August 2017's Haiku by Andrew

            

Cohost Andrew Huff's patented topical haiku reflected the weird summer Chicago's been experiencing and his recent trip to New York.

Beautiful weather
always makes me suspicious
of what is coming.

Chicago may be
second city to New York,
but we have alleys.

Dodging mattresses,
boxes and other trash scuffs
the Big Apple's shine.

He also expressed his frustration with having to honor his promise not to write about the president:

Do you realize
how hard it is to ignore
the toddler in chief?
