Today's Ride Report in Haiku

Played hooky from work
Rode a sweet, slow century
Now I'm drinking wine.

Though sun and blue sky
Beckon me to the bike path,
My bike is stolen.

Work will wait for a day
I hope you had a tailwind
A nice cabernet?

Deep in the bowels of your employer,
A bean tallying gnome
has uncovered: an inconsistency in attendance.
AlarmAlarmAlarmAlarmAlarmAlarmAlarm...............

Yet all you heard...
The hum of early autumn,
the whisper of passing pavement.

Five syllables here,

Humor, too, can dwell,
In forum so late at night.
Too much time on hands.

Come morning I ride,
Save some gas, leave small footprint.
Arrive at work, wet.

After work, ride home.
Hot shower, get on the scale.
Hmmm... no change - big butt.

Dimples on big butt.
Bad dimples, must go away.
Shirley Temple Butt.

The sun shines outside.
I am chained to my desk.
Cold tears fall down my face.

On-topic for haikus. (Off-topic for bikes) This is the funniest collection of haikus I've ever seen: haiku's for newly neutered dog Warning: some are a bit off-color.

The shop screwed up the order

Fog was blowing in
I pedaled over flats and hills
Spinning smoothly up

I hate poetry. I'm not a fan of this stuff. And yet, you all are totally cracking me up. Well done. Carry on.

Roses are red
Violets are blue
Tom doesn't do Haiku
And neither should you

Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
You were voted off once,
Don't make this number two.
