The State of Our Affairs: Seven Haiku

Copenhagen scam
Snow in Louisiana
Turn up thermostat

Health care reform hoax
Splendid investment they say
Fog will lift next year

Afghanistan war
Soldiers in cold winter fight
Widows wearing black

Change you can believe
Dark clouds on the horizon
Night comes on quickly

Frightened birds take flight
False hopes fall down suddenly
Foolish citizens

Democrats on throne
Republicans hunker down
What goes round comes round

Global warming soon
Peer review makes no mistakes
Cold winter this year
