Before todays regular post I want to point out that my comments to other blogs now appear to be going to the spam folder. I know I’m not the only person experiencing this recently. I’m not sure how or why. It gives the appearance when posting, of your typed in comment disappearing, after you submitted it. I’ve checked with a few people and it is comments being posted, but ones that are going to the spam folder. I have contacted Akismet to see if they can remove me from the spam list. Anyhoo…
N.B. Update – I contacted Akismet using http://akismet.com/contact/ and they responded pretty quickly (within 24 hours). If I comment I am no longer going into people’s spam folders, so it appears to have been solved for now.
This is a another three Haiku poems designed to be read as a larger poem. Like this previous posted Haiku it is inspired by a line from a song, which must then feature in the Haiku. The Haiku is not to be a copy of the song this is taken from but something new. This one takes a line from Bruce Springsteen’s “easy money” (from his current album wrecking ball, which seems quite inspired from his Seeger sessions work). The line is “looking for easy money”. A live version of the track is below:
Sitting at our home
enough money for bills
but little all else
What job should I get?
looking for easy money
want a lazy life?
Need work to enjoy
more cash would be nice as well
better decide soon.
See nothing too serious. Or is it? Well for many yes, and I’m not trying to make light of anyone’s situation. This is just a situation for one person and the lackadaisical approach taken by this protagonist.
Lexicon word of the day: Lackadaisical.
