Sometimes I Don’t Rhymes: Ronovan Writes Haiku Challenge No. 253

Welcome to this week’s attempt at the Ronovan Writes Haiku Challenge prompt, a challenge which I set out to take very seriously while I’m writing this bit but normally degenerates into a shambolic waste of effort by the time we get to the important Haiku part.

This generally ends up being a case of wondering why you bothered clicking again, as if you were expecting anything different to the last time, and probably serves you right. A bit like eating a kebab on the way home from the pub.

Still, there’s always hope, and probably also some strangely unidentifiable ingredients.

This week’s prompt words are Slip and Tip. Bananas and restaurant staff immediately spring to mind, so perhaps there’s an amusing scenario involving both to be looked forward to.

Anyway, as is traditional at this point, I go into my mind palace now and come out with a few meaningful syllables strung together – or at least the correct number of them – and, if I remembered what I went in there for, there should be at least a few more words to read yet.

Ah, hang on, there’s a strong memory in here. Must be one I use quite a lot…


A Freudian slip
Compliment turns to insult
My tip is ‘Run quick’

Well, there you go.

Hunters of more meaningful and thought provoking Haiku’s in response to the same prompt words should now press this link and should probably have stayed there in the first place.
