In the spirit of

I offer haiku:

あまねうえ
しずかなやきね
つちをまつ。

here, a disclaimer:
seriously, this haiku,
you should not take, yo.

Don't remember where I read that one. And one about me:

If you read the "you're"
as the extended "you are"
then it works out fine.

Of course if you do,
then mine will no longer work.
What a conundrum.

I think that haiku
isn't really three short lines
but one that's quite long.

There are good exceptions, but yeah, but most of the ones I see made up could just be any sentence of 17 syllables and someone's just hit enter in the appropriate places.
I already have a hate thread. Necromancy > redundancy here, so post there.

My haikus are crap.
Just some sentences split up

They're actually
