A Haiku About Global Warning

The sun in tantrum
Disrupts day-to-day living
Less than greenhouse gas.

#NaPoWriMo 2017 Day 14


A short one today—an attempt at haiku, really not very good—because, honestly, between fanboying about Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Mystery Science Theater 3000, I’ve been distracted. And then there were all the Cheetos Puffs and butter pecan ice cream I ate for dinner. Oh, and I didn’t sleep much last night.

Have some syllables about global warming!
