I am a terrible poet

Haiku, a haiku

First, five syllables

Then use seven syllables

Five more syllables

Haiku, another haiku

This is a haiku

Notice that it has the right

Syllable amount

What is that noise

A random buzzing

Comes in with the summer breeze

Through my room’s window


I ate a sandwich

It was all right but not great

I used too much cheese


Poetry is hard

But haikus are not so bad

They are pretty short


I want a castle

But they are too expensive

For a grad student


There are seventeen

Syllables in a haiku

So don’t run out of


If you’ve read this far

You have read all my haikus

I apologize
