A hobnailed liver
Stops after the final gulp,
Turning you bone dry.

Thank you for your response.I hope you will also like the next batch of haikus.

Cheers, mate. Thanks for your nice comment. It's 2 syllables.
Dry not good, but love your Haiku. Need as many laughs on Booksie as possible.
Thank you for your comment. I hope it inspires people to write more light verse.
Very nice Bert, nice choice of words and keeping it light.
I see you enjoy this form as well :)
I'm glad you liked it. I do enjoy writing poetry in the haiku form, especially for all kinds of comments and light verse. The number of people who write Haikus on Booksie is very encouraging, because in my country it seems to be a form on its way out, which is a shame.
I enjoy it because it challenges me to make the point instantly. I wrote on an iPhone, so unfortunately, it does not create the proper format. Although I read on the past haiku was written in one line format.
Why is it on it's way out?
It is no longer popular in the Netherlands, because it is associated with the seventies and eighties when the genre used to be popular. Anything having to do with the seventies is regarded to be a bit iffy. This seems a logical reaction to the fact that anything coming from te sixties is regarded to be extremely valuable, as if the sixties didn't produce a lot of rubbish besides the things that are worth our attention.
