A Haiku poem inspired by a song from one of my favourite artists – the incomparable Aimee Mann.
Bet all the correction police who were ganging up on the double N in the post title feel a bit silly now.
A Mann once told me
Four July is a waste of
Gunpowder and sky
Fireworks are mostly banned in South Africa so it would be a moot point here.
Just for the record (see what I did there) and in case the NSA are currently monitoring me this is simply a reworking of a lyric. It is not some kind of dark message railing against America. For my propaganda site you’ll need to click on…OK I’m kidding.
I’ve got cousins in Louisville and Maine* I’ll have you know.
Happy Independence Day!
* have just been informed by my mother that the Maine branch has relocated to Florida. I could have just altered the post and you wouldn’t have noticed but I’m not so proud that I can’t display my geographical failures or indeed spin them out for fifty words to get an additional cheap laugh from anyone who didn’t click on this post before the correction.
