Silly haiku

So much I know about love, my love -
when toothache and heartbreak, together strike
I want the dentist more.

[Forgive me, caferati! I just couldn't resist this one.]

(c) Annie Zaidi, December 2004.

Isnt love just a sweet shout
of that elusive wisdom-tooth
who didnt even leave you a photograph???

Tks Ubermensch !
Hey Annie [ zen master]
most facts of life are silly,
aren't they : love is the flip
side of the coin.

cheers !

The only haiku I've liked so far - not having had much affinity for the form :)

Sitting in a pokey cubicle in a cyber cafe in my favourite city, grumpy because I have so many emails, it's too cold in this place for my liking and they insist on playing god awful Vengaboys...
And then the sun came out again...this one made me grin and chuckle in my cubicle!
