Haiku Friday: The Campaign Edition

Haiku Friday

Disclaimer: These are non-partisan haikus, just observations of things I saw at the conventions

Campaign conventions
better than olympics, yes?
or is that just me?

VP announcement
on its way, remember folks
all “girls” not the same

Let the sunshine in
“Believe me, if I were prez
things would be different”

I want a prez for
Barney Smith not Smith Barney
wow. Barney seems nice

Wolf Blitzer, really?
“Heh, I used to play keyboard.”
click, ahh, P.B.S.

    Sometimes being an *airhead* blond suits me. Personally I hate the conventions. They mean nothing — the men who are being nominated have already been running now f.o.r.e.v.e.r! Will anything really change???? I doubt it. Oh, it may seem like it at first, but for the most part we will be the same — there will be war, there will be poverty, there will be taxes, there will be rich who want more and poor who never have enough —- For me Yes the olympics were better. OOOps. Sorry, that was a bit of a rant about a haiku that really is very well written. And you even had a disclaimer at the beginning. Have a good day. 🙂

    i have no idea what he said other than the hubub that’s been written. i’m sure with little effort i’ll be able to find a transcript. living abroad certainly has it’s benefits as far as being away from all the political mumbo jumbo, but you do miss out on what might not be mumbo jumbo, too!

    Thanks for stopping by… like minds!

    Yes, I am mesmerized by the conventions, who’s nominated, the commentators… like the Olympics getting very little sleep- at least some interesting T.V. of late:)!

    All kidding aside, it will be an interesting couple of months for our country.

    Cute post!

    Yep, campaign times are interesting times, and even if there is a lot of hot air and promises that might or might not be entirely true, I do love the idea of our overall process.

    I like your Haiku – yes I imagine that the convention would be very fun, but not better than the olympics for me

    Undeniably imagine that which you said. Your favorite reason appeared to be at the internet the easiest thing to take into accout of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed whilst people think about concerns that they just do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also outlined out the entire thing without having side-effects , other folks can take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thank you
