White-trash haikus

My poetry teacher, Cynthia Nichols, wrote these

Distant siren screams
Dumb-ass Vernes been playing with
Gasoline again

Remorse
A painful sadness
Can’t fit big screen TV through
Double-wide’s front door

Deprived
 In WalMart toy aisle
Wailing boy wants Barbie doll
Mama whups his ass

Desire
Damn, in that tube-top
you make me almost forget
you are my cousin
