Haiku for the week

Firecracker rattle
Sounds just like constant gunfire -
Unhappy memories.

I fail to see what is so festive about turning your city into a warzone for two or three weeks. Too many places have suffered this ordeal for real. This city has. The continual din of background explosions during the Chinese New Year holiday becomes very wearing on the nerves.

At least we are a third of the way through this year's insanity. But, as Marvin said: "The first million years were the worst. The second million years, they were the worst as well. The third million years were really awful. After that, I just went into a sort of decline."
