Umpteenth School Closing Haiku

February 27, 2008

SUBTITLE: Seriously? Again?

No no no no no.
No. No. No. No. No. No. NO.
No. No no no. Noooooooooooo.



  1. Oh, man. Where do I opt out, to quit paying for this nonsense? 🙂

    Mary and I ran errands today with her in the bike trailer — perfectly OK conditions — but it’s too dangerous to ride in a SCHOOL BUS?!

  2. One of the great Haikus; perhaps the greatest. The mortal cry of a betrayed mother — betrayed not by nature but by bureaucracy.
    It reminds me of those lines from King Lear:
    “And my poor fool is hanged?
    No, no, no life?
    Why should a dog, a horse, a rat have life
    and thou no breath at all. Thou’llt come no more.
    Never, never, never, never, never.”

  3. The sun shone yesterday.
    But today, alas it hides.
    Guess the school shall close.
