Some Fairly Bad April Afternoon Haiku from North Texas

Wildfire has emptied
state hospital of kichigai
kamikazi dragonfly to local pond

aging mother in-law driving home
disobeys constable how shameful
the gun pointed at old women

pampered dog rescued
chubby dungeon dragon nurse
dog also chubby, gamey

brother in-law hero
wind blows hot across mesquite
empty old booby hatch

kichigai sad scratching on lawn
some look up around mutter
see great orange skeleton wrestling a hog

firemen stand in hot smoky wind
speaking on cellphones courteously
rural fireplugs painted many different colors
