Technically, Haikus are not written with 17 syllables. However, the Americanized version of Haikus seem to support this methodology. It's one I like to use as well.

I can't take credit for the following, although I read it recently and love it:

I see you driving
'Round town with the girl I love
And I'm like, haiku

My previous haiku was in fact exactly about the topic of the thread this split from: http://wizardofvegas.com/forum/off-topic/general/10214-so-whats-your-views-about-one-time-stand/


Quote: Mission146

I picked up the tab,
As dusk became day, quickly;
I called her a cab.


Fresh vanity plate
Dice adorning the mirror
A rare one it was

Yet mattered it not
As before eight we pulled up
To the house we sought

So eager to leave
Left the chauffeur a promise
Of smelling him yet

For but a minute
I observed my empire
The end of the road

As time came to be
Bethroned as the prince
Of the town Bel-Air
Resist ANFO Boston PRISM Stormfront IRA Freedom CIA Obama

Big bellied gambler

Stinking stogie in his hand

Seeks a monster roll
"What, me worry?"

Legendary length and girth

Never goes hungry

Finally, a thread where anyone can do the math!

Where's that waitress with my Scotch?

While it violates the requirement that the subject be related to one of the four seasons (if I remember correctly without Googling it), here is my video poker haiku:

Four to a royal...
Only need the Jack of clubs...
Damn, missed it again.

We have a winner,
But it's only six credits;
Hit the Deuce of Clubs.

All these haiku suck

No poets here, just gamblers

Don't quit your day jobs
"What, me worry?"
