Cinco de Haiku

            

At the May 5 edition of Tuesday Funk, co-host Andrew Huff read six topical haiku.

It snows in April.
You have lived here long enough,
you should know by now.

Still, it would be nice
if flowers and fruit tree buds
were safe from freezing.

Frost advisories
make for depressing haiku
-- cherry blossoms weep.

Get yourself a
Five Rabbit Five Lizard for
Cinco de Mayo.

Cinco de Mayo
is also the Fifth of May.
Habla Espagnol.

Leonard Nimoy died.
So may the Fourth be with you
beyond Thunderdome.
