Haiku Sticky #218

A small, but committed, group of individuals rallied at the NH state house on Sunday to oppose the proposed U.S. strike against Syria. The passers-by were either supportive, or totally oblivious. The one yelled-out-of-a-car epithet was, "F**king hippies!" It struck me as totally incongruous considering that there were few in the crowd wearing tie-die or anything else vaguely hippy-ish, and that a good number of the attendees were over the age of 70, or, were nuns. At least this time, I didn't hear anyone yell, "Get a job!"
