Backtalk in Haiku. 7/17/14.

image

[please note: Day 5. Where did the usual cranks go? Of the few messages today there’s no racism, only two people asking for the heads of an entire workforce, only one anti-environmentalist, and one person actually standing up for kids. This can’t be right. Or maybe it’s just always light on Thursday and they publish the things that have gotten backburnered. I don’t know, I haven’t been studying them that long. But again, no punchlines have been added. All I did was change the wording to fit the haiku form. I don’t know how serious any of these people are, so there is the possibility that this is satirizing satire or trolling. Probably not though. Visit the Sun’s page for original wording. http://www.lowellsun.com/opinion/ci_26164884/backtalk-7-17-2014 ]

Fireworks in Dracut.
Lots of folks lighting them late.
Replace all the cops.
-Dracut

Stop blaming the kids.
Old farts talked during a wake.
Kids were respectful.
-Tyngsboro

Pipeline through Dracut.
Four selectmen say ‘maybe.’
Perhaps it’s pretty.
-Dracut

Thumbs down to Congress.
Just replace all the bastards.
Ev’ry goddam one!
-Nashua
