Public Notice RE; Novelty Haiku

ATTENTION PHARMACEUTICAL WHOLESALERS

If you must send junk mail, your friendly recipients at wearewedges.com now require it to be sent in haiku format. You do remember what I haiku is, right? No?


HAIKU PRIMER

Well, we did some research, and apparently, the format of a haiku depends on what language you would like to write it in. We’re going to keep it simple here and leave it at “poems consisting of 3 lines, the first containing 5 syllables, second line 7 syllables, and last line 5 syllables.


OK, SURE. WHAT DOES THIS HAVE TO DO WITH WEDGES?

Nothing, absolutely nothing except that if you write and send me a haiku about anything related to my wedges, I will post it. If you send me junk mail, in haiku format, I will read it! No other haiku will be accepted!! Well, we're still accepting death threats -- but only in haiku format!!!

Here is my attempt at writing a haiku – Death threat styles:

Uttered under breath
Eyes staring as if to kill
Abruptly depart




Walter came up with one on the topic of junk mail:

Lottery winnings
Accost my inbox daily
Who are these people?


***SEND YOUR HAIKU. WE REQUIRE AMUSEMENT.***

I'm not a poet, but here we go:

Emails not friendly
miracle drugs cure what ails
sneak past my filter

The air on puffy white clouds
