Haiku about things that drive me crazy

As part of the post-a-day initiative, the folks at WordPress send us daily suggestions about post topics. I usually ignore them, since I have other things to post about already, but today’s suggestion tickled my fancy… so here are my responses to this suggestion for today’s daily post – namely, to write a haiku about something that drives me crazy:

People like to walk
in the middle of the street
in downtown Newburgh.

Most drivers today
do not use their turn signal
until they have turned.

Short term memory
can be a weak point for me…
What was I writing?

The media likes
to make facts interesting
at the cost of truth.

Many folks believe
the chain emails they receive
which are mostly false.

I like NPR
but they often get it wrong
on faith and morals.

I don’t want to sin
but I do it anyway.
Saint Paul had it right.
(see Romans 7,15 and following)

I waste too much time
doing useless things like this…
I should be in bed.
