Travel Haiku - Madness In Memphis

May in Memphis
the music steals our heart
the food our stomach

May in Memphis
we learn to take one thing
at a time

May in Memphis
the only thing we fear not functioning

May in Memphis
we go mad over
the festivals

May in Memphis
the month you can change
the last letter to D

May in Memphis means festivals. The Beale Street Music Festival from May 2 to 4 will feature big-name artists like Aretha Franklin, Santana, and The Roots. Next up, learn about the culture of this year's chosen country, Turkey, during International Week, with educational programs, performances, chef demonstrations, and art exhibits. And from May 15 to 17, save up your appetite for the World Championship Barbeque Cooking Contest where teams compete for the juiciest, tastiest grilled pork and the most outrageously decorated grill to win over $90,000 in prizes.

    It's not really a conventional haiku, it's too long to be one. But anyway I like it. Good job.
