School Break Haiku


September 1, 2011 by Marj Hatzell

Corn chips and pretzels

crushed and sprinkled everywhere

When does school start back?


Hurricanes do suck

power outages, no pool

My boy’s not amused


Drat! Ear infections

both boys have them, darn it all

Just in time for school


When did it happen?

fifth and third grade, Oh my heck

Where are my babies?


Dogs are great to have

when cleaning up crumbs from boys

except when they puke


Ugh, laundry piles

need washing and folding, too

Bugaboo, stay clean!


Daisy please shut up

they are not sheep, they are cars.

Do not chase them, yo


Nap time, sweet nap time

Happy you return next week

Then I’ll get more sleep

    This brings back memories of student government meetings. The school I went to for my first two years of college had a tradition of holding a Haiku-off to pass the time when waiting for quorum during plenary. We got some weird submissions. After discussion of one particularly complicated and frustrating resolution, someone suggested:

    I’d like to propose
    an amendment to amend
    your mom’s amendment.
