Here it is! Now through Thursday August 8th, post your planning or cyburbia haikus. On August 9th I'll draft a poll and we'll vote for the winner (prize to be announced at a latter date).

Place your title in the Subject line and Haiku in the message box. Remember to use the syllabic 5-7-5 format!

5-7-5?

I know 5-7-5. These are just the raw material. Sort of establishing a copyright for the themes. I'll edit them later.

I actual have work to do today. Perhaps I should only post finished product? humm...

Are you sure you work in the private sector?

(I received a poor mark in Haiku back at the childrens vegan learning collective in Bekeley. I did get an A in aggression and fasioning weapons out of children's toys though...)

Landscape

many dead cars in the front yard
rednecks and white trash

Thanks bturk

I would like to thank bturk for startiing this contest. I am sure that everyone who passes by my office is wondering why I am talking to myself and counting syllables with my fingers.

But I don't like it.)

Ok, I've actually printed some of these out and put them on my cork board for the enjoyment of all who comes into my office. Excellent idea Bturk.

to expand on dan's theme...

That's a deal breaker!
No truck docks next to the houses?
We'll take Lowe's elsewhere!

DNR

Ditch relocation.
A water of the US.
You need a permit.

Ditch relocation.
Restore the natural stream.
But it was man-made!

Need to fill wetland
Created three years ago.
Why is this so hard?

New jobs and taxes
Helping the city to grow
Mean nothing to them.

Avoid and minimize.
Done, now fill and compensate?
Mitigation sucks!

We made this wetland.
Haven't we proven ourselves?
DNR is dogmatic.
