Hammer Haiku

Today @lucysfootball and @lgalaviz, two twitter friends, starting sharing haiku about hammers. Why? I'm not sure. It's possible that they were trying to avoid doing something else (certainly that's not why *I* contributed). I'm not here to judge. But I can't pass up a chance to write haiku.

I've written haiku about pee before. Could hammers be that much harder?

Here's my first offering:

My hammer is quick. It beats your head in nicely. Pound pound pound pound pound.

It's about hammers AND violence. I'm pretty sure that's exactly how haiku is supposed to work. I'll keep you posted if I come up with any more.

  1. @lgalaviz and I have decided we wield hammers and can hammer people if they don't follow the very arbitrary rules we came up with to follow on Twitter - I think that's the reason behind the haiku. Also, a., it's slow in the office today. Everyone's at some leadership conference or something. Probably doing trust-falls or team-building garbage, I don't know, and b., I have a poetry degree that I don't use enough to justify the student loan payments I'm making. Huzzah! :)

  2. Ah! So my violent haiku was really quite perfect for the occasion. I'm impressed by the poetry degree. That's totally awesome!

    rest in peace, dear dad.

  4. Thank you the information on your blog was very useful.
