My first Haiku

There seems to be a trend for people to pop bits of poetry on their blogs, and, never one to ignore a passing bandwagon, here's mine.

April's end gets closer:
Vote for Keefieboy on Toot,
Receive samosa.

Did u spot the subliminal message! Toot persists in making it impossible for Internet Explorer users to cast their votes, and I hear that the programmer responsible is slightly indisposed at the moment (not my doing, honest). But if you have Opera, Firefox, Safari etc, these should work. 3 or 4 votes gets us into the top ten. 20-odd makes us the winner. So, off you go, thank you very much and your bribe samosa is in the post.

From a Damas gift pack to a Samosa?
Budget restrictions, eh?

Lalit: see, haiku's have to have 5 syllabubs in the first and last lines, and seven in the middle. So a final line reading 'Receive Damas gift pack' is one syllable too many. Sorry.

Haiku?
More like HICCU(p).
Really keefieboy you expect us to fall for the samosa thing.
So tell us what kind of samosa it is. mutton/chicken or vegetable? Is it a punjabi samosa? Or those tiny triangle ones from the malbaari joints with chunks of indistinguishable or should that be indisting-sqisshable bits.
Nah nah!The cost of things are going up and I have to pay for the installments on my property on Palm Island. A samosa will not do this time. You want to be on the top you must BAY THE BRICE or return the "KOH-I-NOOR".

On residential development:
New apartment block.
New views for new residents
And nowhere to park.


On motoring:
On Sheikh Zayed Road
Flashy car flashing headlights:
"I'm above the Law."


On retailing:
In Karama souq
Loads of junk; merchants mutter,
"Wanna buy a watch?"


On helpdesks:
Technical Support:
"Why don't you leave me alone
and RTFM?"

I wrote them, and others, over the last year or so. Jusk knew they'd come in useful eventually.

Confession time: The haiku about Karama is not of my muse.

April passes. May stirs.
Samosas reach sell-by date.
Trumpets sadly toot.

Never mind.

Kaya: Take a look at www.acronymfinder.com

It might be loosely translated as 'Peruse the instructions'.
