    cager frustration haikus

    Here is your chance to vent about cagers and share with others!

    A haiku should have 5 syllables in the first line, 7 in the second, and 5 is the last. Somewhere, there should be a seasonal or seasonal specific reference.

    Here's mine:

    Diesel fumes in the
    Cold autumn air, I pedal
    With dinosaur cars.

    I don't stop for signs.
    I don't stop for traffic lights.
    I stop for coffee.

    We have no seasons.
    Is cager slang for driver?
    I wrote two haikus!

    Seasons, bikes and automobiles are too many subjects to fit into 17 syllables.

    From the car driver's perspective:

    Left my cul de sac
    Talking on an urgent call
    One less bike out there
    Don't waste your breath to save your face when you have done your best.

    What are they doing? Why do they come here? Some kind of instinct. Memory, of what they used to do. This was an important place in their lives.

    Falling of the leaves,
    Falling of the bicyclist
    My knee bleeds bright red

    Fat ass redneck drives
    Cold wind of rage in his heart
    His beer bottle flies

    Hmmm, need to work on this a little more. My first haikus.

    Birds sing at sunrise
    Car passes within inches
    Do not give finger

    Glass shards in the night
    Make the bridge glittering bright
    Flat tire in the rain

    Even when bad drivers
    Suffer their wretched lifestyle
    I arrive smiling

    The truck cuts me off
    Is my health insurance paid?
    Time for a new bike

    I love haiku, man
    It's been a while since I wrote
    Too long, I'm afraid

    The sun brightly shines
    The pavement glistens like stars
    What was I saying?

    Cars pass in a wave
    I am in my element
    Do they have a clue?

    Truck stealing my breath
    Waiting on some fresher air
    Ahh, that's better, now

    Why don't I fit in?
    Am I that much different?
    But of course, I am.

    You are the leader
    I am the rebellious one
    Should you follow me?

    What I do, I love
    What I love, I do more of
    Is that what you do?

    Don't follow the crowd
    Swimming downstream is easy
    Try standing up, now
    No worries

    Big Benz roars aloud
    unworthy pedaller slows
    and moves to the left
    Without deviation from the norm, 'progress' is not possible.

    God d**ned traffic sucks a**
    Son of a b***h cut me off
    Pump him full of lead

    These f**king bikers
    Be passing me at the light
    I'm still waiting here

    If I catch up then
    Run these b***hes over
    Mofo traffic here

    Oh d**n it, f**k me!
    Yeah, you over there, f**k you!
    D**n it, f**k all y'all!

    I think that pretty much realistically sums up the frustrations of a driver stuck in traffic.

    Just thought I'd resurrect this thread to inform you poet laureates about something some of you may already know about. Bicyling magazine's 2005 contest is haiku (until April 30). Win a $4,999.00 bike of your choice if your haiku is deemed supreme.

    An old Ford Bronco
    "Oh my God, are you OK?"
    Get up and ride home.

    EDIT:
    Wasn't a haiku
    Fixed with BikeForums' edit
    No need to worry.
