tourists, you can’t hide

‘cause you stand up too early

before next train stop

  • Of course, with the reduction of the number of seats, and guys like that pictured yesterday, there is at least a 70% chance that this rule doesn't work.

    However, I don't know the rules of haiku.

  • At its simplest:

    1st line: five syllables
    2nd line: seven syllables
    3rd line: five syllables
