Andrew's Haiku for November 2018 | Tuesday Funk

Andrew's Haiku for November 2018

            

As fall entered its more wintry season, and as the tallies began to roll in on election night, Tuesday Funk cohost Andrew Huff shared these topical haiku.

If you did not vote,
you do not get to complain.
You are self-silenced.

Anger and despair
take equal space in my mind
as I read headlines.

A rainy fall day
Wet leaves stick to the sidewalk
Black skeletal trees

Anticipating,
the squirrel builds its warm nest
to dream through winter.

And in honor of a couple of regular attendees' recent nuptials...

Brian and Laura
got married on Saturday.
Congratulations!
