In Haiku Hero Verisimilitude Is Rapidly Broken

Haiku Hero, first
Appears to be a nice game
Racing for poems

Against the clock you
Create a haiku within
The rules as given

It might tell you to
Use just two syllable words
And include, say, "bath"

It then assesses
If you met the rules in time
Then sets another

But I realised
Putting in any old crap
Would be accepted

"bothering elsewhere
panted yellow fortitude
buses escaping"

To which it replied
"That was a good haiku", which
I'm not sure is true

I think this will count
As one of Kieron's spoilers
Mechanically

Thanks go to TigSource
For spotting this one last week
You can play it here

(Yes I am aware
That Kieron posted this one
Before. I hate him)
