  • New! – Your Friday That’s-All-I-Got Burnt Haiku Offering

    Posted by Jonathan on October 5th, 2018 (All posts by )

    “Hi, this is Bridget. . .”
    The phony recorded voice
    Cues you to hang up.


    New Android update!
    Now the apps run much slower,
    Battery dies fast.


    The people next door
    Are into Santeria.
    Better hide your cat.


    Your middle-class friends
    Are sometimes rude to smokers.
    Time to get new friends?


    Morning home-leaving.
    Your dog thinks it’s betrayal.
    Perhaps he’s correct.


    Fat girl riding bike.
    She looks angry, I say Hi.
    She doesn’t respond.
