Haiku #111 and #112

Pop the question, friend
net yourself three pound per week! -
If the tories win.


Eggshell promises -
grab them with both hands, they'll break.
Yuk all over you.

such is the nature of eggshell promises... there's no short cut.

promises are not all they're cracked up to be. very often (certainly with political promsies) the yolk's on you. steven

Like a surgeons knife
David wields his mighty pen
Haiku springs anew

These things are tough to do, let alone do well the way you are congrats. keep it going. I like getting the news of the day in 17 syllables.

...and I elect to think your haiku and the comments so far are very apt and clever.

if only they'd leave the governing to bloggers. We'd know so much better, wouldn't we.
perhaps we wouldn't tell quite so many lies, make quite so many empty promises, line our pockets quite so efficiently.

This may sound like a joke, but I am really quite desperate about it all.

Love the "Yuk all over you" line, Dave!

Eggshell promises. I will remember that one. Very good. Yuk.

All
Once again, many thanks to everyone for those exceptionally kind words. I must say that I was quite taken with Friko's idea of bloggers taking over the governing. Also Steven's pun and Carl's (my) pen - which, actually has just run out. More yuk!
