Haiku game

I can't find this game, so I'm restarting it. The rules are simple. Each post must be a haiku (except for such things as this introduction) and the first line must be exactly the same as the last line from the last poem. For example:

A knock at the door.
Here I stand with bated breath.
Oh, who can it be?

(That's a haiku: five syllables on the first line, then seven, then five.)
And the next poster responds with (for example):

Oh, who can it be
That would eat my chocolate cake?
I suspect a rat.

(And so on.)

To see talent shows.

"Straight on 'til morning"
Is how long I have to sleep
Until I wake up.
