    Okay, let's just keep it simple and write some haiku. As a refresher a haiku should be written as three lines of five, seven, and five syllables.*

    I'll just get the thread started again by repeating two of these from earlier...whoever's next can continue by using the last line of the last haiku and we're off.

    Okay, use 'Of the finest sort' for your first line and let's write some more haiku!

    *Yes, there is more to it than that but for the purposes of this thread this will do.

    Feeling of the days (5-7-5, remember)
    spent in wretched gracelessness,
    passing without you
    High school = much work = procrastination = mother shouting = shouting back at mother

    passing without you
    And remembering those highs
    I never looked back
