"Baked beans are not
worthy of the great effot
of a true haiku

Not much is well
worthy of the great effort
of a true haiku

so as a seeker
of truth and all of that tosh,
what am I to do?"

5 syllables is
The required length to write
First lines of Haikus

Like snow upon Mount Fuji,
But nicer to eat.
