For anyone who doesn't know, a haiku is a three-line poem of 5 syllables/ 7 syllables/ 5 syllables.
The acknowledged master of the form was Matsuo Basho (1644-1694), whose most famous haiku (titled 'Old Pond') goes like this:
- old pond . . .
- a frog leaps in
- water's sound
My old friend McDermott (a suit) once wrote one called 'The Account Executive':
Remember to smile.
Give 'em the ol' shuck and jive.
You have people skills.
I got a new brief;(It's always nicer to be self-deprecating than to slag other people off, I feel).
It said: "Wanted. Big idea."
Thank God for YouTube.
And yes, I do acknowledge that mine is pretty shit.
So let's hear yours.
