A few haiku thoughts

five syllables here

and now seven go here then five

here. A freakin' haiku!

Has anyone ever tried to translate the Haka, the Maori ceremonial war dance, used to open rugby games and international expositions, into haiku form and if so, what would it be called?

Did you know that if you invert a haiku (7-5-7) the space-time continuum will collapse? Try it for yourself at home...

You're great at spelling, but your counting SUCKS.

um, yes. Just recounted my haiku.

It's 5-8-6. Its more of a Dooku.

Some editing will return it to the form without detracting from the sense or the beauty of the original:
