Local Government Haiku

June 17, 2011

Making Haiku famous... Even as he is anonymous

The poetry beloved of Herman Van Rompuy is an old favourite of one WLLG blogger so for no reason other than it is Friday she persuaded the gang to join in and produce some local government Haiku. Here’s what we came up with; please do join in:

On service delivery

Rubbish once a week
Said Eric; the costs piled up
Localism ain’t dead?

Scrutiny meeting
Adding to our democracy
But no-one listens

Big CCTV
Watch dogs poo and you flytip
Is Big Brother back?

On savings

We need to save cash
To pay for the deficit
Redundancy time?

Children’s services
Don’t start making cuts to us
Or a child might die
