Haikus about the nüs (and other topical poems)

All the news that's fit to rhyme.

Ninety-six tickets

On sale for Leafs playoff games

One left, post-StubHub


There once was a President Trump

Howe'er high Putin said, he would jump

Then he won the election

Spent a year sans reflection

Yada yada Facebook's in a slump


Ford was elected

But will he win against Wynne?

Ummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm*, her name is win

*In my opinion, this is still only one syllable


There once were some pods filled with Tide

'legedly some folks ate 'em and died

Like, I never met one

Who would be all that dumb

But a friend of friends' friend's never lied!
