Bad Haiku: The Loveliest Legumes

Frankincense. Gold. Myrrh.
Lovely tokens to be sure,
Yet not my dream gifts.

This week in the mail
An unexpected package
What could be inside?

We've had some rough weeks
We wouldn't dare to deny
But we're hanging tough

Yet as good friends do,
They brighten the toughest times.
Boy, this present did!

So what was inside?
TWO POUNDS OF CIRCUS PEANUTS!
My favorite food.

A gesture so sweet
From dearest Laura and Matt
My heart overflows

P.S. Seriously, the circus peanuts affinity is genuine. This is the 6th post referencing them since this blog began. Go figure, and go read more bad haiku at Laura's Catholic Teacher Musings.
