I had so much fun doing my Insurance Haiku post that I decided to do a second installment. Writing a haiku is a lot of fun and I sometimes find myself counting syllables on my fingers at random times trying to make things fit.
My first haiku in this installment is inspired by the cold February we have been having here in Wisconsin. In the summer we say “It’s not so much the heat but the gosh darn humidity”. Right now for me it’s not so much the cold but the gosh darn wind.
The icy wind cuts
to my heart. I am living
in a chest freezer.
I have always tried to grow a beard. I do not seem to have the genetics for it. I haven’t shaved my face clean since at least November (although I have trimmed) but I can’t seem to fill in the holes and make my face look respectable. I have made many attempts at this so most people tease me much like they did when I started. So I decided I would have to do it myself.
I am not hirsute.
My beard has more patches than
a hobo’s jacket.
My final haiku for this installment is inspired by cookware. I have a teflon pan that has been with me since university and I am religious about never using metal on or in it. It seems like once a single scratch is made it is only a matter of time before the pan is unusable.
Teflon pan is like
a hemophiliac: one
scratch could finish it
I hoped you enjoyed reading these as much as I did composing them.
