Haiku #116

How many will watch
the great debate that none can win
hoping for a loser?

Get me a front row seat, Dave! I don't want to see anyone lose; some intelligent debate might be nice.

Carl said...

The bloodsport of politics... not my favorite.

It will probably be the usual kind of debate with enough hot air to float a temporary balloon.

how many will do the wise thing and go outside for a nice walk, bike ride, or even just sit on a bench and watch the world go by? steven

Frail flowers appear
April's new moon will appear
The TV is off.

I love to see how you inspire your readers.

a reason for rum,
a call for whiskey sours -
candidates debate.

(are Derrick and Carl twins?)

Now you are getting a taste of American politics...so sorry for that.

Absolutely great. Maybe the best.
Irony in a slashing flash.

I'm not sure even the winner is always a winner.

No debate for me.
Too busy watching repeats.

All
Thanks for your replies - and a special mention for the two haiku. I enjoyed them all.

I did watch it - it had something of the character of a repeat, Friko, or so I thought. Overall, though, I think there were just too many rules. It was more like an amateur boxing match than a blood sport.
