Hump Day Haiku started out as a way for my friends and I to insult each other on Facebook in a unique way… because we are geeks who like to make fun of the ones we love. Now, I want to start a new trend in the blogging world that can be a lot of fun, ridiculous or insightful!
What is a Haiku? It’s a Japanese poem with three lines (5 syllables, 7 syllables, 5 syllables) and is traditionally about nature. However, my Hump Day Haiku can also be called Haiku that Hurt! Or Hilarious Haiku… or err.. at least I think they are funny!
Every week I will pick a new Haiku topic. You can join in with my topic or haiku what inspires you!
This weeks topic is: Mom Wars or Sick Kids or Things that make me angry!
What to do:
- Snag my Hump Day Haiku button on the sidebar

- Visit other blog links, comment and share the love!
- Or feel free to just comment a Haiku!
Mommyhood is hard
It shouldn’t be easy! Why?
I’m not on something!
I find that a lot of people strive for perfection in parenting. I ranted about that very topic last week because so many people want to think others are bad parents but they are perfect… psssshhh. If someone thinks being a perfect parent is easy then I think they are on something!
This week’s addition of Hump Day Haiku is all about my kids!
How I love my son!
He is funny sweet and kind
Even when he farts.
My son has a way about him… he is very charming and sweet. He is also a comedian… like when he will snuggle with me just to fart on me and then tell me how much he loves me.
I think it’s funny
I have a boyfriend. You don’t.
My girl said to me.
Yeah… so being a single Mom isn’t easy especially when your 3rd grade daughter likes to mock you that she has a boyfriend and you don’t. I told her I will ground her for life… her response was “Yeah thats okay but I will still have a boyfriend.” haha I raised a mini me! Awesome!
Birthday gone again.
The years just fly by so fast.
I miss my babies.
My daughters birthday passed… it is bittersweet. I love the amazing lady she is becoming but I miss the days of her being a chubby monkey in my arms.
Why do boys obsess?
Not just like. They are crazy!
My son loves his junk.
My son is so obsessed with his penis I thought it was only appropriate that I write a haiku about it.
We are doing a fundraiser for Japan relief where we are selling Origami. It’s been really positive and I’m super excited about raising awareness, giving a bit of culture to our school and raising some funds. In addition to that my daughter decided that she would rather have donations for Japan relief than gifts.
Japan needs support.
Donations. No birthday gifts…
My daughter requests
Trista makes cranes for
Us to sell. Japan Relief.
She’s just O C D
I’m totally poking fun at the ridiculous media storm that was created by a group of parents protesting that a girl be home schooled because of her peanut allergies. They didn’t bother talking to the school about the modifications or give anyone a chance to squash some of the ridiculous rumors… like with most mob mentality maniacs they just made assumptions, got each other riled up, made a big protesting stink and ultimately were like “Oh… my bad! All a big misunderstanding… sorry… everyone.. on the internet!” Ha! I love stuff like that!
Child with allergies
Makes my kid have to wash hands
What is the problem?
Child with dirty hands
Has the right to be filthy
Because I’m a turd.
I’m here with a sign
Because my kids wash their hands
I don’t have a clue.
Oops! My Peanut Bad!
Protested without a clue!
I’m a big douche bag!
So that is why you do your research before you raise a ruckus and make a jackass out of yourself. Why? Because there is someone out there… like me… that might just have to poke fun at you in a haiku.
Want to poke fun or inspire Japan relief?! Add your Hump Day Haiku too!
This idea came from a good friend of mine Trista (Obachan’s Flowers) and I messing around on facebook with insulting Haiku. We have way too much fun bantering back and forth and jabbing at each other’s shortcomings. I of course have none! I thought that we really need to make Haiku a regular thing! I’ve always had a love for poetry and especially Haiku since I was a young child. Now, the added twist of making them either funny, insulting or sarcastic just makes them all the more appealing. I encourage you all to participate! Make Humpday Haiku a part of your blog and/or leave a comment of yours!
Now, what is a Haiku exactly?
It is a poem consisting of 17 moras in three phrases of 5, 7, 5. They are usually explained as having 17 syllables but that isn’t exactly accurate. In the states we usually write them in three lines while traditionally they were written in one vertical line that took the shape of the subject matter… usually nature!
So here are my Hump Day Haiku for this week!
Parents are perfect
That is what “they” all expect
But “they” have no kids
People bitch too much!
This bitch doesn’t speak Whinese!
Use your normal voice!
Trista no likey
my haiku format. Funny.
She bok like big bird.
Bok bok chicken legs
Oh so tasty on my plate.
Not on naked man.
