Haiku Sunday

It's been a lazy weekend for me. Yesterday we lounged around on the deck and had a couple of beers and then headed over to our neighbor's for the first barbecue of the season. As usual, I was one of the ones still sitting on their wonderful wraparound porch drinking wine and talking at 2 a.m. We never stay out that late ordinarily, but since this is three houses down from our house, DH could wander home at his preferred time of about 10 p.m. and I was able to stay until the bitter end!

Today was also spent out on the deck in the sunshine (I can't remember the last time we were able to be out on our deck in New Jersey in both March and April for many days in a row!). Now DH is staining the deck in preparation for the official deck season and I'm trying to come up with some haiku for a Sunday afternoon...

Santorum is out
Looks like it will be Romney
Less scary, still bad

Which Romney is he?
The right-wing conservative
Or that other guy?

You know who I mean,
The one who was governor
And passed that health care

It had a mandate
Just like Obama's plan has
He thought it was great!

And another thing:
He supported the women
Said he was pro-choice

But that's all over;
He's against "Obamacare"
And Planned Parenthood!

So which one is it?
Both sides are in a quandary
Who is the real Mitt?

Right-wingers worry
He's really the liberal
That he seemed back then

Liberals worry
That he now means what he says
And lied in the past.

Such a conundrum.
But if you're a liberal
Your choice is still clear

Vote for Obama;
And you won't have to worry
Which Mitt is for real.

Just some snark-- I will likely hold my nose to vote, but the idea of Nobody for president becomes more & more appealing.

The first haiku has my vote for accuracy and style, both :)

I've heard that in some countries they put "None of the Above" on the ballots as a choice. I've often wondered what would happen if we did that in the U.S. "Nobody" would probably win by a landslide.

Baxter for President!

That's the most cogent string of haikus I've ever read! :)

Poor guy. You sent him
From the roof to the doghouse
Good thing he has five.

open your eyes my delusional one. the country is dying because of this idiot who thinks the president's job is to act like a rock star, schmooze with Hollywood and sports heroes, and to blame anyone but himself for the bad economy all the while ignoring the middle east burning.
"idiot" is my favorite word for you libs. can't you open your eyes and drive down the middle of the road?
