Deep Matthew, very deep.

We have funky IP phones at work (the same model that they have in 24) and you get to put full text lines on the speed dial.

I have a haiku on mine with each line representing a different speed-dial. The first one is my home phone number, my second is the mobile and the third is my mum and dad's:

At home, where I play
Or out on a pleasant day.
Parents, here to stay

The first one is my home phone number, my second is the mobile and the third is my mum and dad's (which used to say "parents far away" but they moved and ruined my poetry in the process.The challenge I set myself was to have a rhyming haiku which accurately represented my phone numbers. I had something different for the second line (I can't remember what) but someone pointed out that the second line is supposed to "invoke the imagery of a season". So I changed it.

I thought of another one:

Election's over
Howard's gone, so's Costello
Who will we hate now?
