Holiday Haikus

Dec 14, 2015

Holiday Haikus

Bubbafest hunting
Old moonshiner Uncle Wayne
Possum for supper

Gatlinburg weekend
Domestic reality
Dad's a local judge

Costco Velveeta
Stay at the Holiday Inn
Spoil the little one

Named after a bug
We still get along just fine
Tennessee Christmas

I won Thanksgiving
I bought his mom Tupperware
Extra butter and sugar

Don't beat my sister
I love it, praise God, amen
Named after a plant

Can't win for losin'
Drama from six years ago
Don't worry, dad's drunk

 

All of which calls to mind this Robert Earl Keen Christmas ditty as brought to life by Jill Sobule.


The above is a work of satire. Any resemblance to actual persons, living or dead, or actual events is purely coincidental … although entirely likely.
