MC Hammer show
Free with admission to fair
He still has some debt

Gravitron goes 'round
Tilt-a-whirl spins on axis
I'm too old for this

The prized strawberries
Are all wilted from the sun
Still gets blue ribbon

Second grader pix
In all their structured glory
Are up for display

Thoroughbred racing
Not like the harness racing
We usually have

Wiener dog races
Go little hot dog, go fast!
Awww, you got confused

Single fryer buns
It will make a good pet, right?
No, it's for frying

This quilt took 6 months
This rose garden took 8 months
Judging takes 2 secs

Kal ee forn ee ah
The sunshine state is the best
Just ignore budget

FFA Children
Are sleeping in their lawn chairs
Hoping pig stays clean

Egg rolls on a stick
Gotta love the fried foods here
Deep fry my veggies

That cow is pregnant
I can see the hooves stick out
It won't be long now

Stubborn goat won't move
PETA banned the hooks we use
Get a clue, PETA

Hypnotize me please,
I will dance with abandon...

Where are your efforts?
A few post many, some none...
No ticket for you!

Never have so few

They call this a "bump"
When interest is lacking
I'm not a post hoar

Iíll try my hand at
These haikus, what a pleasant
Way to pass the time:

Sweating and eating;
And then drinking and puking.
I always leave sick

Ferris wheel goes round
Up high into the night sky
On top of the world

Cotton candy, corn dogs
Only in America
Food on sticks abound

Golden bears stand guard
Over fried treats, toothless car-
nies, barking vendors

I come for the treats,
cows, races, deals, I stay for
the people watching

ugh itís too dam hot
buy myself a frozen treat
should have come later...

Draggíd through the tool show
But then itís my turn, weiner
Races here I come!

Aging rockstars serve
To remind us that as they
Go, so goes our youth

I do hate haiku
State Fair is hot and boring
But I like free stuff

Plus one - what he says.
Free stuff is always better.
But nothing is "free."

Whew! Relieved at ease
With which tickets can be won.
State fair, here we come?

This calls for Cotton
Candy treats all around! Try
To keep from puking.

Hope to see Hammer
STOP! Carny-Time. Maybe win
Cheap prizes for kids.

When does it open?
Hope schedule is clear, or all
Haiku gone to waste.
THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING MY GIRL.
We could not be doing this without you.
Much love and gratitude.

children running, adults smiling
hot, dusty day at the fair
rides first, motorcross second

Some people can't count
The number of syllables
In their Haiku poems

How do you pronounce
Poems? It's a two syllable word
Right? Haiku Po-ems?

If so, then yours has
A touch of ironic flair
And humor to boot.
THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING MY GIRL.

Much love and gratitude.
