    You're a rockstar? Evolution, I argue. Misuse, on the other hand. Is sloppy and lazy. Ignorance is only bliss for the ignorant.

    I disagree - language evolves, misuse is just evolution.

    Your words were selected perfectly to convey your thoughts in haiku. Well done D.J.!

    I wish that people would Google or use a dictionary. Yet, in the humor community that would fit in well. An idea is born, hahaha . I wonder if I am guilty of it, hmmm.

    You're just quietly and casually writing these masterpieces in minature. Well done and very good point! I hate when words are misused and abused (Unless it's with good reason)

    Words are very traumatising. I'll leave it at that. Loved your Haiku!

    Is the wordplay here in the use of the word "rob" and that being traumatic? If so, once more, you impress me, D.J..
