  • New! – Your Mid-Summer Night’s Pungently Refreshing Haiku Effusion

    Posted by Jonathan on August 3rd, 2018 (All posts by )

    Go ahead, say it:
    Alexa you filthy whore.
    (Feels good, amirite?)


    Your Uber shared ride:
    Long wait then driver cancels.
    All game the system.


    With ER visits
    You’re guaranteed an ordeal.
    Sometimes it’s worth it.


    “Invalid Password” –
    Inept software designers
    Make us click too much.


    Your appliance guy
    Is so unreliable,
    Better to replace.


    Android killed your ear:
    You were on a Skype call when
    Someone else rang. Ouch.


    The Me Too movement
    Trains men to avoid women.
    How is this progress?


    Two-wheeled vehicles –
    Great fun with one big drawback:
    Sometimes you go down.


    Doctors and dentists
    Now spam us incessantly
    To show up on time.


    Remember this, son:
    Alkaline batteries leak.
    It’s a fact of life.

      Folks on summer strolls
      Walking through the neighborhood
      Please get off my lawn

      Lemonade and lawns
      Used to be jobs done by kids
      Now it’s licensed pros

      Summer music fest
      Thousands moshing the main stage
      I’ll just sit back here

      Ernest Hemingway’s
      Novel To Have and Have Not
      Is far from his best

      Loud crowds at the beach
      Means I’ll need a vacation
      From my vacation
