A Jim Rogers Haiku

Just looks at the world;
Wonders, have we all gone mad?
Live, invest, enjoy!

-- Inspired by "An American Eccentric" (May 6, 2009) by Alvaro Vargas Llosa.

on the opposite aisle, ask why

Invading the northern state*
Oh wouldn't that just be so great?
With plenty of ice
A roll of the dice
Would show that eh's in the States!

The women are taking the rein.
Seeking Democratic gain.
In the Senate and House
They'll toss out the louse,
The Bushie who drives us insane!

which would stump the traditional sage.
No koans can beat
