Can you Haiku?
Etymology: Japanese
: an unrhymed verse form of Japanese origin having three lines containing usually 5, 7, and 5 syllables respectively

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

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.)

There are too many
things I want to say about

'Course I can haiku!
'Tis not really hard to do.
Like a frog leaping!

I can do that too,
And I remember the rules.
Under summer's sun.
