I don't deny this gave me a good laugh and was worthwhile to read however there seems to be quite a bit of controversy about it... Was it original? It's possible to come up with the same thing as someone else but unlikely. And if you really did copy something you saw once, please, you shouldn't don't do it again. It's not right to trick other people and take advantage of Teen Ink. If you really did like this and wanted to claim it as your own, next time try adding your ow... (more »)

Guys, this is a completely unoriginal poem. It's not even 'inspired,' it's just completely copied out, which is against TI's mantra. So please, in response to this, don't give plagiarism a good rating, because it definitely doesn't deserve it. I don't 'think' this was copied, I know. Just compose a quick google search, and you'll see how right I am.

Ripped off, but funny. I think you could have used the idea, but applied it differently, given it a new twist, in a way that's personal to you. 

Also, haikus are very complex, more so than is readily perceivable to the american eye.

This is hilarious, but it doesn't count as a haiku, it doesn't have any nature in it.

AYe! It is fnny, I got a few good chuckles out of it, but it isn't really to be considered a haiku. But good job anyways:)

You obviously don't have a Japanese-haiku purist in your household :)
