Bad Haiku
Horrible poetry for the digital age
25 Years, 21 Days and 74124 Haikus later...

the whole world with
folks running tourists over in
spain who did nothing

to them but just happened
to be there at the wrong time
those same feelings, the

diverse mobs, the
competing murderous hiveminds
who wish to drink our

blood and rip our flesh
off the bodies, we don't need
The Walking Dead, they

carry signs, burn down
store fronts, smash windows scream
NAZI or WHITE POWER

or something like that
opportunism, the cycle of Ecclesiastes
the time of peace and

the time of war, i
pray it's not too late

the feelings internalize
it is like putting a cap on
a steam kettle, if

i keep them inside
i will almost literally
blow up in some manner

the reason i feel
like seeing these things, these idols
destroyed makes me

think, how far will
people go until they stop
how far will the world

collapse, am i willing
to go that extra length on
a man made of stone?

strong beliefs can lead
to how i feel right now and
i don't like it at all

i hate to lose the
fun out of something but when
i feel really strong

about something I'm
even willing to stand to lose
my life over something

you might find stupid

my favorite Van
Halen albums are 5150
1984, Van Halen II

childhood memories

(those not from Maine google or gibiru oxford plains speedway)

Weaving sound
Fingers on strings squeeze
Out a tapestry and I see
Through a window needing cleaning
Thoughts of people
Never having met
Telescopic admiration
Moved by action at a distance
Birds chirp in cages wings aching

The mouse got up on two legs
And punched the cat in the face

I have exactly
one hour to kill before
"meeting" my client.

How many gross haiku
can I compose in that time?
Or I'll exercise?

Or I can do both!
I wonder how that works out.
No pun intended.

Those Krampusnacht vids
on youtube fascinate me.
I think I'm in love.

Or something like it.
Love, not lust, so get your minds
out of the gutter.

To be a demon,
for just one night of the year.
What could be better?

And you can be mean
to little brats and children.
I am so jealous.

I've done many things.
But getting AIDS from poodles,
that is a new one.

The dead manatee,
she was frisky this morning.
Or that was maggots.
