haiku for all you sonsofbitches out there in the united states of generica.

it is yesterday
that's the day before today
& not tomorrow.
***
i'm writin' things down
but not just any old thing
only the new things.
***
with my gun in hand
i walked up to the counter
& screamed for money.
***
while in a state of
suspended animation
i watched everything.
***
i have stopped thinkin'
stare off into space alot
fuckin' accept it.
***
motherfuckin' trains
they kick motherfuckin' ass
yeah, motherfucker.
***
sittin' in this chair
& starin' at the ceiling
wonderin' about.
***
someone else will write
my autobiography
i'll just sign my name.
***
i am important
that's why i wander around
while wearin' this suit.
***
i didn't even
wear a motherfuckin' suit
to my own wedding.
***
i am not proud of
the work that i have to do
to get a paycheck.
***
i'm not of this world
but from where, i do not know
it's anyone's guess.
***
i've come up with the
best combination of words
that you've ever seen.

Good stuff, motherfucker! I agree with you on trains. The best part of a train is the bar car. Mobile booze, hooray!

Your haikus are consistently excellent. The best combination of words, indeed!
