Poem #28 -- Inspired by the #npm #twitkus of @delzey

Take a minute to read David Elzey's twitkus (Twitter+haikus) from

the first week of poetry month
the second week of poetry month
the third week of poetry month

His twitkus have evolved from blues haikus and Burma Shave haikus into quasi-blues and bummers.

He has inspired me to write a trio of haiku bummers.




I went to the bank.
My poetry account's dry.
Need luck to reverse.


Tried to grade math tests.
Fell asleep with pen in hand.
My work multiplies.


It's raining again.
Let's make like the new year and
Wring out this season.

  1. oh ho! so my barrage of bummers has become infectious! thanks for the shout-out.

    this is quite a nice little trio here. i cannot tell you how often i've felt overdrawn at the poetry bank this month, but infusions come at the last minute.

    and now to set about with today's 'kus...

  3. Oh my, that first one, I am SO there with you. I've loved doing it but I am not ashamed to say that I am ready for the month to be over!
