Are haikus too long, too short, or just right?

i've always loved the haiku form, but i'm beginning to feel the form is too long. some haikus ramble on and on and on beyond two lines.

to be truly concise, a poem ought to have a single line. 4 words in the line is do-able, but lazy. 3 words are better. 2 words are best -- although it's admittedly tough to write two words poems.
