The exercise:

Two haiku about: overtime.

It took a Vancouver goal with 14 seconds left in the third period to tie the game up, and a crazy bounce that led to the winning goal in double overtime, but the Canucks are going to the Stanley Cup Finals.

So. Happy.

Mine:

I should be home now,
my work over and done with.
At least the pay rocks.

Oh my dear Canucks,
I think that it's safe to say:
I'm good for grey hairs.

The Canucks are really making it exciting this season then! Let's hope they win the Stanley Cup now!

I think I've been where your first haiku is, but these days I'm a lot more interested in quality of life than pay. As, I suspect, are you :)

Overtime
Unpaid overtime
Is called a "choice" by my boss.
It's mandatory.

I hate your chicken,
It's far too herby for me.
I am over thyme.

Greg - your suspicion is quite correct :)

Over thyme. Why didn't I see that one coming? :P
