A Bar Scene Haiku

Ok… here’s the thing. I don’t have a bar scene for the blogfest today. I KNOW, I know. I don’t really know what happened. I didn’t forget about it, I just haven’t written anything for it. And after you were all so dutiful with your murder scenes.

So, to ease the pain of my laziness, I’ve written a Bar Scene Haiku. Yes, this is a super lame substitute for an actual scene, but it’s all I’ve got. Enjoy.

“Beauty Reconsidered.” An original haiku by Anne Riley.

Pretty girl in bar.

She vomits on the table.

Not so pretty now.

    Short, sweet, directly to the point.

    I read your murder scene also. Man, am I glad I’m not flying anywhere soon; I’d be wary of accepting anything from the attendants.

    Donna: Ha – I think I may have freaked some people out with my airplane setting 🙂 Just make sure you keep your feet planted firmly on the ground!

    I shall now write a haiku in your haiku’s honor:

    A lazy writer
    wrote haiku for bar-scene fest.
    Should’ve cheated, man.

    Er… Or how about this one?

    My cheated entry
    did double blogfest duty.
    Why couldn’t yours, Anne?

    *amuses self*

    *saunters off, whistling*

    If I was giving prizes for most original – you would win. That was amazing, and I haven’t even read the rest of the entries, lol.

    Super-lame my super-ass.

    That’s a great scene, my dear, and painfully witty. I often resort to haikus when I need quickies.

    Veddy nice, veddy nice.

    Sarajayne: Yes… yes, unfortunately this is probably a scene that occurs every single weekend in most bars around the world!

    Ya know, this might be my favorite entry! Very clever 🙂 I noticed you’re reading Incarceron, I’m SO excited to read it! Its on my TBR shelf. I hope you like it.

    Hey Lilah! I am liking it a lot. Although for some reason, I’m being a slow poke about finishing it – I’m not even halfway done yet. But it is so good!
