rock and roll haiku!
So DJ had this assignment last week where he had to write five haikus. It wasn't an easy task as a)DJ is not exactly poetic in his thinking and b) two haikus had to be about Rome and two about Greece.
Fortunately for the boy, the last haiku could be about anything. When asked for help choosing a subject, I gave my son the old adage "write what you know." And so fifteen minutes later he came into the living room with his fresh haiku, entitled The Stages of Van Halen.
David Lee Roth rocks
Gary Cherone doesn't count
Sammy Hagar whines
Tha was beautiful, man. He really gets the nuances of the whole Van Halen saga.
And so I open the floor once again for a haiku contest (no prizes, I don't have anything worth giving out and I still haven't sent Hubris his Twinkies) except for the adoration of people who dig things like haiku and rock and roll.
Your mission: write a haiku about your favorite rock band. Come on, I need some entertainment on a Monday!
