Caucus Haiku

Republican Haiku:

Dateline Iowa:

Republican hopeful is–

Shucks! It’s Huckabee.

Democrat Haiku:

Could Iowa Dems

have picked a new president?

Barack Obama!

An interesting turn of events last night as the drama of the 2008 presidential election began to unfold. Huckabee was chosen overwhelmingly which seemed to churn a few Republican stomachs. This is not without due cause of course, because a quick perusal (and distillation) of Huckabee’s stances on the issues places him well to the right of moderate as far as conservatism is concerned. On the other hand, a strong showing by Obama (Change is a-comin!) whose views pretty much line up directly with mine paired with his desire to make the country work as a unified entity and not a conglomeration of various states with their own agendas makes New Hampshire’s primary all the more interesting.

In other news, my own 55 Fiction for Friday:

Dale stepped down from his tractor near the fence row of his last forty acres. He removed his straw hat and wiped his forehead. He glared across the fields of golden corn waving in the soft breeze and pondered its future.

“It can’t feed the cows and run the cars too. There won’t be enough.”

See you in the funny papers!

One thought on “Caucus Haiku

  1. I like that fact that Obama has won the Iowa Caucus, perhaps this dies signify change in this country, real change for once! This country has been run by old white guys for 231 years, I think it is time for a change!

    For those who do not know me I am a minorty and a Republican. To me, Gun Control means using both hands and I am a die hard John McCain fan.

    But Obama might provide the change this country needs.

    My 2 cents
