Bathroom poet

Earlier this week I had to pay a visit to the bathroom while I was having dinner at the Beehive and although this is not the first time I've read this particular haiku, I did think it was funny to see it scrawled at eye-level in front of the urinal. I am more accustomed to seeing various graffiti, the random phone number or epithet.

Haikus are easy
but sometimes they don’t make sense

What is an haiku? An haiku is a form of Japanese poetry, consisting of 17 syllables in three metrical phrases of 5, 7, and 5 syllables respectively.
