Haiku Times Eight

Striving Poet's Corner



Some do, and some don't.

Their reasons are each their own.

Get them out to vote.


Check the window first.

Sun today or gray? Hope for sun.

Makes each day the best.


Cars, trucks give it out.

And there are some days and nights

When I'm just exhaust

Johnny On The Spot®

When you've got to go,

Consideration means that

relief is in sight.


The body chimes then.

Signal that all is not right.

Hungers, thirsts won't wait.


What goes up comes down,

not always at the "right" time.

God wills it is so.


Yuck it up they do.

To me it seems so silly.

To them it's just right.


Accountants seem stressed,

especially at tax time;

taxpayers are too.

Sorting and sifting....
