The 2009 Preview (In Haiku)


Ah. The Haiku. You remember that in High School English. The simple 5 syllable-7 syllable-5 syllable poems that made every student feel like a weird combination of Yeats and Confucius. If you are any type of Auburn fans you’ve already read at least eight different “previews” of the upcoming season. Until now. The AUPPL is proud to present. The 2009 Season. In Haiku.
