The hell of nineteen wet kids

To get dried and dressed

Thanks guys. This is my first attempt at a haiku. I think I could find them fun to do, but this one doesn't quite do it for me. I guess there's more to it than counting syllables. Any advice? Should we start a "how to haiku happily" thread?

You know what Liverpool poet Roger McGough says about haiku Becky:

"The only problem
with haiku is that you just
get started and then..."

I can understand you having a problem with slamming haiku. ?

I guess haiku don't take long to read...I think my style needs work though.

I think this was written in desperation. .?

It's all good Becky, throw in the towel, crack open a fresh tea, and remember that you might have forgotten one of those kids running around.
