I will pick the first ten haikus (or three-line poems), if we reach that many, that you guys provide and use them in our studio session tomorrow. We're improvising an entire album and I want you guys in on the lyrics. So here are the guidelines:

1. The haiku or three-line-poem must give "advice" to the reader, or serve as a warning for something.

2. Only one contribution per person.

3. Funny is always better.

4. If you want, you can also provide a limerick.

Go! You have until I head to the studio in twelve hours!

P.

PS — This album will be mastered and released like any album, and people do download my music, so make it good...

The prize is you get your poem read during the recording of the album.

So no, not really. It's just a lulz thing.

If we quit learning

Literature is wasted

Just go read a book

Is never having to say you are

Or so I'm told

There once was a fellow from Kansas

Who sneezed and spit on a canvas

His talent they praised

A hubbub they raised

These critics shall surely convince us

(1)

swirling spindly liquid limbs

spiraling through cement serum

you're an architect of light

 

(2)

swing those hips, move real slow

her body is

an endless circus
