5-7-5: A Compilation of Old Twitter Haiku

So ever since I started Twittering, I’ve taken it upon myself to write at least one haiku per day. Why? Who the hell knows. I guess it started back in Cousin Dave’s Adam Carolla days, when Mark the Poet and I would go head-to-head in our “limerick wars” and I’d emasculate him on a regular basis. Anyway, I started writing the occasional sports-related haiku, and I suppose I never looked back. With that, here’s a complete listing of every haiku I’ve Tweeted since July 21, 2009 and up through today, with the first haiku entitled, appropriately enough, “Haiku.”
