Maddie got a gun
"bang bang" shot him in the head
woke up, just a dream

Sushi for luncheon
Then pizza at supper time;
Gotta love Fridays!

Bar chat down again
I'm feeling disconnected
Upshot: solved a case.

Shady not so slim at all
Buy the rich bum a beer
Burp together in dissonance

A guide to haiku:
5 syllables, then seven
And five more again.

*Thankfully the thread made me learn more about haikus: here are few that are in 5-7-5, with the "kigo" and "kireji" rules applied*

Rain is pouring down.
Frank’s* tapping the night away
In sync and complete
-
The Tea Steepers Monks;
Doing the revolution
with polka dot pumps**
-
Spill it out*** you monks!
You have a fetish for feet
Blue veins and sunshine
-
The Prince passes gas
when he eats lots of ice cream:
I see dead people
-
The Prince loves big birds
Peacocks to be specific
If Freud only knew.

* Written: 2 syllables, phonetically 1 syllable (one of the problems in English as also mentioned in wiki)
**Unintended rhyme, haikus aren't supposed to rhyme
***Written: 1 syllable, phonetically 2 syllables

(Phew. The kigo rule makes this so hard, but it's so fun, too.)
