Have a haiku on me

In my world, everyone's a winner (either the words of a loser, or a fan of FDR) (I fall into the former category, in case you were wondering).

I have written a haiku in everyone's honour. Based on their competition entry...

Willowtree
He sat on the bench
Condensation set in. Stand
Up, skin's left behind


Karmyn
Fripples through the mist
She can't feel her mammaries
She and bra are one


Beccy
That shrinking feeling
A feeling of profound loss
Something's gone, 'downstairs'...


Pumpernickel
He licks the steel tap
It is minus seventeen
They have tongue for tea


Pamela
A tap up my nose
Emits lots of snot drip drop
Snot-cicles. Can't breathe


Sabrina
Wake up. Sit on loo
No tinkle. Just a wet bum
Darn iced loo water


enid
stick finger up nose
ouch! stabbed by icy nose hair
blood, freeze! finger stuck...


Swampwitch
Boobs freeze to brass bra
Pumpernickel licks the brass
Uh oh! Cold and stuck


Natalie
Run out of clean undies
Pull out trusty thermal slacks...
Too hot for summer


Jenny
Pull on thermals. Hot!
Pull them off, wring out the sweat
Cowboy hat instead


Robin

Ten pairs of knee socks
Toes are warm but nothing else
Knit some thigh warmers


The very nice man
L.M.M.'s a girl
Does not know what go-nuts are
Erik! Please explain...



PS I'm not a poetry freak. I suck at it. But I do like writing funny poems.

B-W-A-A-A-H!
Sorry I missed the "Thermal Wearing" Guess for a chance to have my own personal Haiku. You are a Haiku genius. These are gigglerific.
I am going to miss my blogging visits for awhile but will check in as often as I can.
Not Haiku, but a favorite quote, "It's colder than a witch's t*t in a brass bra.

Jenny said...

Fripples is my new favorite word.

ChrisB said...

these are hilarious and very clever

Karmyn said...

You are TOO CLEVER!!!!

Fripples - LOVE IT!

Pamela said...

you'll want to visit masago

I read Haiku there every day

Willowtree said...

I don't get haikus (never have, and sadly, being married to someone of Japanese ancestry doesn't help). I do like these ones though..

Dear beccy. No worries. They're fun to write.


Dear samantha louise. he he I'm glad you liked! "Poetry is the food of love" or, in my case, satire.


Dear swampwitch. Wow thanks. I'm glad you giggled at my haiku. I really like that quote. Brass bra, ouch.


Dear jenny. There just isn't a word to explain the problem like fripples.


Dear chrisb. Thanks, it's easy to be clever when you're doing it for cheaps laffs.


Dear Karmyn. You love fripples? Are you sure you don't find them a little umcomfy? hehehe. Kidding. I willfully misunderstood you.


Dear Pamela. Oh dear. That's a bit intimidating. I real haiku person, japanese name and all! I shall check it out, thanks for letting me know.


Dear willowtree. I don't really get haikus either. I'm sure it's something very zen. But that's why mine are total piss-takes...

Missy Moi (yeah me again - you know, the one who gave birth to you) - I saw that there were a couple of sayings. When we were young and silly and the temperature got down to 5 deg celsius we would say that the cold would "freeze the balls off a bronze monkey". I had forgotten that until I read some of your visitors comment!!!! Hoo roo.

Sabrina said...

Love the haiku--thanks, chica!!! Stay warm!

Robin said...

Dear Little Miss Moi~

:) I'm a closet poet. And there's never any predicting what will make my spirit soar.

Humor goes a loooonnnnnnggggg way.

Thanks for "mine" (but they were all fun!).:)

Little Miss Moi said...

Dear mama moi. A haiku is a poem that doesn't have to rhyme, but has to be three lines long - five syllables on the first line, then seven, then five. And I think I've heard you say 'freeze the balls of a brass monkey' quite a few times when the temps dropped below 10 celcius!


Sabrina and robin - you're welcome. Funny poems anytime is a pleasure. Robin - you'll have to show us some of your pomes!

Mama Drama Jenny said...

Ha! You are brilliant!

Little Miss Moi said...

Dear jenny. Gee thanks! If I think you're funny, and you think I'm funny, then that must mean that I just might be funny... even a little bit.
