Wish we brought in VCU
The Mo Valley sucks

You can take Cincy
out of the Valley, however,
their stuff still smells bad

RE: WSU Haikus
Haiku I’ve known since long ago
Few simpler forms are known in verse
In fact, I’m bored, if you must know
By syllabic tricks and stanzas terse.

But disagree! It is your right
As free men of education
Since poets want, I thought I might
Bring some lyric illumination.

Oh Philistines! How trapped you are!
By simple forms you do not grasp
Haiku clears a greater bar
Than only a syllabic cast

Unite or not, here is my crux:
We should all agree that Tulsa sucks.

Corn children do try.
But much to learn, you still have.
Please learn to hiaku.

Lifting for a jam
Colliding with a brick wall
Shaq's in the paint.

Riot of lanky limbs, sprawled
And weaving 'round the defense:
Markis everywhere

Shamet, five-tool man:
Pass, rebound, drive, defend, score
Like none 'fore or since.

Gentle as a kiss
C.J.'s caress of the rim
Shades of jams to come

JuCo players learn
The days of lions among sheep
End: adapt or die.

Hurricane of gold:
Shower of excellence, or
Piss from upstairs dorm?

Steel lives on, always
But Cincy must be pig iron
Dead city of rust.

A gun in your face
Knowing dawns: does he start for
The Bearcats at corner?

Chalmers broke your best
Cry not Memphis: you're lucky
It never happened.

Buddah asks ECU
With no sports or cash, is it
Truly DI sports?

New class at Houston:
Which will kill you first: the swamp
Or the murder rate?

A great green wave breaks
But I cannot tell, is it
Success or envy?

Mansion of pure gold
Burns the night sky, Mustang grad
Says not tacky enough

Our future admirals
Killing themselves, and for what?
Nine wins and a bowl loss?

F*** Kemba, F*** him,
F*** Kemba, F*** Kemba, just
F*** Kemba Walker.

Orlando, on Earth
The one place all mankind
Goes to avoid school.

I have nothing for
USF, so they will get
Let off my lyric hook.

Your haikus are trash
No poetry in your form
Slaves to syllables

Haiku art lies not
In spitting out five-seven-five
Until we all die

The art lies in the
Two juxtaposed thoughts
Art in dissonance

Haiku, simple, yes?
A pastoral form, not built
To capture hoop dreams

Broaden yourselves!
Learn another form to go
With your syllables

Basho, Kerouac
Four centuries apart, yet
Neither was so stuck.

I'd like to think after the (at least) four years of college I presume most of us have, we could muster some appreciation for something a little more complex than a third grade substitute day project art form. Or at least exert a little effort to capture some of the grace the haiku form captures beyond its simple syllabic construction.

But I guess they don't teach english more complex than "here's how you fill out a McDonald's application" at Tulsa or Cincinnati.
