I'm not a Vocal+ member, so I won't be entering the Snafu Senryu Challenge, but I thought it might be fun to write about the human condition with some ironic conversations in Senryu style. Enjoy!

The DoGooder

Ugh! micro plastics!

Yeah, I hear they're everywhere.

I recycle mine.

Inflation Over-Easy

How much for the eggs?

What can we get you to pay?

[Shrug] half a day's wage...

My Friend Scam

My friend scam likely,

he never leaves me alone.

At least you have one.

Thoughts & Prayers

Did you see the news?

Yes, isn't it just awful?


That Men Thing

Men don't understand.

What do they not understand?

You know, just like... stuff.

We All Know That One Person

Hey, are you okay?

Got the hot snakes bubble gut.

You want fries with that?

Trendy Affordable Housing

Go live in a van!

Yeah, it's all the rage these days!

Just ask the homeless.
