Everyday Nuisance Haikus

A friend of mine on Facebook started a thread in which she challenged us to produce Everyday Nuisance Haikus.

Thus far, I have produced the following:

Curs't JSON service
Won't load o'er http
my form is broken.

Typo in the code
Unable to find service
Fixed! Service restored

I wait at my desk
Send documents for updates
So I can go home

Slow with many cars
The highway inches me home.
Frustrations abound.

Uncleaned dishes wait
The laundry pile is so high
I'm a bad adult

Feel free to add your own in the comments. It's surprisingly therapeutic.


  1. I wrote a few about my dogs last year. Here's the best one:

    Moistly, brown eyes plead;
    I melt and deliver treats.
    I'm a pushover.

  2. I don't know if you're familiar with the SPAM-ku Archive. In excess of 19,000 haikus, all on the subject of Spam. Highly recommended but in small doses...

    1. Dear God, truly?

      Actually, on second thought, that makes a bizarre sort of sense...


Feel free to leave comments; it lets me know that people are actually reading my blog. Interesting tangents and topic drift just add flavor. Linking to your own stuff is fine, as long as it's at least loosely relevant. Be civil, and have fun!
