Nah, haiku stinks. 
   
  There was a young fox (who rocks)
  Who invited an old dharma bear to box
  But the bear was quicker
  So no need to bicker
  Because we two have opened our lock(s).

          That's true. Poetry uses words and text, but does not necessarily 
depend on rationality. How about a haiku?

Young fox pokes old bear,
Bear smiles, revealing long fangs,
Fur flies, brown and red.

...Bill!
