Are you too lazy for even a haiku?
Here's a perfect new form for you - the Trill.
A Trill is composed of three lines, with three words each.
If you have more to say,
you can add Trills together, but only in groups of threes.
So the basic unit, the Trill, is like a stanza.
Rhyming is optional.

3 lines = 1 Trill
3 Trills = 1 Trail (9 lines)
3 Trails = 1 Tra-La (27 lines)
If you are in a Homeric mood, 3 or more Tra-La's = 1 Trillion (81+ lines)

Here are a few examples:

The Trill Rule:
Everything in threes:
words, lines. stanzas.
