In Praise Of Haiku
It all started last March. Emily Caswell, who was then working at the front desk here in the Dankosky Building, sent an email to all employees about a pair of glasses found in the parking lot.
I wrote a haiku:
doesn’t it look fine
seeing the world in a blur
without these glasses?
Two weeks later, Emily sent us all an email about a gray men's belt found in the parking lot.
So I wrote:
As gray as the sky,
As gray as UFO men,
This belt, found in March.
In April, Emily notified us about a black and yellow glove found near the door.
in black and yellow
once you were two orioles
now, Michael Jackson
So I started to wonder if anybody else writes work haiku. This show answers that question.
