Requiem for a Weiner:
1. The Fall
(A haiku series from actual words sent by an actual congressman through Facebook)
Wow, a Jewish girl
Who sucks cock! Thinking about
Fucking your hot mouth.
In my shorts won't go away.
Taking pics of it.
How did I miss this
Chance to rock your world by phone?
Give me another
This thing is ready
To do damage...I'm like a
Rock. Stalk me, baby.
