    I take the same size shoes as them Jedi. Â They outshopped me at the PS sale, leaving me nare a tatter to purchase. Â This was the force paying them back for hogging the Grensons. Â Let that be a lesson to y'all.

    A haiku is a form of poetry. There is no set syntatic structure, just the form:

    5 syllables
    7 syllables
    5 syllables

    As Dakoka Rube points out, strictly speaking, the season in which the poem was written should also be referenced.

    farmer farmer farm: farmer farmer farmer farm, farmer farmer farm.
    Nice pÃ[​IMG]guysto-dadaist haiku.
    Tristan Tzara would be decidely proud. It shall hang alongside that convulsive beauty of a painting, "Portrait of Journalist Sylvia von Harden" by Otto Dix.
    To really bring it to full Dadaist glory we'd need to get 10 of us onstage in a cafe in Vienna and recite that in 10 different langauges simultaneously.

    I have no damn idea what Haiku is; too chic and trendy for me, but I know limericks, such as:

    There once was a lad from Paree,
    His name was Ernest you see,
    He didn't like brown,
    It would cause him to frown,
    His true love: Hilditch & Key
