Did Rosencranz say about or ’bout? I don’t see him as the kind of guy who drops syllables.

I read the comics/. To rest from the stressful world/. but Hiaku are work!
We speak, we wait, sit
Wondering how time cuts us
Yet no insight gained
Life idle, no work
Begging for coins from workers
Deaf to winters cold
I much prefer Limericks to Haikus

Actually stopped over in the town of Limerick in ’68.
To all those who wrote / Comments not in haiku form / Shame lies upon you.

Wished to marry a lady named Phoebe
“But,” he said, "I must see
What the minister’s fee be,
Before Phoebe be Phoebe Beebee."

So sing me another verse
That’s worse than any other verse
Make sure that it’s foolish and silly.
