The Babadook or Cuca: More Internet Haikus

feature image via Sítio do Picapau Amarelo youtube

well, LGBTs
the babadook or cuca
i’m going cuca

the floor is good takes
*business insider jump splits*
*forbes runs up the wall*

are millennials
killing the sport of baseball
and other bad things

that’s my favorite part
like blood diamonds and tide pods
are on par with bees

what layer of hell
is craigslist’s housing section
what penance is owed

best reply caption
and it works with everything
is just the word ‘why’

aggregated posts
they’re a bold look to be sure
free labor’s en vogue

could aggregation
work in academia
oh is that research

here’s a fun idea
mass text your tinder matches
boom, pop up gay bar

what wouldn’t age well
in the modern meme era
are the ‘got milk?’ ads

it’s adorable
people hearting to and fro
like it’s not public

that age old question
of can you ever go home
but for logging off

are there loyalists
like “i’m team common white girl”
and “no i’m dory”

what would you rather
instagram habits revealed
or bank account drained

the silver lining
of the new state of twitter
is i work out now

stress exercising
thanks, internet news cycle
would buy from again

when you think you’re slick
and your date sends a screenshot
of your latest tweet

what’s going to happen
when 4-5 hits 69
you’re all in my thoughts

amazon wish list
link in bio kind of girls
you inspire me

  1. I love these and was inspired to write some myself (they just aren’t as good at all, but I have to post them here, bc if not here, where?):

    – I’m too insecure / to date unenthused texters / exclamation points!

    – two questions emailed / so why only answer one? / makes it p awkward

    – you insta three pics / all at once! What do I do / like all, look obsessed?

    – phone awake in hand / what will I like by mistake / a timeless cheap thrill

    – better get married / before the hashtags run out / hot commodities

    – ‘you up’ lost meaning / in the age of messenger / fuck a ‘last active…’
