Christmas Lights Haiku

And now, a holiday haiku which depicts the joys of hanging your own Christmas lights.

Get the boxes out.
Untangle the lights and bulbs.
Untie all the knots.

Time to test the lights!
Plug them in, but they stay dark.
Stupid burned out bulb!

Let’s go hang them up.
It’s very chilly outside.
You might catch a cold.

Get on the ladder.
Stretch the wires and hang the clips.
Whoops! You broke a bulb.

Finally, you’re done.
Grab the cords and plug them in.
Power shorted out.

You are so mad that
You swear that next year you will
Call professionals.
