A haiku a day
keeps the doctor away.
Unless a bus hits you.

A haiku is a three-line/17-syllable poem about nature. Technically, this is a senryu, which has the same structure as a haiku but is about the nature of humankind, but ‘A senryu a day’ has an extra syllable and the rhythm is off.

The great thing about writing poetry is that I get to say, ‘Yeah, but…’ whenever the rules get in the way đŸ™‚

So many ‘buts’ in my writing…
