~ Haiku Game XXl ~

Enhances the fun
And starts the ole ball rolling
Adult icebreakers

Adult icebreakers
Mostly have that same "come on"
Heyyy whatever works!

Heyyy whatever works
Said the spider to the fly
Webs are sticky things

Webs are sticky things
when they're woven with deceit
Strands that fall apart...

Strands that fall apart
Shoddy material in
Cheap knock-off jeans

Cheap knock-off jeans
allures the less discerning
but soon fades with time...

But soon fades with time
That wonderful "new car" smell
Becomes just a smell

Becomes just a smell
that reeks clouds to the "nosey"
Odoriferous

Odoriferous
Like salt water mud flats
When the tide goes out

When the tide goes out
Riding there upon it's waves
Secrets of the sea...

Secrets of the sea
Whisper in the blowing spume
Shout in the surf's roar

Shout in the surf's roar
Avast! Hold still the torrents
That rageth within...

That rageth within
Shows in the face and the eyes
Sometimes it's scary

Sometimes it's scary
When folks follow and believe
Political hype...

Political hype
Is like thunder in a storm
Noise with no substance

Noise with no substance
Words spoken by the shallow
Empty promises...

Empty promises
Can never be filled
Like bottomless cups

Like bottomless cups
or lies that don't "hold water"
They're known as "whoppers"

They're known as "whoppers"
"Big Macs" or a "Big Buford"
Pick your own poison

Pick your own poison
Or deny your wild urges
Strength versus weakness

Strength versus weakness
Doesn't seem a fair match up
How can weakness win?

How can weakness win?
Is a question seldom asked
By the truly brave...

By the truly brave
And the foolish, reason is not
A thing considered

A thing considered
Important, developing...
Good Karmic aura

Good Karmic aura
Spreads light and warmth to the world
A candle at night

A candle at night
shinning alone, can it reach
The heart's dark corners...?

The heart's dark corners
Are filled with regret and pain
Sweep them out daily

Sweep them out daily
Or rue accumulation
And added labor...

And added labor
Makes the heart grow fonder
For the old easy chair

For the old easy chair
Offers it's refuge with care
from toil and despair

From toil and despair
Comes strength and mental toughness
Real good is hard earned

Real good is hard earned
And for so very many
Unattainable

Unattainable
Most of your cherished desires
Unreachable goals

Unreachable goals
Ever taunting and teasing...
Like dancing phantoms

Like dancing phantoms
Our thoughts struggle for life
In reality

In reality
Where dreamers often awake
There is no escape...

There is no escape
From time's relentless progress
It seems to speed up

It seems to speed up
Within dancing gusts of wind
Mid-Summer wildfires...

Mid-Summer wildfires
Gambol through the dry brush like
Destructive children

Destructive children
Whose actions seem to reflect
Cries for attention

Cries for attention
Assail us from every side
Which ones should we heed?

Which ones should we heed?
Patterns of good or evil...?
They mark your life's path

They mark your life's path
The sign posts along the road
Dimly seen in mists

Dimly seen in mists
Hope struggles bravely for strength
Then falters and fades
