Back Off in #Haiku. July 27th-August 1st, 2015

Haiku

Backtalk

Monday

George and his bucket.
Voted against improvements.
Hypocrite vandal.

Tax man gets letters.
Too many to sign receipts.
Not sure they got mine.

Brown’s versus Markey’s.
A war we’ll never see end.
Both sides are valid.

Olympics now gone.
More money for an old bridge.
We’ve gotten to it.

Tuesday

Monuments are nice.
But not really practical.
Business should come first.

Issue was addressed.
Though he skipped normal process.
Reward work ethic.

Speed limits vary.
Regardless of road issues.
Speeders pay no heed.

Anonymous calls.
Sometimes you spot who they are.
Agendas are known.

Wednesday

Olympic failure.
Hacks looking to stay busy.
Who will pay Deval?

Crowdfunder for George.
Help to pay the fines he got.
And buy him more paint.

Official neglect.
Brought to light by one man’s act.
Their response backfires.

Baseball fields empty.
Kids all inside with gadgets.
Stale air gives no life.

Granddaughter’s neclace.
Left behind in waiting room.
Thieves are all heartless.

Thursday

Olympics now gone.
Our tradition will remain.
Fix the bridge yearly.

George distorted truth.
Center would be done by now.
Throw him out of town.

Folk Fest home viewing.
Wasn’t quite as good this year.
Had to go watch live.

Give unused sick time.
Big bonus at end of year.
No carry overs.

Got mail receipt back.
Taxman always reads his mail.
Postman lied to you.

Those guys lie a lot.
Don’t trust either him or her.
Only trust Donald.

Friday

Pipeline meeting planned.
Monday at Dracut Senior’s.
All are invited.

Young Methuen cop.
Saluted procession.
Very respectful.

Parking cost was high.
Fifteen dollars during fest.
Those greedy bastards.

Boards remain open.
Nobody wants the headaches.
Just the benefits.

Bad calls hurt teachers.
No protection made for them.
Jobs have gone away.

Trying to cross street.
Cars zoom by without a thought.
Drivers are the worst.

Sound Off

Monday

Trump’s a Roosevelt.
Speaks his mind with balls of steel.
What this country needs.

Jail’s for the lazy.
How else to explain dumb crooks?
They want to get caught.

You got the wrong bird.
Canaries aren’t parakeets.
The beaks are pointy.

Pedro Martinez.
Once beat up an older guy.
Jeter was better.

Big “No Swimming” sign.
Needed to discourage swimmers.
Hooks get stuck in trunks.

Kindergarten funds.
Cut to pay for big parties.
Leprechauns were fired.

Tuesday

Trump speaks only truth.
That is the source of his strength.
Don’t trust Obama.

Construction is loud.
Work begins in early morn.
I’m still hungover.

Trump was no Teddy.
Roosevelt was a good man.
Trump lacks refinement.

No sanctuary.
Illegal means illegal.
Fill out your papers.

Pedro Martinez.
Once beat up a crazed old man.
Jeter was better.

Brady should give up.
Take punishment like a man.
He’s no Donald Trump.

Bad drivers surround us.
You see them in ev’ry town.
Laws should be enforced.

Olympics not good.
We were right to reject them.
We weren’t gonna win.

Big left wing pipe dream.
But the right stood up this time.
Olympics are bad.

Reagan sold us out.
Don’t call him a patriot.
Shady ass mofo.

Selling baby parts.
How can you justify that?
Don’t call me crazy.

Truckers get louder.
Complaints to city ignored.
Worse that kids racing.

They’re all criminals.
Just by being on this land.
Arrest or deport.
