Salvage Haiku Meme!


Ode to an Ostrich Ass

Well, I just don’t think
I have or will have cancer.
Skewer my ostrich ass
.

– by YC with inspiration from Laksmi

This “Salvage Haiku” came from
Laksmi’s blog, specifically today’s entry. I think this calls for a meme. Go forth and pick someone else’s blog, lift 17 syllables and put it in 5/7/5 format. Voila! Salvage Haiku!

You can think of this as a metaphor for karma – what goes around, goes around and around and around, endlessly. Or, for the notion of “ashes to ashes”. Or you could think of it as the Greening of the Blogosphere: Waste Nothing!

Go forth and salvage some poetry.
