vitamin D light delight until a yellow boat appears haiku

you ask yourself which
vitamin is the most fun
and most beautiful

banana boat
attacks you in the sea
floating away from anchor

stopping many surf boards
talented of all the toes
this just too big

searching for a guy
usually four in bright suits
banana white hair

see that he’s reading
woman runs to him pointing
can’t go left or right

join U S navy
rubberized ducky boat girl
learn to tie some knots

you will surrender
take me to your leader
top banana of all

until mr. m
taps you on the head, it isn’t

Ringo’s father
the same pattern of behavior
every single time

he jumps in the pool
six feet straight down like a bullet
sits wooden wall

beach towel hanging from neck
smokes bad cigarette

need to know basis

perhaps slow gin fizz
or queen elizabeth’s sister

single commercial i like
deceptive fibbing

as wonderful as they say

remember k-tel
own the tea cup of our queen
a nice chia pet

always buy presents
for dog nieces and nephews
we aren’t related

the blanket for dogs
buying all the store had
for puppies to snuggle

inexpensive gift
walgreens had too many left
only three dollars

cold in the shadows
behind vast palmetto flag
white cloud sun hiding

“love in the shadows
got to put your faith in things
when the sun goes down”

Neal Sedaka
Love in the Shadows


me neither bitter ben ides of march and no birthday cupcakes haiku

Kevin Trudeau

“aids is a hoax”
natural cure for diabetes
Trudeau’s newsletter

“the sun does not cause cancer
sunscreen is one of
the major causes”

five hundred dollars
for a lifetime membership
what an idiot

how can you tell
this guy is a sociopath
convicted of fraud

the 1990’s
credit card and larceny
sued by FTC

instead of PAYING
he joined a pyramid scheme
pleaded poverty

living lavishly
no fear, thinking he’s so smart
out of their playbook

Trudeau said
pharmaceutical companies
don’t want you to get well

this may be the only
truth he has ever uttered
in his whole life

but you don’t either
you could care less what happens
you want their money
