15 People Confess Their Vices By Way of Haiku

Team Man Repeller Writes Haikus about Vices

One of the reasons I am so enamored with our monthly theme of Vices is that I think it is so fun for Man Repeller to be a respite from the self-improvement waters of the resolution sea that is January. Not that there’s anything wrong with self-improvement! I made a resolution or two myself, but sometimes you just want to feel okay about loving the stuff you love.

So in that spirit, I asked a few folks to write haikus to their vices: five, then seven, then five syllables parsing through, showing love, and sheepishly admitting to their habits they know they should leave behind, but simply can’t. Enjoy! And if you happen to be visited by the vice muses, feel free to wax poetic in the comments.
