HAIKU for PEOPLE
In this game your haiku's last line becomes the new haiku's first line!

(standard 3-line, 5 - 7 - 5-syllable pattern -- does NOT need to rhyme):


It looks like fun but I've never tried haiku. So I'll start it off with one from the old masters, Etsujin.

Covered with the flowers,
Instantly I'd like to die
In this dream of ours!

(so you use "In this dream of ours" as your first line and so on...)

Laid up. Laid to rest. Laid out. Suddenly getting laid doesn't sound like fun.

In this dream of ours
Illusion becomes alive;
Reality hides.

Reality hides,
But only from the blinded;
Vision, guides the wise!

But GPS guides the lost.

Why can't I have one?
I've been a good boy all day
I crave a muffin!

Of the banana nut type;
Oh, how sweet it is.

Always have a heart
That opens like a flower
You won't be lonely.

They sailed their warships
out into the starry sea.
Their wives got horny.

To make it up for the last lines that did not get used:

I pray it will last
To rest in your pulsing heart
Our sweet memories

Thank you grammargeek for setting us straight! :)

(bugdoctor messed it up twice)

I pray it will last
This time we call life
Birth, life, death so fast

To rest in your heart
Forever and ever
As one, as lovers...

(before it got messed up it was really rock'n cool)

Soon I will be free
To enjoy this awesome world,
Relieved of sorrow.

Dreamy, you're not following the rules of the game.
I'll continue with wercozy's last Haiku...

Hope without fear
my mind is clear,
precious moments.

If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around [the banks] will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs." -Thomas Jefferson
