I'm no natural poet, and the rather awkward TPPCPPC format doesn't lend itself easily to haiku, but I'll post it as a challenge anyway.

They'd have been posting
beautiful haiku poems.
maybe I should have.

Who knows what's next. Vogon haiku?

Note: summary name change.

       with love they would have
been having all they needed,
wouldn't they have been?

       They'd have been thinking
they would have been finding it
easier than pie.

       Yes! I finally get somebody to explain TPPCPPC to me. What exactly does the acronym stand for, anyway?

       "They'd have continued?
They'd have been continuing."
waugsqueke corrected.
  

       One other mistake...
"That way, they'd have been finding."
Thank you, nonetheless.

       They would have had a
severe headache from reading
all of these haiku.

       The classical:   

       They'd have been walking
in the falling snow. Snowmen
they'd have been building.
  

       The self-referential (insofar as you can be self-referential in the third person)   

       They would have been wri-
ting lyrical lines which would
not have been rhyming.
  

       The final   

       Bakers would have been
saying "We'd rather eat fish
and spit out the bones."

       A B C D E
and F would have been making
a short alphabet.

       Cyrano:   

       They'd have been calling   

       That a nose if their faces   

       Had not been valleys.
