  1. Thanks, guys! It was rather eerie how the haiku came about. I composed the first two lines on the way to work in the morning, but left it half-written on a post-it note, waiting for a stronger line to wrap it up with. Unfortunately, I discovered it by the end of the day. I would gladly trade the post back to undo the horror of the day and its aftermath.
