Our Finest Haiku

            

The Dec. 8 edition of Tuesday Funk saw a collection of topical haiku from co-host Andrew Huff that touched a nerve.

Turkey's sleeping potion,
5-hydroxy tryptophan,
is five syllables.

Fourten months before
we learned what really happened
to Laquan McDonald.

His killer, a cop,
is already out on bond, days
after his arrest.

McCarthy is out,
but what about the officers
who lied on reports?

Rahm and Alvarez
can't be fired. You can vote one
out on March 15.
