| My life is crashing
nonsense and shattering noise
|Posted by: Keita-chan Mar 3 2004, 01:42 PM|
| The fire is put out.
Freaky goth girl at the door.
Waugh! It's Erika!
The fire has finally gone away.
And Ping from her school is astray.
And as for Largo's pants,
Without them he'd dance
But Erika's coming their way.
|Posted by: Garran Mar 3 2004, 02:47 PM|
I always say "Live
And let live" to fangirls, but
I don't think Piro
Finds Largo without pants to
Be a sexy distraction. :-)

| Some quiet mornings,
time stands still. This is not one.
My hair smells like smoke.
|Posted by: Damion Requiem Mar 3 2004, 04:35 PM|
| Mire'd confusion.
Sakura seem to fall up
As life crashes down.
|Posted by: snark Mar 3 2004, 04:47 PM|
Probably meant Erika
At least, I hope so.
I remember his comment
About the web-cam melting.
|Posted by: Shoka Mar 3 2004, 04:56 PM|
| who are these people?
not larry, moe, and curly -
three other stooges.
Though his wits Piro tried to regroup,
When he answered the door it was moot;
It was Erika knocking
In frills, bows and stockings;
Dear gods, she’s aggressively cute!
ph34r, ph1r3, and a ph3mm3 ph4t4l3;
what a way to start your day!
|Posted by: seyosama Mar 3 2004, 05:32 PM|
| Alas for the poor sap who finds,
Himself in a nude Largo bind;
Ping's school-going will;
And Erika's frills;
For he'll end up with his tongue tied!
|Posted by: snark Mar 3 2004, 05:34 PM|
He's been rudely awoken from sleep,
Enough to make him want to weep,
Then a knock on the door
Drops his jaw to the floor,
And all he can manage is "Geep!"
|Posted by: Shoka Mar 3 2004, 05:49 PM|
Though “geep” was all Piro could stutter,
It is more than I’d manage to utter,
For such great pulchritude
Would, with all certitude,
Knock me down with a fatal heart flutter!
|Posted by: snark Mar 3 2004, 06:16 PM|
[!haiku]*sigh* Keeping up with Skoka is difficult... *searches dictionary for pulchritude* Oooohhhh...[/!haiku]
I detect a slight intimation
When hearing your claim of prostration;
It sounds like a ploy
'Caus you want to enjoy
Please forgive, my post
May have offended someone
It was not meant to

[!haiku]pinocchian reference coming up...[/!haiku]
I am shocked, snark, that you would suppose
That my fainting would just be a pose!
Why, I never would use
Such an ecchi-type ruse -
This I swear by the length of my nose!
as for keeping up,
you are doing just fine, snark -
this is lots o' fun!
|Posted by: phaedrus Mar 3 2004, 07:06 PM|
[!haiku] mae westian reference coming up [/!haiku]
Erika, I'm sure you'd agree
would most likely respond with great glee:
"Prepare sir, to die,
for your nose says you lie.
Or are you just glad to see me?"
|Posted by: Shoka Mar 3 2004, 07:20 PM|
[!haiku]*manages to stop laughing long enough to post some doggerel*[/!haiku]
“Ah goddess,” I’d say, “I am shudderin’;
“It’s my happiness that you see putterin’!”
Though most likely my doom
Would be signaled quite soon
By a scream of penultimate sufferin’.
Edit: oops...forgot the tags.^^
|Posted by: Hetz Mar 3 2004, 07:32 PM|
| [irish]Shoka you would more likely be in Erika's heart
so you should not worry whether she'd tear you apart
but as you're lying on the floor
Largo might come to the door
and then the violence would surly start[irish]
|Posted by: snark Mar 3 2004, 07:34 PM|
| [irish haiku]
My response will have to be terse:
I'm laughing too much at your verse.
So I'll simply state
I think you guys are great,
And I hope my condition gets worse!
|Posted by: Shoka Mar 3 2004, 07:45 PM|
These verse volleys have been great fun
And they sure gave me laughs by the ton,
But I’ve dinner to cook,
So it’s time that I took,
My leave of you all - gotta run!^^
|Posted by: Damion Requiem Mar 3 2004, 07:49 PM|
| [Irish haiku]
In skill, I feel worlds apart
I don't know if I should bother to start
For it would seem like a joke, ah,
For trying to keep up with Shoka
Is like trying to match Shadow in art!
|Posted by: BigDemonicBunny Mar 3 2004, 07:54 PM|
Though his mind is honed and filled with much wit
His tounge so sharp it can a hair split
His fate will be grim
She'll tear limb from limb
Naught but a shoe will be left of his kit
|Posted by: 1n50mn14c Mar 3 2004, 09:42 PM|
| The fire is out but
Ping has to go to school and
Largo has no pants
|Posted by: EarthStarFan Mar 3 2004, 11:44 PM|
| Chaos consumes all
Only ash statues remain;
With wind, start anew
In a house where chaos can't be bound
A great pattern, it seems, has been found
When things become terse
And can't seem to go worse
A cute lady will come knockin' round
(Not to say that this is a bad thing--
You see, coffee and dinner they bring.
But when Largo's unclothed
Every good fanboy knows
Stay away, or she'll break off your wing.)
[!haiku] . . . okay, haven't done the Irish Haiku thing in a while. ^^; I'll get the hang of it . . . [/!haiku]

| When hurricanes roar
and earth quakes, remember that
it could be worse!
Fire raises her fine
head within the apartment.
Is this a curse?
Lo, the tempest is
upon our gates! One false move
and you'll need a hearse.
However, how fair
does this tempest look! How do
they say? Hello Nurse!
Opt reveals that Ping
Still wears that old shirt, perhaps
they should open their purse...
[!haiku] I had a few more ideas but ... I forget, too many things at once ^^;[/!haiku]

| [!haiku] Every time I read one of Shoka's limericks, I hesitate in posting; he's too damn good! Oh well, here goes anyway. [/!haiku]
Piro's day's started stressfully enough:
Flaming pants and smoldering stuff.
Ping's clothes on the floor—
Erika's at the door!—
Having roommates like this makes life tough!
|Posted by: snark Mar 4 2004, 03:48 PM|
[!haiku]I know what you mean - the !penguin has m4d v3rs3 sk1llz[/!haiku]
So far, a very bad morning,
Fire struck without any warning.
But Piro will learn,
Life takes a new turn,
With every new day that is dawning.
It seems that he cannot believe
Whom he opened the door to receive,
He quivers in ph34r
For 'tis Erika there
But has Largo earnt a reprieve?
|Posted by: masamage Mar 4 2004, 09:42 PM|
So the day begins. Clothing
Is a thing of strife.
Knock, knock! Erika
Is here. A conflagration!
Now /that/'s how to dress.
This thread is hilarious. :D
