HAIKU.

Don’t you love haiku?
You just need three short verses.
It’s a cinch to do.

Why rant on and spew
An epic? You know terse is
What folks want from you.

No one wants what’s new:
Exactly the reverse is
Obviously true.

You know what to do:
Count beats and churn out verses.
Don’t you love haiku?

    I do love haiku,
    How it tickles my nose
    and makes me sneeze, Achoo!

      I know, I know, I miscount the last line (if not lines & 2) – dancing to the beat of a different drummer can have its disadvantages.

        It needs only a slight revision:

        I do love Haiku.
        How it tickles my nose and
        makes me sneeze, Achoo!

        There’s big money to be made in the business of copy-editing poetry.
