For Lala: The Smartass-free Communal Haiku Zone!

Lala, this one's for you.

5-7-5 as before, but hold the jokes.

Be serious now
Do not fark up these haiku
With your smartass lines


(Someone else has to start it, though. I lack the Serious Poet gene.)

The POINT, Sir Funky, is to have one itty bitty plot of sanctuary where poetry may blossom, free of punchlines.

It is just something that came up in intermonkey discussion, that if on the offchance, a few sentimental monkeys wish to create something sincere and earnest, they will have a "safe harbor" against the likes of me (and you!).

And with that, I hereby yield the floor to my distinguished colleagues ...

I like both! Interesting the different connotations of each word...
