The Bigot is Not, in Fact, Upstairs

by Nick Morgan

The very cool blog, Patrons of the Absurd, points to this funny website called Found Magazine which apparently collects random photos and notes that people find laying around.

My favorite is this handwritten note:

If I'm not mistaken, it says "to the bigot upstairs. that's what you think!" Judging by the inspired choice of words, I conclude that the author was writing a haiku, but failed to finish. My sense of justice compels me to complete the unfinished business:

    to the bigot up-
    stairs. that's what you think! beotch,
    the bigot expired!

I know, it doesn't produce quite the epiphany the author was going for, but I can hardly imagine the conflict and passion that set the author to writing in the first place.

Every haiku should contain the word "beotch".

The last line has six syllables - the haiku police are going to get you.

I noticed that. I guess you should read it expir'd.
