At work today

My boredom is stunning. Wow! I've never felt quite this shockingly dulled!

So, I ask you to send me a Haiku. Make this Haiku about your respect for this blog. If you do so, I shall be overwhelmington. The joyfulness will strike me like Mjolnir. I will weep and beg for less happiness because it is driving me batsh*t insane.

You cut my eyes out,
Gobble, gobble, gobble, yum.
The iris tastes good.

Zack said...

The new lily sinks.
Goodbye to youthful lovers.
Old age sets in fast.

Zack said...

Matt Freeman, writer.
Matt Freeman, superhero.
Matt Freeman, blogger.

Kyle said...

Blogging at your job
Re: how bad you are at it...
A bad idea.

Sarah Ruhl said...

I read in secret
daily, wondering how I
can make you like me.

Freeman said...

Dear Lord! My shame is overwhelming!

David Johnston said...

I am told to write
haiku for Matt but I
do not like the form

Matthew said...

Blogger--your feelings
are not in this blog enough.
Who has betrayed you?

Roomie said...

I agree with Kyle.
Did Good Shepherd teach you nil?
I heart rent money.

Matthew said...

Name. Is it one syllable,
Or two. Isherwood?

Daily I plot how
I can destroy
Matt Freeman utterly

Phantasmaphile said...

Star Wars. Transformers.
Double-u double-u E.
My prince is a geek!

Qui Nguyen said...

I suck at haikus
I always use too many
words, but I agree that . . . DAMMIT!

Jaime said...

Soothing color scheme
Prevents my eyes from burning.
I appreciate.

Freeman said...

High praise, Jaime. High praise indeed.

I'll take it.

LB said...

I leave on a plane
Christmas, my destination
but might be delayed

i might not be witty enough today to participate....

david d. said...

I do not take part
But syllable check the rest
What does that make me?

Philucifer [aka Charlie Willis] said...

All are done by noon.
What? No afternoon haiku?
You lazy bastards.

Paula Vogel said...

My students; ATL - you
Did not seek Brown or write
Baltimore Waltz.

Jaime said...

Paula, normally
so lucid, but what the fuck
does that last one mean?

"ATL?" Actors Theatre
of Louisville? I
still can't parse the rest.

Paula Vogel said...

Listen, Jaime. I'll still win a five-figure fellowship for that haiku, whether you parse it or not. I'm Paula Vogel, dammit.

Jaime said...

Paula yelled at me.
But still, her recognition -
Long sought, fin'ly mine.

the disapproving centaur said...

Merry Xmas, Matt.
Come to the Magic Woods.
We hunt for sprites.


david d. said...

The Disapproving Centaur only had four syllables in his last line. The one before the "clops". 'Sprites', unlike 'Spirits' is only one.

What can I say? I get all red-pen schoolmarm when it comes to Haiku. I don't know why. It is a sad compulsion.

Jamespeak said...

Hey there, Fancy Pants.
I'm sorry I missed your show.
Please do not beat me.

isaac said...

Boredom strikes the man
Winter of the blogging soul
Freeman! Free Thyself!

Joshua said...

Lonely is the man
Who asks, nay, who just demands
our adoration

Freeman said...

So very true.
