Haiku

by mitch hamilton

Philosophical

A glass half empty

Some say the glass is half full

What is in the glass?

 

The alternative

When life handeth you lemons

Make whisky sours

 

With a little thought

An awful lot of words

Can be avoided

 

ManÕs best friend

Fills his life with shit

Typical

 

 

Judgemental

Fuzzy-headed thoughts

Just irritate my brain like

Feathers do my nose

Powerpoint Ranger

Reality arranger

Stranger to Danger

 

Boneheaded moron

Rambling, clueless chart-merchant

Buzzword-spewing fool

 

Romantic

Chaotic Woman

Rearranging all my stuff

So it canÕt be found

Clump-Clumping Woman

Oblivious to others

Never calls, Ōloud noiseĶ

 

 

Autobiographical

Hornpipes, jigs, and reels

JamesonÕs, pints of Guinness

Slip jigs, slides, no sleep

 

 

Material

Beautiful iPod

Neatly encapsulating

All of my music

 

 

Observational

Trailers and pickups

Tornado ruined Walmart

Retail Darwinism

 

Will they ever learn

Trailers scattered everywhere

It is just a mess

 

Killed by a train

A sad life terminated

It just did not swerve

 

 

Topical

One handed typing

With no FBI agents

Internet safe sex
