    Before anyone calls me a copy cat, may I note that I am the one who suggested this kind of thread to Vincent, and that I had plans to do this long before he ever did? Just saying...:p

    Please note that this poem isn't really supposed to be read as a Muppet character's voice:

    Porkpie Hat

    I can play the piano
    Wear a mustache
    Be a telephone Pole
    Or slip on the ice patch
    But telling a joke
    I could never do that
    Without my beloved
    Porkpie hat

    I can borrow a car
    Use a dummy
    Play a squire
    With a finger man chummy
    But knocking them down
    I could never do that
    Without my fantastic
    Porkpie hat

    I can hide from Berle
    Play Little John
    Sing a showtune
    Or be a lion
    But being funny
    I could never do that
    Without my trademark
    Porkpie hat

    This actually isn't all that great...but since I wrote it, I guess I'll put it up here anyway:

    Universal

    Sitting on a log, strumming a song
    Watching a reflection dance

    Reflecting on the signs, in the midst of a cave
    Dancing to an utmost song

    Poems don't have to rhyme. I do believe this was a Haiku.

    Poems don't have to rhyme...in fact, non-rhyming poems are actually my personal preference.

    That was not a Haiku. A haiku is a three line Japanese poem that's first line has 5 syllables, second line 7 syllables, and third line 5 syllables.
