Haiku (Or Two) For An Ex

ARTICLE THE 5TH
1311.26

Ah, November.

As I write this, we are in the final days of National Novel Writing Month.  Or as some prefer to call it, NaNoWriMo.  All across the land, untold scores upon scores of people are feverishly hunched over their desktops and laptops, their netbooks and tablets, their typewriters, or even legal pads and spiral notebooks, hoping to produce at the very least the first draft of a novel by 23:59:59 PM on November 30.

And I’ve got nothing.

At least not anything that could become a novel-length narrative.

I did come up with a two-haiku composition not too long ago.  For some unknown reason, I was thinking about my ex-girlfriend — who shall remain nameless, because quite frankly, she doesn’t deserve any additional mention.  But before my mind returned to more pleasant topics, the haiku came to me, and I quickly wrote it down.

I suppose that at least part of my inspiration also came from country chanteuse Taylor Swift.  Therefore, I should extend the appropriate acknowledgements of thanks to Ms. Swift for this:

HAIKU (OR TWO) FOR AN EX

[Bleep] [bleep] [bleep] [bleep] [bleep],
[Bleep] [bleep] [BLEEP] [bleep] [bleep] [bleep] [bleep],
[Bleep] [bleep] [bleep] [bleep] [bleep].

[Bleep] [bleep] [bleep] [bleep] [bleep]:
Use your imagination —
[Bleep] [bleep] [bleep] [bleep] [BLEEP]!
