Not a conventional Haiku

This is not a conventional Haiku,

as you can tell by the line length,

the syllable count,

and the number of lines involved.

In fact, it has no recognisable form.

and it doesn’t even rhyme.

It might not catch on,

but it’s good to buck the poetic system

once in a while.

the Tanka, and the like

You can always move on

to free form free verse,

like this one – but better,

or marginally worse.
