Election Day haiku

I went in the booth
to be alone with you lot,
my fellow citizens.

Feel free to leave your own Election Day haiku (or American sentence) in the comments.

  1. I will love your bright and laughing eyes even if you vote for McCain.

    (I did an American sentence instead. Seemed appropriate.)

  2. My absentee vote
    cast days ago, before the rain
    And now, the sunshine

  3. Your election day,
    mine too in this shrinking world:
    our hopes together.

    in a bottle but today
    I’m what feels adrift

  6. Choose another one
    Make him better than the last
    We’re holding our breath

  7. If Barack don’t win
    We’ll welcome him in Kanuk
    To be our PM!

    (Translation: Let me tell you, if you don’t vote Barack Obama for President we’ll be happy to have him as our Prime Minister up here in Canada.)

  8. A growing reek:
    some farmer has expressed his views
    with a manure spreader.

  9. London boy, thirteen,
    Sets his clock for five am.
    “It’s history”, says he.

  10. Bits from voters swirl –
    wagers on democracy.
    Hope trumps past rebukes.

  11. On tenterhooks,
    Hope and fear for O,
    Even here in Canada

    (as Brenda said, we’ll take him if you don’t)

  12. I stumbled awake
    5.30, turned on, broke fast
    on euphoria.

  13. Yes, I’m thrilled to death, but I am always plagued by irony. Here are a couple of attempts at Haiku.

    We call upon
    Descendent of our oppressed
    To save us from ourselves

    Finally a chance
    For fair share of the pie
    It is already eaten

    seeped through grey clouds, felt its way
    over the landscape
