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:

Poor Steve...he does catch a lot of flack!
..... 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...

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?
