Ari writes short poems
They make think
I am glad this thread continues.

I'm the enemy. Cause I like to think, I like to read. I'm into freedom of speech and freedom of choice. I'm the kind if guy who wants to sit in a greasy spoon and think, "Gee, should I have the T-bone steak or the jumbo rack of barbecued ribs with the side order of gravy fries?" I want high cholesterol. I want to eat bacon, butter and buckets of cheese, okay? I want to smoke a Cuban cigar the size of Cincinnati in a non-smoking section. I wanna run through the streets naked with green Jello all over my body reading Playboy magazine. Why? Because I suddenly might feel the need to. Okay, pal?-Denis Leary Demolition Man 1993

From time to time I get my way.
A lapse in madness allows me to to stay.
Wherein I find a song or two,
But amidst the chaos nothing is true.

So, I stumble ragged and broken
Gained only wisdom, as the Gods have spoken.
Yet I resolve again with the moon
To return to the battle, a quaint little loon.

Tell me your secrets! I cried to the stars
Tell me your secrets! I deserve as much with these scars.
No poem was written with any new truth
Fancied, had I, myself quite the sleuth.

A secret is power said a pirate to I
A colleague of a Madman, this Pirate to I
Rocked by the waves of old broken codes,
Were secrets of death and stories untold.

Still gathered in ashes, I reach for my pen
To scribble on the madness of still mortal men.
Never a mystery have I refused to seek
Magik is of no use to men who are meek.

Alas, it rang true, rained down from the sky
The cost of the spell was the Pirate's right eye.
I give up to you, a wisdom I keep
Learn from a Master, or go back to sleep.

I sit somewhere between the Sun and the Earth

That everything he said was
and that's where it stays.

Today is much like yesterday.
Passage of time on a Ferris wheel.
Change without changing.

He wrote to himself today
he gave a name
and to him it gave the day

I am hoping people are recognizing these as haikus. XD

It is certainly an excellent example of a haiku.
