    Would be better if it were:

    I cannot have flaw: Speech Impediment (Haiku). Nor A Compulsion.

    • I will not create flow charts that catagorize the GM's NPCs.
    • I will not fix those flow charts so that all NPCs end up in the catagory "Mary Sue"
    • I will not encourage the party to form a line and make choo-choo noises when we think that the GM is railroading us back to the important plot point.

    As DM, my puzzles may not involve haiku, particularly if the answer is the only three lines that aren't actually a haiku.
    My answers to divinations may not involve limericks.
    Just because the spell description says I can give a 'cryptic response' doesn't mean I should.
    Particularly if the response is a poem.
    I am to ask someone else to write my poems answers to divinations and puzzles. Mine are "too hard."

    You realize that if enough of the doors so captioned are vigorously trapped and lead to very bad things (which may or may not include little-to-no loot) that the pavlov effect will eventually take hold.
