HAIKU OF THE DAY 12222016

1.

Police announced “lull”

In “gun homicides” today:

Four days without deaths.

2.

No paradigm shift

The homicides continued

Just by other means.

3.

Chicago Police

Celebrate “small victories”

We still had stabbings

4.

The death toll rises

As the mercury plummets

Chiraq in winter.

5.

This gun violence

Arms Trump with ammunition

His rhetoric needs.

6.

Politicians know

We need more than free turkeys;

We need employment.
