The Poke, a UK comedy website featuring spoof news, describes itself as “time well wasted”. I follow them on Twitter here.
They recently asked for poetry in haiku format, to be submitted through Twitter with the hashtag #newshaiku. Specifically, the haiku was to be “About the news. Or sport. Or entertainment. Or whatever you want.”
I sent them this:
Frozen roads, jammed cars / spades and shovels, digging fast / freezing my balls off.
They retweeted to 32,000 followers. Woop woop!
