Failed Haiku

Five syllables first
Second one has seven more
A failed Haiku!

So close… almost had it.

In keeping with the meta-theme, here is another one, written many years ago, and lightly edited by Danah Henriksen.

This limerick-wise
Has not the right size
Because the middle two lines are much too long
However, that is the way, although it be wrong
I economize!
