If you bring vodka to a meeting, you might have to share

I read each of Greta's haiku poems as I post them.  So far, we've cycled through four semesters.  Fall 2012 appears to hold exactly what I expect from fall 2014.  I love the academic cycle.



From College Misery, September 19, 2012


first bad haiku for a new semester


I.

i prick my finger
on the hawthorn tree -- it stings
like these first rough drafts.


II.

o, adminiflake!
your shiny emptiness is
a beacon to none.


III.

o, proffieflake!  thank you
for taking my idea.
the crow steals gold, too.


IV.

autumn's chill:  fleece and
jeans to the meeting?  yes, but --
sadly -- no vodka.
