  • New! – Your Photo-Illustrated Urban Haiku Mini-Slam

    Posted by Jonathan on November 15th, 2017 (All posts by )

    zzz bus
    New, free, city bus –
    Late, slow, inconvenient route.
    Got what I paid for.


    In a restaurant,
    Saw cockroach crawling on seat.
    Ignorance was bliss.


    Weekend night drivers:
    Ten under limit, weaving.
    Better to stay home.


    Your Chinese toaster –
    Inexpensive, doesn’t work.
    That’s how things are now.

      my favorite band
      one night only at the dive
      cab ride home’s dodgy

      murders, theft, and graft
      are all small prices to pay
      for world’s best hot dogs

      diversity rules
      only apply if you are
      the approved diverse

      We wanted to use a “free, city bus” in Auckland (NZ). We couldn’t: it was jam-packed with students who were using it for a trip that people their age would find an easy walk.

      Auckland; downtown bus
      Inaccessible because
      Lazy fung stewnce eh?

      Boy’s Japanese toy –
      Tawdry and self-dismantling
      Now Jap cars are best.

      another condo
      hi-rise building has ruined
      my frisbee golf route

      Cold, and had to drive.
      Chicago traffic ordeal;
      This is getting old.

      Got to court on time.
      Good. This judge is a stickler.
      Lawyers, lawyer stuff …

      Need food and coffee.
      Need to push the discovery
      Out the door today.

      Do it yesterday!
      Right. The most demanding ones
      Are always late pays.

      Roads and bridges bad
      Money spent on new light rail.
      New light rail? See next.

      New train gates don’t work
      1890’s tech not used
      New tech not ready.
