Passover Haikus -- An In-Transit Project

Tiny Specks of Dust
Hiding in my Books and Shoes.
Burn Chametz, Oh Burn!

Oh, Plagues a'plenty!
I Lament and Nosh Matzo.
Pass the Maror, Please.

Manishewitz, Why?
We Need More Maxwell House Now.
Product Placement; Oy.

Sea of Reeds, Red Sea,
Tambourines Shake, Ladies Dance,
Pre-Exodus Rave.

Sixth Plague, Boils and Puss.
Alicia Silverstone
Says Milk is Puss, Ew.

I've only just begun. I kind of want to write 40 of them, actually. 
Stay tuned for more (and write your own!).

Haha. I haven't written haiku in years. I really like yours! Excited to read the remaining 35. ;) I guess I can write one from the perspective of a convert-in-progress who isn't afforded the experience of a real Pesach this year...

Burn my bread? I though
My toaster did that just fine
G-d bless men's cooking*

@Tzach The hardest thing about Pesach (and the other chagim) is that they're only once a year, lol. It isn't like Shabbat, which you learn quickly (the prayers, halakos, etc). This is only, technically, my fourth or fifth Pesach, so each year is a challenge at this point! Love your Haiku :D

@Alia That's a really beautiful Haiku ... really beautiful. Thank you!
