"I Wrote a Swell Haiku"

Parody Written by:

Warren Baker

The Lyrics

Why not
I wrote a swell haiku
Because can’t rhyme

Thought the words were cool
No doubt, damn thing’s shinin’

Yeah, babe can’t stand it
Words mighty profound
She can’t stand it
Says “Too high brow.”

I wrote a swell haiku
I thought it fine

Wrote ‘bout things that moo
Farm spout
Herd was cryin’

This skewed brood
Had skewed view
Cow crew coup
Cow said to farmer “Ciao.”
Said they oft care when he goes tweak teat
Them cows cry foul!

I wrote a swell haiku
It’s not ‘bout swine.

The most parodied song of all time. And a wretched OS it most certainly is. Everyone has gotten in on the act. Glad to see your take on this piece of bovine effluvium.

Patrick- I truly hate this OS, but I thought I'd give it a go. Makes me miss JohnB's take on it. I miss that ol' wordsmith.

Poor rhythm in song
Hard to hide heifer haiku
But I did milk it

Unique makes me grin
Rhyme, rhythm, I'm not averse
A verse, though, well liked.
