Hip Hip Haiku

Tricky. Damned Tricky. This is what trickled out….

At night, among black pigs,

He needed to see the light

To save his beacon.

  2. To save his “beacon”. 😀 I need to start writing these. Every week they seem too difficult. I’m not a poet. And I know it. Is it supposed to be 7-6-5? I’d always done 5-7-5 but, again…not a poet. I think it varies.

  6. This haiku deserves an award for the most original and funniest haiku I’ve ever read on here.

    I didn’t think they could be funny, but you’ve just taken the ‘bacon’ so to speak. 🙂
