Canberra cafe haikus – trust me, they’re a thing

By Alexandra Craig - 18 August 2015 9

mr morris canberra cafe haiku

I love seeing original, creative ideas – particularly when they’re local.

I was alerted to an instagram account recently, @canberracafehaiku. The name pretty much sums it up – it’s an account dedicated to humorous haikus about Canberra cafes.

The cafes featured are mostly from areas like Braddon, New Acton, and Manuka, but the Ainslie IGA also makes an appearance, as does Tilley’s in Lyneham and even some random entries like McCafe and 7/11.

There’s no suggestion as to who is behind the page or if it’s one person or a few that come up with these hilarious and accurate little pieces.

I was never good at writing haikus in my Japanese class at school, but I gave it a go:

Local Press

Trendy Kingston shore
High consumption of kale juice
Too healthy for me

My Rainbow Dreams

What even is this
Vegan coffee and goodies
Some hygiene concerns

Think you can do better? I have no doubt you can! Submit your Canberra cafe (or place) haikus below!

What’s Your opinion?

LIGHT RAIL REACTIONARIES

Repeating nonsense

Empty heads object forever

Blow away when built

You might wish to ask
What on Earth is a Haiku?
Japanese nonsense!
