Not to be a total fucking asshole, but a haiku ain't no ode:
ode n.
1. A lyric poem of some length, usually of a serious or meditative nature and having an elevated style and formal stanzaic structure.
1. A choric song of classical Greece, often accompanied by a dance and performed at a public festival or as part of a drama.
2. A classical Greek poem modeled on the choric ode and usually having a three-part structure consisting of a strophe, an antistrophe, and an epode.

The name of the haiku is "Ode to a Nugget" I did not mean to suggest that the haiku was an ode. It is not. It's a haiku. That's why I included the parenthetical information. I was alluding to the famous "Ode to a Grecian Urn" ode--a tip of the hat if you will, to that peom we were forced to read in high school English. Granted, it would be confusing if I would have written an ode and then called it "Haiku to a Nugget" but there you have it.
