Haiku Friday: Graduation Time!

It's really the only time in life that you wear a flat hat, really.

But it's much more than that, of course. Commencement-- from high school, college, kindergarten, grad school, whatever-- really does feel significant. Let's haiku about that this week. Here, I will go first:

It never looks right
I am not meant to wear hoods
So many bad pics....

Now it is is your turn! Just use the 5/7/5 syllable pattern, and have some fun!

Ever notice that
Rich kids don't have commencement
For kindergarten?
I never got there
But I'm grateful for my life
Without a flat hat!
Grad flat hats give you
the worst of all conditions:
The scourge of hat hair!

Oh, please do sit down!
It’s hot, and your speech bores us.
A party awaits!
Forgot how to walk
When they called my name. Awkward
Shuffle did the trick.
Wearing the flat hat,
Praying for just one small thing --
please say my name right.
Nineteen eighty-three
Walked the Lawn with Ralph Sampson
Family looked his way!
