Haiku, as you may know, is a 5-7-5 form of poetry: five syllables, seven syllables, five syllables. Biden’s r-rated health reform headline from yesterday happens to contain seven syllables:
Biden speaking to the President: “This is a big ----ing deal.”
So we want you to use that as your middle line and put your five syllables before it and five syllables after it for your Joe Biden health reform haiku. Contribute your haiku below!
