Worried about the wretched state of the U.S. economy? Write a haiku about it!
An article from the Washington Post’s blog calls attention to one way of coping with our nation’s battered economy. The idea originated in the Twitter account of Nu Wexlers, communications director for House Budget Committee Democrats.
Here you have it:
On Tuesday the communications director for House Budget Committee Democrats sent out a tweet that seemed to offer some comedic relief about the federal debt ceiling. “Cut, Cap and Balance? / This will never become law / Let’s talk about jobs,” he tweeted. Wexler bookended his prose with the hashtag #debtceilinghaikus.
Read the article, and add your own haiku to the growing list, here.
Feel free, also, to make a bad joke about economy of language.
