haiku wednesday

This week's words are
gossip
naive
station



train's left the station
gossip fuels naive losers
election's over


hissed gossip frightens
naive fret and station guards
wind in the branches


slander, gossip, hate
am I naive to want that
station off the air

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOH I love them and they seem to just flow from you! Jealously. I'm wearing it like a sweater right now. :)

I like the first one a lot. If you read the media reports and then go check the vote totals, you get two completely different impressions.

Thanks for the heartfelt comment.

Rose says hi as well.

If you're naive then many of us are

Exit polls should be banned as a first step toward honest elections

The media should make sure that last thing happens. They have failed incredibly in their responsibility

Sorry for the rant but your haiku was very inciteful in a good way

The third one is my favorite, but the first is very befitting the current times.

Herb Urban said...

Very nice haiku. Especially enjoyed the first one. When will the corporate media stop picking our leaders for us?

TC said...

Last one was my favorite: nicely done.

Don't worry: I always have to look twice to see if it says pjd or pia too ;-)

UL said...

really nice all three, oh yes, I would want such station that propagate nonsence of air too.. Thank you.

Linda said...

The first and third really spoke to me! Excellent!

Michelle Johnson said...

Nice job with your haiku. I especially like the last one. As someone already said the first is befitting the times. Have a nice weekend.

I guess I found the third more relatable personally. Makes me think of a program or two I can't stand listening to.
