This is so WONDERFUL! You know, there are crappy haiku's, there are deep and meaningful haiku's and then there's this. A very rare, humorous, clever, PERFECT one! LOVE IT! :):):)

I love this a lot! It shows the way society has evolved into using social media. Voted 5/5!

More real than solid earth;
And to these death does not mean decay,
But only another birth"

Hey, thanks for commenting on my poem! :) First of all, I really like this haiku. You perfectly describe where technology had brought us. A tweet really is kind of like the new haiku. Good job!

Well isn't this a tad too true. A humorous commentary on the state of affairs in this world.

This is funny and well-written, even for a haiky. But it is also a very insightful reflection on what our current society values. Good work.
