I LOVE THIS. It's so true. Haikus are kind of perceived as the easy-way-out poem, but anyone who has tried to fit a world of meaning into a five-seven-five format knows better. This is great.

Oops, I made a mistake... the last line should be 5 syllables...This is why haikus are menacing little creatures.
