Hrmm, first of all it would be good to respond respectfully, we don't to start a flame war.

Second of all, nobody mentioned that Kimigayo (1.) was a haiku, (2.) contained 17 syllables, I said that it contains 17 *WORDS*.

You're wrong, the national anthem is Tanka not Haiku

Kimiga yo

wa Chiyoni Yachiyoni

Sazareishi no

Iwao to narite

Koke no musumade

Tanka for your info is 5 lines and 31 sylables. and Haiku is 3 lines and 17 sylables
