Haiku-like poems lands barista a job

Zach Schulte, the 24-year-old barista and bartender who runs show-and-tell at Boots Bakery and Lounge, got his job six months ago with a haiku he submitted online, via Facebook.

Owner Alison Collins said she was impressed with his creativity.

“I don’t care about resumes,” she said. “I have these crazy questionnaires.”

A haiku is a short Japanese poem, which typically has 17 syllables – five in the first line, seven in the second, and five in the last.

Schulte’s doesn’t exactly follow that mold. But it got him at job at the bakery.

Here’s Schulte’s job-getting haiku-like poem about Boots:

My cats keep trying

To eat my vegan biscuits and sausage gravy

Tonight, dine on this vegan fettuccine with alfredo sauce … damn.
