Haiku Hump Day - The Mall and/or Teenagers
I struggled with this week’s haiku topic. It came down to a choice between the mall or teenagers and then I thought, “Heck, I’ll do both”. After all, teens and malls go together like Republicans and intolerance. There are many angles to take on this topic such as stores that have no business existing…
…to stores that no longer exist,
Yes that's Horrorthon's JPX grieving the loss of a lame toy chain!
…to the first place a teenage boy would hit upon arrival,
As for the teen angle,
I have zero tolerance for teenagers and my mother will tell you that even when I was one I couldn’t stand them. She even used to refer to me as “the old man” due to my disgust over their shenanigans. There’s just something unsettling about them, perhaps it’s because they’re all id, they’re often snotty, and they’re generally unpleasant to look at.
Most likely I don’t like teens because the girls wouldn’t give me the time of day,
We mock you, JPX!
So get to it people! Regale me with your mall/teen memories and observations. I expect greatness from you (including Miko and Landshark who seem to have disappeared). All of you were once teens and all of you used to hang out at the mall, so there’s no excuse to ignore the topic and give me low self-esteem.
