Earlier in the week, Deny It All (in quite exuberant fashion) crowned the lovely Becca, Queen of the Haiku; her WINNER, warming us in beauty, hinting at the lilting smells of jasmine and free umbrellas for ALL!!! Unfortunately, sweet Becca was simultaneously crowned Queen of the Death Bed, herself being sicker than a dog with the mange tearing at her insides (I don't actually know this as truth, but makes for great story), and is unable to host this week. Free falling well down the totem pole is my silly ass'd self hosting in her stead. (note to self, wear shining armor, find mud, dip & roll).
Rousting her enough for an opinion, we've agreed on the theme of CHAMELEON.
Being its literal self or a more fanciful ideology of its character, we're looking for a haiku of standard 5-7-5 line format, your usual smart commentary and, of course, some SMILES.
Throw down as many as you'd like and if you'd like them judged or just enjoyed for shits & giggles. Being that I'm smack dab in the middle of a deadline tighter than my frog'n ass drowning in high water, I'm getting a little help this time around from Corey Jo, (possibly) her sister-in-law, Kristen, and (hopefully) Miss Becca herself, assuming she can raise her head out of bed and give me some feedback. Mind you, I've learned a lot these last few years from our campaigner-in-chief, and if I don't like what the others are putting props to, I reserve the right to ignore, place blame and proclaim Presidential Order. (just saying... I know best, if they realize it or not).
Good Luck everybody and happy haikuing!!!!!!!!!!!!!
