Here's how it goes. . .the first line of the next person's haiku must be the same as the last line of the previous person's haiku. (My definition of haiku being just the 5-7-5 thing, not the complicated Japanese naturey thing.)

A crazy rabbit
On life's shadowed parlour track;
Oh! How stars fade fast.

Oh! How stars fade fast
And gnarled goblins dig the earth.
Under there, coal lies.

Under there, coal lies
Sleeping; on top, shadow men
Build shrines to nothing.

Build shrines to nothing
Alone in the wilderness
Where the palm tree nods.

I have such black thoughts.
Constant, springing from somewhere
I once was.
