    occasionally, if im the only one sitting in the chatroom, i start coming up with haikus....(dont ask why) anyway, i found a file on my computer with several that i did one day... i figured id post them before deleting the file...

    aquatic missle
    going up, down, to and fro
    evading o'shea

    suffer from ennui?
    write cephalopod haikus
    in this here chatroom

    Kraken with Razors
    Evil Cuissanart for Fish
    Messie comes for thee

    what is wrong with you?
    stop writing those darn verses!
    talk about octos

    he is still waiting
    in r'lyeh with his minions
    all hail cthulhu

    abbra cadabra
    the uprooted tree appears
    wait, it was a dream

    have another cold one
    architeuthis will show up
    and pink elephants


    :cthulhu: :heart: :beer:

    ..... and the more flack that he catches the more flack that is flacked at him. He feels totally flacked sometimes :roll:

    All I can say is :meso: and :squid: 'look out'; there's squid on the horizon

    sorry about that...flak is a german acronym from wwii.... (hence the ask kat line)

    uhhh lets see: Fl(ieger) a(bwehr) k(anone)

    i stand somewhat corrected, id never seen it before but the dictionary has an alternate spelling with a 'c' in it.... well shoot...

    Please translate!
    German acronyms don't do much for me when they are, uh, still in German. :?:

    I once posted a haiku
    to old Message Board

    Why did it remain
    unsung and unrecognized?
    it was serious :cry:

    Now -- O frabjous day --
    an excuse to revive it....
    Beware my next post!

    :twisted:

    WK, you are correct, sir! Flak is the correct spelling of the anti aircraft air exploding projectile guns...the brits also called it "ak-ak" (jeez, sounds like the martians from Mars Attacks)
    Great poetry...always brings a grin to my sunburned face!

    slow to produce her lost work :P
    behold my old one


    Skulking through the sand
    An underwater Shiva
    Stronger than a tongue

    odd.....i thought that last line was "strong, like a tongue" oh well i guess i change it back

    Skulking through the sand
    An underwater Shiva
    strong, like a tongue


    any opinions on which is better?
