    I would like to tap your minds for the best political Haiku.

    I would like to take a week or so to get your political haiku and then, if there is any interest, post a poll for the best.

    If I'm being stupid, feel free to say so. It won't be the first time.

    Our problems are hard
    They supported it before
    No to Obama

    Acorn broke the law
    Blackwater murdered people
    Cheney should profit

    To avoid earnest

    debate, just try whining, "But

    where were you when Bush...?"

    You watched for eight years
    As the national debt grew
    Yet you said nothing

    Haiku is wayyyy too noble an art form to be sullied by "politics". Ugh!

    But not the limerick...

    There was a young lady called Palin
    Whose election attempts just kept failin'
    She tried and she tried,
    but her brain was too fried
    and in every darn race, wound-up trailing​

    there you go!

    :)

    A way to stop them
    From going to Arizona
    Move border northward

    Hope that is 5-7-5, always sucked at counting moras.

    There was a guy from Mass
    Who showed off his balls and ass
    He ran for the senate
    And he got elected
    But in 2012 his ass is grass

    I'm slightly better at limericks than haikus too ;)

    Noise from left and right
    A nation stands divided
    Healthcare, off my guns!

    Or maybe,

    Tangled in the net
    This forum now so QUIET
    Level heads prevail

    Try double dactyls if you want a challenge:

    Golly-gee gosh-itty
    Caribou Barbie-Doll
    Flew from her home in the
    Snow to campaign.

    Spouted sheer ignorance,
    Heterodoxically,
    Dashing the maverick
    Dreams of McCain.

    Viagra, facelifts,
    Elective hip replacements,
    They'll all be covered.

    Great expectations!
    Politics as usual
    Naïveté rules!



    My right arm is left
    Bare in the middle of shirt
    Concealed with your brain



    How is that hopey
    Changey thing workin' for ya,
    Better than loose change.



    Birthers are barren
    Minds with more fetal matter
    Than hatter, he said.

    More seriously:

    Perfectly groomed Mall
    In the grass a torn sign lies:
    Everything is wrong.

    Herein, he's no more
    Barrels of laughs and face palms
    Who will take his place?

    God is dyslexic.
