Haiku Challenge!!!

This challenge has ended!

You have a month to make up a haiku.
But, there is one requirement:
It MUST have some sort of twist at the end.
It doesn’t matter what it is, but it has to be surprising.
It could be funny, or disturbing. As long as it is surprising

For example:
He tends not to flinch
though I’m yelling in his ear
which is in my hand

Think you have what it takes to accept this challenge?

    What’s with all the challenges requiring sick endings/components? Not totally opposed to it, just don’t know if shock value has the same shocking quality after so many entries. Shrug.

    This probably sounds more aggressive than I meant it to.

Want to join in the fun? Of course you do!
