Haikus are easy

But sometimes they don't make sense


Threadless shirt slogan. Of course, this is not a haiku, but merely a comment about haiku. Counting syllables does not a haiku make. So, ahem, maybe they are not as easy as this T-shirt would have us believe. And the plural of haiku is just haiku, not haikus.
