Topical Haiku for April 2019 | Tuesday Funk

Topical Haiku for April 2019

          

The runoff election was weighing on cohost Andrew Huff ahead of our April show, which happened to fall on election night.

Mayor Preckwinkle
after today's election.
Or Mayor Lightfoot.

Either one will be
Chicago's first black woman
to become mayor.

The question remains:
will she be an improvement
over Rich and Rahm?

Lead in our water.
The City sent a savior:
a filter pitcher.

Tulips break the soil,
their thick green leaves welcoming
the coming of spring.
