Haiku For A Former “Genius”

I was amused to read that, in the wake of last week’s Republican debacle, Karl Rove remains “steadfast,” and that he believes the loss was largely Foley’s fault. Moreover, Mary Matalin still views Rove as “the Zen master of movement politics.” 

I think it’s time for a new haiku:

    Bomb on smooth waters.

    Balm?

    VJB, while I can’t agree that haiku’s easy, I must admit that sonnet’s scare me. Thanks for your verse!
