In an awful bind

Trying to use the word ‘blind’

Nothing springs to mind

An ingenious way of telling the truth, Gerald. 🙂

Neigh, bonnie laad… a haiku mustn’t rhyme… unless thee be a rock ‘n’ roll westerner.

Well, there’s no reason why a haiku shouldn’t rhyme. It’s just that most don’t. In any case, this is technically not a haiku, because it doesn’t mention a season of the year. Therefore technically it’s a senryu.

Ah, I see what you’ve done there… “Spring” as a verb… rather clever…

If you are a rock ‘n’ roll westerner, then it’s possibly a hi-coo, rather than a haiku in a structured eastern sense. No spanking available I’m afraid.
