Yesterday, while on twitter, I joked about having an all haiku twittering day.
I was unprepared for the deluge of Haiku Hatred replies that I received. Totally unprepared.
I had no idea that people hated Haiku. How can you hate Haiku?
My new TBF (TwitterBestFriend) @jenthegingerkid (visit her online at http://jenthegingerkid.blogspot.com/) threatened to unfollow me if I twittered in Haiku. Of course, this devastated me. How could she unfollow me over Haiku? Everyone loves Haiku.
But then the @replies continued to pour in. Only three of my Tweeps encouraged me to Haiku. (and that @amiestuart only wanted me to so that @jenthegingerkid’s head would explode)
So I gotta know:
Why you be hatin’
What has haiku done to you
Don’t be a hater
I will admit to having to stifle the desire to haiku all day today. I also will admit another little secret that I don’t think @jenthegingerkid picked up on this morning…my first tweet to her was a haiku. My oppositional-defiant nature couldn’t resist.
Oh yes. I’m good.
Of course, now that I’ve outed myself, will she forgive me or will she unfollow me? We shall soon see…
