammar.
So I said to him:

"Will, can you get me
a couple of cheeseburgers
and a dozen grapes?"

And what did he do?
he didn't see the haiku,
he just brought me food.
