Three haikus

So I like writing haikus, the ancient Japanese poetry form structured in three lines, with a syllable count of 5-7-5. It's hard to capture a thought in such a small package but that' gives way to tighter editing. I like that, as an editor. Finding the core of the sentiment, or the joke. No fluff.
I tend to write funny haikus, and usually about modern stuff. The old Japanese form requires at least one line about nature but I'm a lot more flexible than that. I like to play with the form in other ways too.
A sample of some of my haikus:
Self-published author
gets depressed, and sends himself
rejection letters
****
Auto-correct phone
How you confuse my lover!
"I want to...fork you?"
****
Where is Dave Chappelle?
We really need him right now
Comedy's lost god
And tomorrow, will share with you a three-word haiku I made awhile back!
