  • Today’s Haiku of Loss

    Posted by Jonathan on January 17th, 2008 (All posts by )

    Bag broke suddenly
    My six nice avocados
    Down the embankment

      From a bicycle,
      Falling groceries are doomed
      to end unhappily.

    2. Jonathan Says:

      Yeah, afternoon ride
      I stopped to make photographs
      Damn those plastic bags

    3. dearieme Says:

      In Far North Queensland
      Down the embankment live large
      Avocado-eating crocs.

      Not a problem,
      An opportunity.
      Buy Chips,
      Make guacamole.

      Lucky Jonathan,
      He can ride his bike year ’round.
      A backpack would help.

    6. Jonathan Says:

      I go light, no pack
      A friend offered some ‘cados
      I couldn’t say no

      No guacamole:
      They were lost in the bushes
      Or maybe the bay

    7. Dan from Madison Says:

      Alternate method
      of carrying your foodstuffs
      would seem to make sense.

      Sprint’s circling the drain
      another huge layoff soon
      can I blog for money?
