       I work for a well-known coffee company, and more than once have I been very tempted to hurl a 160 degree latte at someone's face.

    dotsA Haiku on Customer Service and Lifedots

    Frequently I want
    to say, "Dude........ seriously?"
    but I hold my tongue.

      5-7-5 maybe not but I thought it was funny. I work in customer service and I actually think the same of the customer. "Dude....seriously" are my thoughts often.

    I liked it! Write on!

      "Frequently I want
    every nice thing I see,
    but I know that's greed"

    ha. That would have been crap!

    But yours was cool imho.

    internet memes, they are not very poetic but...yes.

      this is a senryu but i'm not sure you wanted to know that... still, i'll say it (and yes, i've written hundreds of both).

    i've worked in cafes and restaurants before so i know this feeling well; i'm sure any front of house staff member will be able to read this and laugh... rather ironically.

    anyway, just a quick breeze through comment, really.

      Actually, that's wrong. To anyone who feels like commenting my haiku with criticisms regarding the standards of haikus: KNOW WHAT A [censored]ING HAIKU IS IN THE FIRST PLACE. THX!

      I think that a haiku must SAY something of possible interest to a reader, such as:-

    Frequently I want
    every nice thing I see,
    but I know that's greed.

    Have another think about your subject first, but be careful counting,--- the "every" I used above has 3 syllables for such a little word.

    3. How did it make you feel?
    4. Why did it make you feel that way?
    5. Which parts?
    6. What distracted from the piece?
    7. What was unclear?
    8. What does it remind you of?
    9. How could it be improved?

    11. What was your interpretation of it?
    12. Does it feel original?


    Be kind, take a few minutes to review the hard work of others <3
    It means a lot to them, as it does to you.
