Haiku-posts are stale. July 30, 2001 3:39 PM   Subscribe

By the power vested in me, I, Shadowkeeper, declare haiku-posts to be officially passe.

Well. I guess that's settled.

Haikus are outlawed,
only outlaws will write them
How fascist are you?

Well I guess that's it
For little old me. Perhaps
limericks are next.

Has anyone seen fooljay and DoublePostGuy in the same room together? (If you did, what did DoublePostGuy look like?)

Shadow Keeper thought that he would say
haiku-posts had become quite passe
the metafilter mob
branded him a big snob
"stop telling us what we can say!"

I can hardly wait
Until calling trends passé
Is passé itself.

No more Haiku. From now on the clever posts will be alliterative.

I post however I would damn well please.
(I mainly pass on threads that "die in threes".)
Should Metafilter change its paradigm,
Then Plastic may revive before its time.

Fun with Iambic Pentameter.
