2020 sucks for us all. Remember the Australian Wildfires? We don't even talk about that anymore. 2020 has sucked for me.

Last week I was looking for some blank journals for my kid to sketch in (she's a drawing machine) from one of the many bins in the basement. She gave me back a plain black one a couple days later, saying it had writing in it already.

It contained some poetry, mostly haiku, that I used to obsessively compose during my downtime when I still was creative. I often find piles of club flyers or newspaper pages or pocket notepads full of scrawled doggerel. I fancied doing a zine of it, even.

Anyway, here are some examples. Please contribute. Let your freak flag fly, be formal or spontaneous, serious or humorous, no judgments (just like therapy)...

--------------------------------------------

The greatest moment / of impact: one inch before / the leg drop connects. 

--------------------------------------------

The mantle of bleached / blonde tresses is a crown of / genius carny thorns.

--------------------------------------------

Los Gringos Locos: / real heat that would burn up / an indy worker.

----------------------------------------------

A stiff chair shot to / the skull - sure beats working ar / Walmart 'til you die.

----------------------------------------------

Black Bart chose to buy / a new duster instead of / resoling his boots.

-----------------------------------------------

circa 2005,

EDIT:  Had a Haiku in mind but those lovely word filters came into play.  Here's something else instead:

Roses are red,

violets are blue,

Vince McMahon sucks,

and Governor DeSantis too

Less workers these days

INDY DARLING GETS CALLED UP

   Puro? Yes, but he

   can't work these big crowds: his small

   moves, facials, patter.

ITEMS LEFT AT AN EMPTY LOCKERROOM, 1985

   Wet towels, used gigs,

   dirty needles, beer cans

Spent my quarantine reading new posts on Driver

Better than watching Bundy or E ask the ref for a fiver

I can spit rhymes like Poffo the Genius

But unlike him I can't suck my own penis

Hope I don't get banned by our fav mod Rippa

If this post is in the wrong thread I apologize, like the time I broke HIPPA

I'l leave the rest of the poetry up to the real movers and shakers

As for me I'l stick with trashing that dentist Brit Baker
