A haiku

A green man shivers
Determined lion soars
The fall after sunset


...you have too few syllables in your second line, and too many in your last...:stuck_out_tongue:

I couldn't think of anything that fit, and I figured that most people wouldn't know the rules for a real haiku.

20 years out of school and I'm still getting corrected by teacher. :frowning:

Awwww…I’ll keep you after class for detention to help you out, if it’ll make you feel better…

It might! How about this one.

Orange uniform
A football flies in the air
The green tide weeps

(Pssttt...you need one more in your last line. :wink:)

Try this one on for size:

On Saturday night
Football gods frown upon those
B.C. football goofs.


Not bad not bad ... should be more zen like and whatnot but at least you got the syllables right lol. I should have used weeping instead of weeps in my last line.

For those that don't know ... a haiku is a japanese poem that doesn't rhyme. The criteria is that it must be 3 lines, and must have 5 syllables in the first, 7 in the second, and 5 in the last line.

This weekend beckons
The excitement builds higher
The Riders doom nears

I tot I taw a
puddy tat - I did, I did
taw a puddy tat

You two crack me up :lol:

You've gotta give him points for being the most creative of all the Lions fans.... :slight_smile:

which is kinda like being the smartest kid with Downs sindrone :smiley:

If anyone knows what movie that quote is from let me know cuz i sure the hell forget

Green of summer fades
Proudly wears fall's orange now
Never gone for long

Fingers graze the air
The sound of one hand clapping
'Cat fans cheer this year

Whatever happened to the simple stuff???

Roses are Red
Violets are blue.............

Luck falls orange way
the mighty riders collapse
only for one week

Rider Pride Ablaze
A mosaic of true faith
All others beware

When the Don rises
The Joseph shrivels away
Who is this Pickett

:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :rockin: :cowboy:

A Haiku for those who once played football:



Riders Rule
Grey Cup Champions
Rider Pride Nation Wide

In Turkey's Honour:

When Turkeybend writes
No bias can be discerned
Just pure boosterism

Where do I sign up....sounds kinky
