Haiku Game

Should be simple enough. Each poster posts a haiku - a poem consisting of 3 lines each broken up into 5,7, and 5 syllables respectively. Then the next poster takes the last line of the last haiku and makes it the first line of their own haiku. Hopefully this will get some interesting haiku. 3 lines may not be long enough, but I'll see how it works first.


Example:
Poster 1:
The raindrops invade,
Seeping deep into the roof,
Drowning my sorrows.

Poster 2:
Drowning my sorrows,
I waddled home through dark fumes,
Hazy paths beyond.


I'll start.


The crimson clouds waft
High above my head they drift,
Endlessly falling.

Endlessly falling
I shouldn't have stepped out of
this airplane mid-flight.

This airplane mid-flight
Overloaded septic tank
caused it to explode.


The world is not beautiful, and that, in a way, lends it a sort of beauty.

Caused it to explode
Failure of the repair man
Who now has no job.

Who now has no job?
A question we wish was asked
In this world of want.

Would you stop cutting in line
for minimum wage.

In this world of want
I have the nerve to ask for
Another donut

For minimum wage
Many a job I won't do
Like feeding your sharks

Use whichever.

Like feeding your sharks
Feeding your alligators
is an easy job.

Is an easy job,
As the butchers explain it;
Still, my heart wrenches.

Still, my heart wrenches,
And still, my stomach hammers,
My brain screwdrivers.

My brain screwdrivers,
My liver margaritas;
I'm not driving home.

I'm not driving home,
I snap back to consciousness:
Visions scatter off.

Visions scatter off
Near or far, it's all a blur;
I've lost my glasses.

I've lost my glasses!
How will I see without them?
Mystery of time.


Please join my Pokemon WWG! It's going to be awesome!

Mystery of time:
Where does my other sock go,
When the dryer stops?

When the dryer stops,
The dread begins to creep in:
Now I have to work.


The first is the only to ever have been the only.

Now I have to work
As this football team's mascot
It's too hot in here.

Don't throw that barf bag around
It's completely full.
