A while back there was a thread in which people were encouraged to post fun little haiku regarding current events, etc.  I had great fun doing that and thought it would be time for another thread!

Though, as I am sure someone is going to point out, most of these are not haiku as haiku deal with nature.  But the 5 - 7 - 5 is a fun little form to play with.

So everyone put on your creativity caps and post your funniest, favorite own haiku regarding Joe Lieberman's graceless performance.  I'll start us out below the fold.

Drama queens are like
fire: they never die alone.
This House will burn. -Joe.

Graceful evasions --
a hawk too proud to go home
when politely called.

Were that his nays as
loudly voiced against an R
as against a D.

Yellow bellied with
beady eyes and grasping claws-
all politician.

A chameleon
changes to match the soft Fall
of Connecticut.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
