Haikus

I have this friend who
Dislikes free verse. He prefers
Verses with meter.

I told him that I
Do not understand these things
Called stressed syllables.

So he said to me
"Just count the syllables, then."
Counting I can do.

I enjoy dactylic hexameter myself, haha. Well, sort of... the only problem is that the Romans leave it to the reader to figure out where the accents go in each line. Vergil would be a lot easier in free style verse, lol.
