Haiku 2017/185

dumbass holiday
the explosions we get are
never ones we need

What can you say about a holiday whose greeting is "have a safe & sane fourth"? I wish my country were anywhere near safe & sane.

Why do you hate America?

We can start with dumbasses & explosions & take it from there. . . .

Nonetheless, I hope you had a lovely fourth.

I did have a lovely Fourth, on the Coast Starlight Amtrak train from Santa Barbara to Oakland. Didn't have to deal with the dumbasses and explosions until I got into San Francisco about 10PM where everyone seemed to be falling down drunk in public.

I saw your lovely post:

And may I just add, since it is one of my hobbyhorses, that one of the great things about live performance is that people have to put away their little screens; it's a refuge in our increasingly screen-ridden world; so I find it appalling and foolish when organizations throw that advantage away and insist on "live tweeting" etc.
