Broke-Ass Haiku: French Girls
So we at Broke Ass HQ, like many of you, often spend time shooting the shit and coming up with new ideas to make you laugh, cry, save money and live your life. The haiku, a Japanese form of poetry, is a beautiful and simplistic way to show your affection [try it on your girlfriend sometime when you can’t afford dinner] or contempt for something in a succinct and perfect pattern. Three lines, 17 syllables and a whole lot of potential, the haiku is gaining momentum. Consider it old school twitter (speaking of which, add us here).
Naturally, I had to pick an item that was well-known and loved by many of our staff and readers (ahem…I mean Stuart), so French Girls was a natural choice, especially since Amelie is playing in Dolores Park tonight. Expect one of these once a week or so '” I’m addicted!
I came here so broke
I can’t buy you a drink but
Money can’t buy love
PS: Stay tuned for a possible new exciting column involving the subject of this haiku (Pssst…this is what I consider foreshadowing….I’m going to France!)!
