Sorry, it was a rough day at the office!

Haiku Humor


Sultry desert heat

  Tarantula runs

                     Way too hot to trot



Mosquitoes buzzing

                 Can of Raid to the rescue

                            They’re dropping like flies



Hungry ladybug

                        Waits patiently on the rose

                     Aphids for supper



Tomato worm dines

                 Upon tender garden gems

                       Quick death by flip-flop



Cockroach scurries by

                          Hunting for morning bread crumbs

                   Too late-blame the dog

You got Tarantula's in New Mexico? Another state that I won't be visiting when I do my cross country snakes, no spiders the size of my hand, and no scorpions, so no desert stops, although I may stop just not get out of the motorhome, and I won't let Rufuz pee in the desert states either, LOL! Peace thru Humor, Ed & Rufuz

Ha, I love these, Sherry!! Your wit is wonderful, the images, all too well known, living in the desert myself. :)

My favorites:

"Sultry desert heat
Tarantula runs
Way too hot to trot"

"Mosquitoes buzzing
Can of Raid to the rescue
They’re dropping like flies"
