Never says sorry

Tells a story in
three lines; cuts out all yappers
who can't stop typing.

Discombobulate
we can lay it on a plate?
on nerves we can grate

Swiss expats take part
in forums, jeopardising
their paying day jobs

scoff'd on by veterans, but
sometimes successful

Wrong use of 'rebuff'
Get Cambridge dictionary
Then better haiku

;)

beautiful alpine
view, right outside my window
afternoon nap time

cow bells sound just like
weird swiss jazz - out of sych and
a bit discordant

i have too much time
on my hands, if i can sit
and write dumb haiku

in switzerland i
have to defrost the blasted
refrigerator
