Haiku H118

Only in America –
Must one clarify
Which recent shooting

Notes to this poem…

Christina Grimmie got shot on the weekend, only to be overshadowed by the Orlando gay night club massacre. Someone asked me this morning if I had heard about the shooting in Florida over the weekend. I assumed they meant the gay night club one that was the worse mass shooting in US history by a long shot. However, there was a plausible chance they meant Christina Grimmie’s killing, and I had to ask which shooting? That was pretty pathetic that I had to ask.

The H-series poems comprise of haiku composed while I was not engaged in some activity during which I frequently composed poetry. That is why these are called the Inactive Haiku collection.
