2. Sad Haiku

I wished it was mine
Sweet old red motor scooter
Paid the rent instead


(#2 in the 5-7-5 Alive project.)

As I continue to post my haikus, I'll note that they will likely disappoint any haiku purists. My haikus are more like tiny, prescribed pieces of prose rather than those which fit within the ancient artform. That said, I am still having fun sticking with the American haiku convention, where it's all about the 5-7-5 and the plural of "haiku" is "haikus". Haiku purists, please forgive me.
