Wine Tasting is Nice
But in the heat, not so much.
Think I'll have a beer

Gangsters and rednecks
Eye each other from afar
Good luck after dark

Tried a fried Twinkie
Thought it would be oh so good
Better in my mind

My Father in Law
Used to raise some sheep for show
He doesn't eat lamb

Weird, Wild, Wacky
That is the theme. Pretty much
sums up everything!

Ok, I'll try again...

Snaggle-toothed carneys
Want me to "Give it a try"
Hygiene is...lacking
----------------------------------
Rides flip, creak and groan
Unnatural bearing noise
close my eyes and pray
-----------------------------------
Polyester bomb
Fat straining at clothes too small
The land of plenty?
----------------------------------
The next Billy Mays
Could be here in the building...
I need a sham-wow...
----------------------------------

Six tickets I need.
Even if my haiku wins,
I need to buy more.

John previously
Said he'd ride this like an old
Mule. Patience needed.

Not a virtue I'm
Familiar with. I also
Want to know I've won.

Though, no doubt, I'll be
Disappointed; as mylo
Rules all with his wit.
THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING MY GIRL.
We could not be doing this without you.
Much love and gratitude.

Creative juices
Constrained by Haiku meter
For most, all for naught

I'm getting so sick of haiku
So here's what I think I will do
At least for a time
My poems will rhyme
Until I get bored with that too

Chickens, cows, and pigs
The barnyard is the best part
Midway floozies second

Hot air prevails on
Sheep goats cows pigs milking sweat
Slaughter comes for them

Shoot out the damn star
I want a large stuffed teddy
Why can we not win?

I need a sham-wow
And a super-soaker too
I love the pitchmen

California fair
Bigger than the county ones
Still the same crap though

Religion blocks start
Denying equality
Pamphlets litter ground

Piglets suckle mom
Why can't momma turn around?
Commercial farming

Gangbangers shoot guns
Cut in line for Midway ride
Sacramento's youth

Bees making honey
Cell phones, global warming kill
Look at cockroach now

Sturgeon fishy wet
Crawfish picked up pinching hard
Wildlife in tanks

Funnel cakes spewing
Out of tiny hot windows
Heart attack ensues

Up on the large stage
Tap tap tap go little girls
Dreams of being stars

Oinkers lying still
Hands glistening in the light
Showmanship the goal

Fans sleep at beckon
"You are a chicken," he says
Bock bock bock bock bock

Demolition cars
Zoom around the dusty ring
Bash them up real good

Pay for state fair tickets
Must support the government
Else, who will do it?

College kids get paid
Working under heated tents
Goldfish is top prize




LOL, guess we were bored tonight!!

Ha ha. I didn't even read any entries until we finished ours. Your fried tickets is still the best.

(I wrote an english sonnet, but it is really bad, I must be part Japanese despite my heritage, because the Haikus just kept flowing)
