Momku, Liloku and Other Hybrids

If there's poetic one form with continual resurgence online, it's the haiku. Last year Kevin Guilfoile brought us his tongue-in-cheek LiLoKu poetry, wherein Lindsay Lohan quotes are rendered in verse. Not 5-7-5 exactly, but you get the idea. 

Recently Alana Reynolds has created "momku" on Twitter: daily haiku on the topic of motherhood. 

An example:

I'm Catholic, husband
is Jewish. So our kids are
being raised Guilty
