D-squared is troubled
He says: haiku rots the soul!
Go read his blog. Now.

Yes, I realize that not only is this not clever, but D?’s post practically begs for this response. But maybe I’ll be the first!

Anyway, screw him. If the Japanese can translate iambic pentameter into their language, where it undoubtedly makes no sense at all, why can’t we translate haiku into ours? Of course it’s butt easy, that’s the whole point for poetry challenged people like me, isn’t it? If I’d had to write a sonnet in order to make this post, it just wouldn’t have happened.

Besides, I liked this Windows haiku the first time I read it, and I still think it’s pretty funny. So there.
