Haiku Monday: DEATH


Move towards the light:
Sun, surf, sand, and drink. You die.
But then life’s a beach.

Haiku Monday is back in the hands of Señor Troll this week
with the seemingly somber topic of DEATH. Which is sure to bring out
some heavy-hitting haiku talent.

Stephen Colbert recently said:

"spoiler alert! we're all going to die" and that's what I thought of when I read this Haiku. Nice contrast with the lightness and darkness of death.

And while I don't have a lot of luggage... I do have baggage to bring with me. Ha!

Boxer: Two things I want when I first get to heaven: a margarita and a prime ocean side spot.

Aunty: I wasn't here for either the game or the after party. I got home to a dark house and dishes in the sink. Reportedly, it was one of those push me pull you games and nothing but field goals. But it means a lot to LSU and there goes Alabama's standing.

with humor you address the central reality of our existence: death gives life meaning. As Otter in Animal House says "the whole point is to just relax and enjoy yourself" Happy Haiku Monday. I wont get mine until i complete my have to's today.
