From what I recall in grade school, a haiku is Japanese form of poetry, consisting of exactly three short lines. The first line must have exactly five syllables, the second line seven syllables, and the third line five. They usually are observational and contain some ironic or pithy statement.
So I thought it might be fun for us to try our hand at creating funny Tull haikus!
The only rules are, they must be funny and they must strictly conform to the 5-7-5 format, as explained above.
Flo's no slouch, so why do I want to pull him off stage by his chin strip?
Let's have some fun with this!

Here's one about our efforts and offers to help promote Martin's new album and tour.
Maintaining the 5-7-5 syllable format, of course!
"We'll help you, Martin," said The Board....he said "Okay"! Then he disappeared.
lol. I have to say that I feel much better now after reading (A New Day - issue #113 - your welcome Dave!) that Martin doesn't return Ian's and James' emails as well. But you and I already knew that as Ian mentioned it when we met him a few years back.
But it begs the question, if this is the reason Ian pulled the plug?
