Fresh meat from Migros
all day long I dream off it
at night I am broke



And my favorite haiku :D:

Haikus are easy
But sometimes they dont make sense

Wibble, haiku rules:
five, seven, five syllables
Yours are too 'modern'



(One concession: OK, 'Baseler' can be pronounced 'basler'.)

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
