Redneck Haikus

Coffee is brewing

I pound hard on bathroom door

I must brush my tooth


Squirrels foraging

In the tall grass of my yard

While I plan dinner


Seven gosh-durned dogs

Scattering throughout the house

My Chia pet died


My wife looks at her

Best while wearing my shirt

Because of the holes


The sun has risen

There is magic in the woods

The dove hunt is on


My hair was long and

Gray the day before my wife

Bought me a Flo-Bee

No, there’s nothing wrong with your cooking. Everybody likes to pray after eating just to be different.”

“Of course, we’re dysfunctional. That’s what makes us so interesting.”

“There’s something basically wrong in a world where a gallon of gas costs more than a gallon of milk.”

“Man, if I knew that was illegal, I would’ve at least made an effort to get away with it.”

“Oh, I’m sure it wasn’t the first time somebody’s pants accidently fell down in a thrift store.”

“No, I didn’t get lost. I just felt an overwhelming need to go to Indiana.”

“Emergency? What kind of emergency can somebody have in a cemetery?”

“No, it’s not a good thing that every deputy in the sheriff’s department knows you by name.”

“Yeah, I know where I’m going. If I didn’t, I’d be going someplace else.”

“The pain wouldn’t be bad if it didn’t hurt so much.”

“I’m sure the guy didn’t mean anything by it. He must have thought my name was Jerry.”




“Hey, if the universe is even close to what her school project look likes, we’re all really screwed.”

“Why don’t you ever lose something that’s not important?”

“If I end up dying for some dumb-ass reason, I’m coming back and haunting the crap out of everybody.”

“I met the girl of my dreams, but I ended up marrying your mom.”

“I can’t stand to see you like this. You think you could go into the other room?”

“If my life had any real direction, do you really think I’d be here now?”

“If it’s true that God always gives you what you need, He must have figured I needed a shitload of grief when He picked out my kids.”

“I don’t know. Somebody putting flowers on their own grave. That’s kind of out there– even for our family.”

“Not everybody can be special. How would that work, anyway?”

“Why is it the end of the world just because somebody can’t find a hair brush?”

Happy Thanksgiving

To you

Who took my all away

My love

My sperm

My wishful ways

My car

My house

My hopeful days

Happy Thanksgiving

To you

Who is always on my mind

When I make the monthly check

And sign upon the line

Happy Thanksgiving

To you

Who makes me feel thankful

When I am awfully blue

At all that I no longer have

And know that includes you
