Haikus?

Haikus
 
Five, seven... and five;
That's seventeen syllables:
What else do I do?
 
Oh, they must make sense;
Be poignant, full of meaning
But,  what about rhyme!
 
No need for a rhyme?
Well, surely, that can't be right
It's never a poem!
 
Japanese, you say?
Makes little sense to my mind;
And why's it so short?
 
Hardly got going
And it's time for me to stop.
Can't see the point. What?
 
Only the one Haiku?
Not a multiple of them?
Rather silly this.
 
I've had quite enough;
The whole idea is duff!
I'm off- in a huff!
