Need a reminder of what constitutes a haiku? The key is the 5, 7, 5 Syllable/beat/measure. Here are a few we Jobaclites have come up with to help get you started.
Stifled in my cube to die
Setting like the sun
Hired and fired
There’s nothing to do with time
Except search for work
A word where we join forces
And feel good at end
filled with you and me working
yet nothing gets done
