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’m not good at haikus, so here’s a lymric.

    I’m here for this gay babadook,
    The thought has left me quite shook,
    A gay horror icon,
    That has me leave the lights on,
    Please don’t leave me forsook

  2. 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…’
