Just for future reference: we would ask that you use the original thread, not being able to find it and not wanting to use it after it's been provided for you are seperate issue. But since there are other distractions at the moment, I'll merge the two if I can find it in the drop down list.

Most people know not
That, of the structure of haiku,
The counts needn't be exact.

How the structure is
kept, Japanese to English,
Nobody may know.

And now I, this post
conclude, with this final
line of verbiage.

This was always my favourite haiku, don't know whether it's already been posted in the thread but can't be bothered to read right the way through to find out...

Haiku are easy:
All you do is stop at the
Seventeenth syllab.

There's five syllables
Then there's seven syllables
Then five - the haiku.

Nice nonsense haiku.
Or does it actually
mean something profound?

Is it parody

is ignored? Maybe.

Is tastelikecoke drunk?
Maybe stoned? Or just plain weird?
Could be anything.
