Haiku makes everything seem better

Over on a FB group titled Children’s Books, we’ve been experiencing a little spam lately. (Okay, maybe more than a little.) From some bozos wanting us to pay for Amazon reviews to people insisting they can teach us how to make $5k a month on Kindle. It’s annoying. But when one of the other group members put up poetry in response to the latest spammer, it made me realize that we could answer the annoyances with–well, I chose Haiku. KU […]
