Haiku for The Poke

The Poke, a UK comedy website featuring spoof news, describes itself as “time well wasted”.  I follow them on Twitter here

They recently asked for poetry in haiku format, to be submitted through Twitter with the hashtag #newshaiku. Specifically, the haiku was to be “About the news. Or sport. Or entertainment. Or whatever you want.”

I sent them this: 

Frozen roads, jammed cars / spades and shovels, digging fast / freezing my balls off.

They retweeted to 32,000 followers. Woop woop!
