The annual Golden Duke Awards are coming up. And the LA Times noticed that a text message Sen. John Ensign sent to his girlfriend Cindy Hampton was only one syllable off from being a bona-fide Haiku.
How wonderful it is. Can’t believe,
it’s like a kid. Scared but excited.
I’ve often thought that a lot of tweets, and probably texts too, are close to being haikus. We’ve had a lot of sex scandals this year (as we always do). So in the honor of the day, and to work off your post-turkey stupor, email us your haiku based on one of 2009’s plentiful sex scandals.
