The Love Of Money *
Not Dollar Gen’ral –
Dog Days Of My Summers **
Elvis Presley sings –
Hound dogs swim.
Hand freezes to gate;
Slant sleet falls.
* Dollar General is the name of one chain of dollar stores in the U.S.
** As I was growing up, I went to the pool at the city park to swim and music
blared across the water. One of the songs that was repeatedly played one
summer was Elvis Presley’s “Ain’t Nothin’ But A Hound Dog”.
* The haiku I write are lines of 3-5-3 syllables instead of 5-7-5.
