Haiku – Spider

Spider spins his web
Deceit piles upon deceit
Until elected.

Then, post-election
Buoyed by success and power
The real lies begin.

 

I have a strong feeling that one of my followers in particular will like this one… this one’s for you, Denis!

Haiku – Monkey

This week’s prompt is “monkey”… and it finds me in a bit of a silly mood. You’ve been warned!

#1
Pity brass monkeys.
Our measure of cold weather?
Freezing their balls off!

#2
Families are tough…
I’m not a monkey’s uncle,
Cuz he’s mine instead!

#3
Hard not to see work
As a mad, pooping, screeching
Monkey on my back

Haiku – "Cover"

#1
Covered in glory,
For other people’s triumphs
Monkey climbs the tree

#2
Walking through the woods
We get covered up in leaves
Doing what feels right

#3
However it seems,
Life’s not a cover version
So write your own song

Haiku -Puppets on Strings

From a Grinch-based limerick yesterday, to a series of political haiku today… I like to offer variety on here 🙂

Getting strung along:
Corporate politicians

Sell us by the pound
Feeding us their spin

Gorging us like mute cattle
Keeping us in place

We’re puppets on strings
No control over choices

Not the ones that count
