    How will we all cope
    Without our daily haiku?
    Have to write our own.

      I would feel shame and satisfaction in equal measure if that were to be the outcome

    All well and good but they are part of my current prescription!

      I believe we can come to an arrangement

    Aaahhh, but can you really quit them? Saying you will is one thing, but actually stopping them is another. The most important word is “temporary”. That’s your loophole. We’ll see how long “temporary” is. 😊

    I don’t believe it: “Ah haiku, I just can’t seem to quit you.”

    When I hear amnesty it makes me think that the haiku will be granted some sort of safe harbor on your blog, so it doesn’t sound like anything will change at all.

    Amnesty means the Haiku’s are no longer guilty and you would welcome them back. First never thought they did anything all that bad and they haven’t left yet so there’s no need to welcome them back. This one doesn’t make much sense. I like that in a poem

    Laugh! What has frowning ever done for you?

      I’m sorry to disappoint but in this case ‘haiku amnesty’ is less than subtle manipulation of an idiom (admittedly a UK-specific idiom) so it does make sense on those terms. I will try to make less sense in future.
