New word of the day, “sabotage”

Now I’m hiding in the garage

Got the tablet on knee

Hoping he won’t find me

Yes, Limey Rick is now at large

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!
