Back Off in #Haiku. 10/16/14.

[I understand sometimes it can be hard to catch when I’m making fun of something and when the original post actually says something better than I can with just seventeen syllables. I think this might be one of those days where you’ll want to check the source materials, Backtalk in the Lowell Sun and Sound Off in the Lawrence Eagle Tribune. Normally though I sum things up pretty well. Enjoy.]

Backtalk:

Obama takes guns.
Gives us Ebola instead.
Tinfoil hat unstrapped.

Baker likes sick time.
But not for small businesses.
Sneeze in my omelette.

Too many detours.
Ten minutes added to commute.
Someone’s gonna pay.

Murphy’s replacement.
18th Middlesex District.
Needs to malleable.

Corey Belanger.
Got us 17 million.
Now fix the damn bridge.

Sound Off

Learn to speak Spanish.
Or stay out of bodegas.
eso tan difícil?

Plaistow train station.
We voted no already.
Keep the Massholes out.

Malone did her job.
Superintendents get bucks.
Don’t need accolades.

Birth control costs.
WalMart and Hobby Lobby.
Better than you think.

The right hates workers.
They’ll never help you at all.
Stop voting for them.

Gen’ral Lafayette.
Gave us freedom from England.
Keep his statue clean.
