When all do participate
When not, not so much

In Cairo Egypt
The people have risen up
For freedom and votes

No garbage pickup in days
Now my tire is flat

Annulment, behead, divorce?
Poor Elizabeth

Set whiskey on fire so blue
Blue fire hot drink yum

Shoveling only three
Syllables in shoveling
Darn darn oh heck darn

One red oil light on
One smoking engine gone bad
A new car for us?

Towed to repair shop

Too sad hockey games
Tomorrow another day
Two more hockey games

Twice a year

Twice a year we go
To visit a wonderful
Dentist, to fight plaque

At eight twenty-four
the bus arrived. 30 minutes late
oh joy, oh rapture

Oh my thirty-five
Pages of terms and conditions
What a long reading

Come on

Single parent week
Words I didn't want to read
Another snow day

Chilling waves run over
All of My goose pimpled flesh
I hate being sick

That is all I heard last night
Now I: cough cough hack

Three hundred sixty-five days

A Very large monitor
Wow it looks so great

Bad start

6 minutes too late
For a resolution to
be well kept this year

New years resolve

One one eleven
One a day a new haiku
So I do resolve
