A while back, I asked my friends on Facebook to create haiku from popular music. The concept was reinterpreting lyrics into a new art form. Ford Forkum and Justin Bog came up with great poems.

metaphorically

without peace of mind

Scarborough Fair, unless you
Need thyme for beef stew.

I look at you all
See the love there that’s sleeping
While the auto-tune kills
