A Fatherhood Haiku

Submitted by scott
An imperfect man, 
Trying to guide his children, 
Loving them always. 

I'd love to hear from the inner poet in you. Can you come up with a parenting focused haiku? If so, post it in the comments below and gain the love and adoration of my thousands of readers.

The Silent Night

Submitted by scott

In a city there once live a banshee,
Of screaming and pouting she fancied.

All day she decided to pester,
Which caused many tempers to fester.

In her behavior was found no delight,
And she caused her poor sister much fright.

Til one day enough was enough,
Her father did say, quite gruff...

“Unless you can turn the volume down,
Please refrain from coming around.”

“That racket causes much dismay,
I think I will go buy some hay... by the bay... I just may... someday.”
