Best haiku ever

I received an email advertising 826LA's summer writing courses for kids. It includes this haiku by Anthony Vasquez, age 6:


Wolves like to AH-OOOOOH
They like to eat people and
Play guitar softly

The summer courses sound great. For example:
Write Your Own Detective Series

Students ages 8 to 11 will collectively create one adventurous main character and then write their own detective mystery stories for the series. At the end of 4 weeks, we'll have a detective series filled with all those important mystery elements: clues, plot twists, and more! If you've got a closetful of red herrings to share, please, do tell and sign up to help.
