The exercise:

Write two haiku about: interview questions.

Alternatively: write two interview questions in haiku form.

Or, you know, one of each. Whatever. I'm tired.

Mine:

What would you do if
a client wanted you to
bury the body?

*     *     *

My greatest weakness?
Isn't it clear? I suck at
doing interviews.

How did interview questions end up as a prompt? Are you interviewing Max to see if he's good enough to work in the garden? :)
I like your first haiku better this week, but I can safely say that the only correct answer to that question (in an interview) is ask how deep the client wants the body buried.

Interview Questions
As Spring fades away
Some HR drone asks: Would you
Kill to get this job?

"Assume I'm blind, and
Sell me a sports car." I can't
Kick the sales habit.

[Kind of stuck with the acrostic this week, but I'm picturing an over-eager interview leaning forward urging the interviewers to ask more.]

I would have to agree, Greg. Ask how deep and maybe where to bury him.

Interview Questions:

Now for the next one,
I want you to be honest,
Why do you want us?

I believe that I’m
A great fit for this comp’ny.
And you have great eyes.

Greg - hah, I could just imagine how that particular interview would go.

Haha, 'Ask! Ask!' That *might* come across as a little overenthusiastic...

I think I like your first haiku best this week, but it's close. As per usual.

Ivy - (sorry, I'm catching up on comments and getting lazy... hope you don't mind me calling you Ivy)

Hah, enjoyed the unexpected twist in your final line. Very nicely done.
