       Science News Haiku
Like other haiku schemes here
Will become a list.
bungston, Jul 10 2009

       I don't think it will -   

       Lists are frowned on in the 'bakery.   

       But I could be wrong.
normzone, Jul 10 2009

       Wrong indeed you are
For scientific haiku
deserve a croissant
8th of 7, Jul 10 2009

       Your annotation
Is not merely cryptic, but
Ignores the verse form

Of science promised ? Here we
Sadly find it not.

       Grant available!
Prove that smoking is healthy.
Researchers queue up.
DrBob, Jul 12 2009

       There was a researcher who, like you,
Tried composing his findings in haiku.
At meetings they shunned him,
No funders would fund him,
And his students all came out on striku.
MaxwellBuchanan, Jul 12 2009

       Elegant. Simple.
Mass times the speed of light squared
Equals Energy.
DrBob, Jul 13 2009

But not really science news.
More like science olds.

Is that it doesn't rhyme much
Which I don't laiku.

Yes, he's positive.

hippo, Jul 14 2009

       Oh yes! So I did!
while we're at it, who's going
to change all those bulbs?

       [po] I would think twice
before writing us quite off
we might be handy!
zen_tom, Jul 14 2009

       wouldn't dream of writing you off or [hippo]   

       I'd even help with the flat if you get some beer in!
po, Jul 14 2009

       Careful, I might take you up on that! Although, conversely, if I drink enough beer, I don't mind quite so much about the (un)tidiness of the flat. In this way, a natural equilibrium emerges.

       Thanks for the tip, po/wagster. Now that I'm armed with breakability I'll try another lame effort:

Science haiku riles.
We protest poetically.

theleopard, Jul 16 2009

       Most of the above
"haikus" lack names of seasons.
So, they're senryu.

       This is the point where
you call me a pedant, and
maybe a right prick.

       Which is fair, of course.
I am not sure how to end.
