Haiku #229

They jump to their deaths,
workers at an i-phone plant -
so now there are nets.

Oh grim

I imagine there must be many factors influencing such dire actions.

Grim but with a dark comedy tinge lining the edges.

Reading your haiku this morning reminded me of an article I recently read ... I guess young folk think it rude to just call a friend out of the blue, so they text to set a time for the call!

New phone ettiquete
Text prior to set a time
for voice to voice chat

(thanks for visiting me at Poetry Matters ~~~ your comments mean so much to me)

Not really the solution the workers were after is it?

Tanks everyone. A instance where the fact speaks for itself, I think. Eryl summed it up more succinctly than did I, I think.
