  • New! – Your Brave New World Haikus

    Posted by Jonathan on May 2nd, 2014 (All posts by )

    Local elections
    Lots of bad referenda
    Of course they all pass


    Ammo at Walmart
    Queueing up, three box limit
    Things were better once


    NSA listens
    Who the hell knows what they’ve got
    We’re all wondering


    Your student loan debt
    Makes you unmarriageable
    Might as well be gay

      Illinois, damn it.
      Worst state in the USA.
      Why did I stay here?


      Oak Park, nice place, but
      property taxes from Hell.
      They’re ruining the place.


      NSA listens.
      For sure, they’ve got everything.
      (And they just read this.)


      Ssssh! Watch what you say.
      Political correctness.
      (Watch what you think, too.)

      The new normal brought
      Yes we can and hope and change
      Damn tropes killing us

      Democracies wain
      Conspiracies are to blame
      Controls not regained

      This state may be bad
      But one good thing about it
      Sweet Home Chicago

      Tech invents futures
      Solves the problems of the past
      But there’s no present

    3. Dan from Madison Says:

      Supportive Living
      Everything has a new name
      Old folks home no more

    4. Roy Says:

      Trust that government
      Has your interests in mind
      You believe this, right?

    5. Michael Hiteshew Says:

      Higher taxes, bigger government, deeper debt.
      A nascent police state, more secrecy, more lies, more corruption.
      Fewer jobs, more government dependency.
      Forward to Progress!

      I followed politics

      Until the 2012 election

      Now I listen to music.
