Political Haiku Poems by Resonate’

As we wind down the last few weeks before the election, I thought that this is a great opportunity to be creative with the events at hand and challenge myself to produce some poems in the form of a Haiku.

A Haiku in the traditional sense is a major form of Japanese verse, written in 17 syllables divided into 3 lines of 5, 7, and 5 syllables, and employing highly evocative allusions and comparisons, often on the subject of nature or one of the seasons.

Let’s have some fun with the concept and see what we can come up with.  I’ll start them off.  Feel free to post some of your own in the comment field. 

* On the Elections  

A few more weeks till the polls 

John McCain is toast

Palin back to Alaska

Answer the questions Palin

I like Fey better  

Ifill should have drilled your ass  

 

* On The Economy

The Dow Jones is down again

401K shot
