Haiku

Mitch Hedberg

Alright, a haiku
Take it easy out there, Mitch
Watch out for bears, man

Entrepreneur

Professional sleepers
Sleep all day, sell the excess
Buy sleep for more hours

Chirp

On the brink of sleep
Occasional but loud chirp
Stupid smoke alarm

Time

Sometimes not enough
Sometimes more than you can bear
Let’s install a knob

Pimp-ku

A musician whore
Playing to please the masses
Fat wads of cash, though

P@ku

Tiny Irina
Will her bottle have Pepsi?
Good thing she’s nursing

Rest

Time to get a bed
One third of our lives spent there
The futon won’t do

High-ku

Wait, how does it go?
How many syllables here?
Where’s the snack cakes, man?

Nectar of Life

We all need water
Without, we wither and die
Still cold down your pants

Cosmos

Space is much like life
Both beautiful and deadly
You must come equipped
