Betta Haiku

Anyone else wax poetic and write haikus?

============

pellet in water
OM NOM NOM NOM NOM GULP MOAR?
uneaten food? Nah.

============

I hide like ninja
Behind thermometer see?
I'm invisible

============

You change the water
I attack alien probe
Saved the tank again.

============

Moss ball of weirdness
I swim underneath you lots
Why do I get stuck?

I can't be the only one who writes bad haikus

I'll keep at it until someone else writes some

==============
Fleeting bubble nest
I slave over you for hours
Water change, destroyed.

==============
I wiggle and beg
Cruel mistress ignores me
Just one more nom please?

==============
Who moved my hammock?
Who moved my moss ball and plants?
I'm in a new world

==============
I can stare at you
For eternity and more
Feed me pellets now.

Haikus are easy! Each line must have a certain number of syllables - no more and no less.

First line: 5
Second line: 7
Third line: 5

Here's a simple haiku that Flambé wrote about feeding time:

om nom om nom om
nommy nommy nommy nom
nom om nom om burp


They don't have to make sense or even be any good (see my examples above). I bet you could make one if you try

Fishy fishy fish
Staring from a tiny cup
I must take you home

Little green betta
I know what your secret is
You want more nomies ....XD

Jiro looking calm
so lovely and serene
how your fins do shine

Kurai your so bold
My little fearless girl
The warrior fish

My wacky little petting zoo:
30 guppies
5
betta's
5 ducks
4 dogs
2 pygmy goats
2 chinese bottom feeders
1 corn snake
1 sweet little Kitty,
and a rabbit

"Wisdom is realizing your life is not your own, but belongs to those little things that depend of you, and the big things that love you..."
