That moment when a Haiku becomes a Deciku (5, 7, 5, – 5, 7, 5, – 5, 7, 5, 6)

Just when a Haiku

is getting into its stride

it comes to a halt!

Not the Haiku’s fault,

it’s just the way that it is –

too short by a mile.

Though, I have to smile,

when some clever poet-type,

ignores all the hype,

and adds another line.
