Muffins and Croissants, originally uploaded by Lektrogirl.

It's a croissant fail.
So why do I still feel bad?
I saw it coming.

I thought my usual whinge should at least be turned into something more constructive and so I attempted a haiku. My [very absent] sub-editor Alex Torrance will be able to correct me I'm certain if I have also failed so bad it is a haiku fail. On wikipedia it said i should refer to the weather...??!

Yes, a haiku should contain a seasonal reference on the last line, it should also have a juxtapositional twist, contrasting an earlier statement.

Also because of the difference between English syllables and Japanese on, some writers of English haiku use between 10 and 14 syllables with no formal structure.

However some purists believe haiku doesn't translate outside of Japanese, and so you have written a pseudo-haiku or zappai.
