I wish I was a Haiku, so simple,
Not unwieldy and cumbersome like me,

If I were Haiku, I'd be done by now
I am looking to lose ten Syllables

Because I think my verse looks big in this
I see those Haikus lying in the sands

And say these fourteen lines are just my glands!
It's not my fault I am written this way

Some day soon I will make those poets pay
Sometimes when no one is looking I will

try and squeeze myself into just three lines
and seventeen syllables. It don't work.

It seems I'm doomed to be a sonnet
And all the other poems laugh at me
