Christmas Haiku

Christmas haiku post
Neal asked for it days ago
Here it is but late

[Guest Haiku by Neal Latt]:

Woke up this morning
Rushed over to my laptop
No haiku.  Let-down.

Coal in my stocking
Verses bubbling out my head
No where to go now.

Trudging through the snow
Arkleyville cold, desolate:
Lance, Brady, Newman.

    The hook of greed set
    solvent plume migrates slowly
    We stand by and watch

    The money will trickle down
    One thousand new jobs

    Storm clouds rumble deep
    November’s bitter lesson
    The remedy brews

    the sadness of politics.

    One thousand jobs
    so they say
    it still looks gray.

    A fuzzy number
    at best
    so shall we pray?

    Hold your breath and count to ten.
    Arkley’s human too.

    Stickers everywhere.
    “Mean people suck” — one moment please.
    Who is mean? And why?

    Hey you promised us
    The marina center now
    Were you just lying?

    Did you make it up?
    You played to our emotions
    Fell for a sales pitch

    Who can we turn to
    Representatives of who
    Have we lost our teeth?

    No, we do not bite
    By and for us, the people
    We lead ourselves now

    8:58 you have no appreciation for an ancient art form. Of course, you could question whether what we do to it is ART, but that’s another argument altogether. Relax. Enjoy. Maybe some wine with your Haiku?

    Sit still and hear it
    as the Haiku form sings its song
    truth is unfolding

    A Ukiah Haiku
    (a palindromic haiku dedicated to the revenue generating wing of the CHP)

    Ukiah Haiku.
