Today's Haiku: Construction

It's very difficult to concentrate at work these days because work crews are replacing all of the sprinkler system pipes on the floor beneath us. (I really don't want to know why the old pipes need to be replaced. Were they made of papier-mâché? No, no, don't tell me -- I don't want to know.)

Apparently, these workers are using jackhammers, F-16s or Metallica's bass player to install the new pipes. Maybe they aren't using any of these things, but they are really, really LOUD.

Yesterday, between the bangs, clangs and rumbles, I composed the following haiku:

It fuckin’ sounds like
A dentist’s drill in the floor.
So damn annoying.
