Haiku #143


With friends or fantasies,
childlike at heart, our leaders -
the way they make it up.

Let's hope the fairy story will have a happy ending, Dave!

The trouble with children is...
they grow up.

"Making it up" has at least two good, and equally pertinent, meanings for our new coalition.

Thanks everyone
Yes, I did think there was a childishness (in the best sense) about the proceedings an d there did seem to be elements of making-up - in both senses.
Sure Derek, doesn't every fairy story have a happy ending, or did my parents keep the darkest ones from me?
Maybe this contingent are all peter Pans, eh Gwei?
With you there, Rachel.
