Daily Haiku: September 2007

Mendacious

I’m not mendacious
women dig my honesty
and my flying car

Pronunciamento

drunken best man speech
a pronunciamento
of distaste for peas

Factotum

my new factotum
didn’t expect to be asked
to embalm my dad

Noisome

I’m just eating lunch
if you find me so noisome
don’t come to IHOP

Panacea

unsurprisingly
Steven’s “great panacea”
was made of feathers

Intrepid

you’re very quiet
for such an intrepid soul
is it all that gauze?

Recreant

for your recreance
I must take drastic measures
no Cheetos for you

Varicolored

a prismatic meal
even more varicolored
on its way back out

Potboiler

no more potboilers
give me quality writers
like, you know, Dan Brown

Ne Plus Ultra

the ne plus ultra
of my indecisiveness
to be determined

Ignoble

this vase is priceless
but is it so ignoble
to drink Schlitz from it?

Roue

tell that old roue
to steer clear of my daughter
or he’ll catch her crabs

Impassible

impassible dad
con: cannot say “I love you”
pro: show and tell gold

Plangent

amidst plangent wails
roses rained on the casket
next time, get a tent

Cozen

to cozen a friend
is the mark of a scoundrel
so is a big S
