To the tune of
"Moonlight in Vermont"

    *        *          *

 Analyzing form
 Anal poets' parlor games
 This song is haiku.

 Five beats to the line
 Seven next, then five again
 Doubtlessly haiku.

 This is the bridge and it makes a departure
 From verse form, but how could it not?
 Though it may scan and sound somewhat more Western
 There's still not a hint of a rhyme scheme.

 Catch a falling star
 Operators standing by
 Everything's haiku.
