The Morning After

I can't remember the last time I wrote a haiku--elementary school? You should try it. It was challenging, yet easy enough to punch out quickly.

The Morning After Not Brushing
Pasty, stinky taste
Roll out of bed, race for toothbrush
Never again forget

The Morning After Christmas
Three hundred sixty
More days of waiting, wishing
Next Christmas along

The Morning After Winning Gold
Relief; disbelief
Victory more valuable
Than medal you see

The Morning After Haircut
Hop in hot shower
Too much shampoo for baldy
What was I thinking?

The Morning After All-Nighter
Who? What? When? Where? Why?
Internal clock disgruntled
Back to slumbering

The Morning After the Move
Five-year house becomes
(post packing and collapsing)
Ten-year house, at least
