Responding to the Challenge

I received the following email from the NinjaBaker:

I had a really odd dream last night. It included Glenn Beck. One of the first things he said to me was “I got your Mom’s haiku”. I then wondered how he recognized me as your son (especially cause I imagine you might have emailed it to him), and he said something about how I breathed or spoke.

Anyway, upon waking and remembering this, I was wondering what kind of haiku you would write to Glenn Beck. I imagine it would have something to do with firmly disagreeing with his beliefs, including a few choice words, but I couldn’t picture fitting it all into merely 17 syllables.

Consider this a challenge from my subconscious.

One way to cheat trick to getting around the strict 17 syllable limit is to use a series of haikus:

Dreaming of Glenn Beck,
the idiots’ idiot:
subconscious challenge.
Word: “Conservative.”
I do not think that it means
what you think it means.

Too stupid for words;
So wrong he’s not even wrong.
Not worth the effort.
