Of course I can write
Bloody haiku poetry -
Anybody can!
(mjk 4.4.05)

The ancient Japanese poetry convention, comprising three lines and 17 syllables in a precise 5-7-5 pattern!
5 syllables
7 syllables
5 syllables
It's that easy!!!
From since I awoke,
I always knew that when this
Time came, I'd be right.

Oh, "She'll be right, mate,
Don't you worry about me,
I'll be fine," we choked.

Those ties that bound us
Are now forever broken:
Where to go from here...?
