Video: Andrew Huff rips haiku from the headlines

            

At our July 2nd edition of Tuesday Funk, co-host Andrew Huff delivered another fistful of his signature topical—but not tropical—haiku:

Some lucky people
are a haiku on their own.
Eden M. Robins.

This rain will not stop.
Our homes will soon float away.
Chicago renewed.

What I'd like to know
is when July's heat arrives,
will you still complain?

Supreme Court in June:
DOMA and Prop 8 struck down;
same with voter rights.

Since Bill's in New York
might Tuesday Funk now become
a two-state reading?

And if you enjoyed that, please join us at 7:30 pm on Tuesday, August 6th, 2013, upstairs at Hopleaf, for an evening with Bradley P. Beaulieu, Jac Jemc, Steven H Silver, Maggie Jenkins, and Dmitry Samarov.
