Crafting The Best THON Haikus

The wee hours at the Bryce Jordan Center are upon us.

As we enter the true depth of Saturday morning, we figured you might need some peace and tranquillity. To help you through the first night of THON, we’ve crafted some THON-inspired Haiku poems.

For those who don’t know, a Haiku is a Japanese style of poem. Every poem is three lines long, and the first line has five syllables, the second line has seven syllables, and the final line has five syllables.

Without further ado, here are our THON haikus.

Bubbles in the air

Shining with colorful grace.

They bring us much joy.

From up on press row

I see a big banana.

It is a costume.

This year is special,

Treasure Every Adventure.

I like the dragon.

Oh wait, what is that?

The stage has a Subway ad.

That’s interesting.

Giant Greek Letters.

They always bob up and down.

Some have LEDs.

We dance for the kids.

Oh, what a great cause this is.

THON is amazing.

One in the morning,

I am writing THON haikus.

A meta poem.
