The exercise:

Four hours of training this afternoon. In a room that was hot enough to kill off the weaker ones amongst us. I never would have guessed that this new program training was just a front for survival training. Who knows what the two hours of training on Friday will have in store for us?

Anyway. It's Two Haiku Tuesday. Let's write about: keep it simple.

Mine:

Those big words you use
Go sailing over my head...
Like, way over it.

*     *     *

Simple it could be,
theoretically. But
simple this is not.

Wow, that's not a good room. Sadly training often gets relegated to rooms that no-one else wants to use, and they're often too small for the number of attendees too. Perhaps you could make a point by dressing as Lawrence of Arabia for the next one?

I like the second haiku better, but partly because I suspect the first is implicit criticism of me.... :-P

Keep it simple

"It's so simple, look!"
You do twenty things too fast
and then pity me.

------

It's only simple
If explaining it takes less
time than doing it.

That's a fine idea - I shall go costume shopping tonight! And I definitely laughed out loud at your impression of my first haiku :D

Your first one is funny and your second one is equal parts funny and true. The combo wins it for me this time :)
