smiley - coffeesmiley - donutsmiley - cool

I think the idea is fairly self-explanatory. I can't see any point supplying a topic, as the possibilities are already fairly restricted. Let's see.

Rules (such as they are): 5-7-5 (duh!), number of syllables may be those in the "Name" of the smiley as listed on the Smileys page OR, if you prefer, the number of syllables between the < and the >.

Subject - anything you like. But try and make it tell a story or make a point or something coherent. Just stringing smileys together in a 5-7-5 form does not a haiku make.

Any takers?

Interesting, isn't it, that when you start to try to actually string some thoughts together using just smileys, the subject of drink and it's effects seems to be a common thread...
