MG Haiku

I'm surprised we've never done any MG Haiku (at least not that I've found 
in the last couple years of archives).

Haiku is a traditional Japanese "poem" that is more zen-ish than 
rhyme-ish.  It has a very rigid format - a 17 syllable verse:  First line 
is 5 syllables, second is 7, last is (again) 5.


My convertible
Sits so still in my driveway
Lucas electrics


It seems to be stuck
Makes a god-awful squeal
That f*cking starter


Autumn leaves now fall
I thank God for overdrive
Speeding on curved roads


I love my MG
I would take it everywhere
Alas it seats two.


Always dripping oil
It doesn't go up in smoke
Leaks like my mother

And so forth.
