In the Heat of the Haiku

The July 7 edition of Tuesday Funk brought an eclectic medley of performers and haiku by co-host Andrew Huff, as well as a selected poem by someone on Twitter.

No more gay marriage.
It's just plain old marriage now.
So it is ordered.

Also, women's soccer
is just soccer from now on.
Go Team USA!

How many churches
must burn before we call it
domestic terror?

I eat my peas with guacamole,
I've done it all my life.
They do taste kind of funny,
But it keeps them on my knife.

I have closed the tabs
that were in the browser
and which you were probably
saving to read.
Forgive me, they hogged memory
and were so old.
   &emdash @stvnrlly, after William Carlos Williams
