A Haiku or Two, for Going Back to School

September  5, 2014

Haiku52:
Our thoughts on food and cooking
In seventeen beats.

Nilla wafers are
Superior to all snacks
It's a proven fact.

10:30 AM,
Time for lunch. The whole place smelled
Like ripened string cheese.

Are you inspired to write a poem about going back to school? The comments below are a safe space to express yourself.

Back-to-school shopping<br />Meant new Lisa Frank folders<br />And scented markers.

I would take the tests<br />And rewrite all the essays<br />To do it again.

Remember college?<br />Feels like many years ago.<br />We are getting old.
