Friday haiku

So my friend Greg (god rest his soul…oh, he’s not dead. He just doesn’t call me anymore.) always used to write a Friday haiku and send it out to all his friends; and I had so much fun writing that absurd poem yesterday, I thought maybe he wouldn’t mind passing the torch along to me.

Here you go.

Setting back women’s
liberation one royal
wedding at a time.

    I was just reading something online about how she’s not actually a princess because she’s a duchess or something like that. Suck on that one, Disneyheads!

    I do think her dress was lovely, though.

      I may have to amend this to “filthy haiku friday.”

      I was hoping more people would post their own… guess I should have asked a question in bold!

    Did you know Disneyland has a Princess Half Marathon now? It’s so freakin’ expensive too. I know it’s gonna sell out because even grown ass women have a princess complex.

    I used to try to write daily haiku. The project lasted half a year. Some weren’t half bad and I’d even write in Spanish occasionally, but that’s tough since words have more syllables en español.

      Any event put on by Disney is fucking garbage and deserved to be eliminated by dint of horrific acts of God, a violent uprising by millions of aggrieved peasants, or thermonuclear bombs. Heckling it on the Internet is a good start, I suppose.

      Julie Threlkeld of Races Like a Girl used to write funny object Haikus:

      You’d have to pay ME to do the Disney Half. I heard it’s really annoying because people are constantly stopping on the course to take pictures and such. No thanks!

      If I can keep up the Friday haiku thing for six months, I think I’ll consider it a successful endeavor.
