Haiku Friday: Your Alma Mater

Most of the streets in West University Place, like this one near the Rectory, are named after colleges and universities. Needless to say, I love this intersection.

West University Place

So let’s write haiku about institutions of higher education that have formed us — from the ACC to the Ivy League, and even the School of Hard Knocks, which confers honorary degrees on most of humanity a little too prolifically.

Although real haiku can be flexible about some things, let’s stick with the Willard rules of one stanza only, consisting of five syllables in the first line, seven syllables in the second line, and five syllables in the third line. Here’s mine:

I’m proud to be a
Demon Deacon in the land
of “Hook ’em Horns.” Ouch!

Share yours in the comments. Heck, you don’t even have to use your real name, just your imagination!
