I am shocked to hear this G! :shock: Can't believe such people could be found here in the back room of the forum.

And then shot himself.
With a sharp gasp, he awoke.
It was just a dream.

Till it was over,
Silent they remained. And then,
Applause like thunder.

Geoffrey's dismal verse
portrays his haiku hatred,
but still makes me smile. :)
