Like a majority of Americans, Mary Steinberg, the poet behind When They Go Low, We Go Haiku, woke on November 9, 2016, to the start of our national nightmare when Donald Trump, a.k.a the Grifter, was catapulted into the White House by the poorly educated and emboldened white supremacists.
While many people were stunned speechless by this dark turn in our country's history, Mary began speaking in seventeen syllables.
Her first haiku was, "Loved the color orange / Pumpkins, autumn leaves, tigers / Now Orange is new Blech."
Mary lives in Chicago with her husband Ron, an avid haiku reader.
AVAILABLE NOW: When They Go Low, We Go Haiku includes over 150 haikus focused on the national nightmare that is the Trump administration, from his time as president-elect to his being named as an unindicted co-conspirator (when Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to eight felony counts and stated that he worked "in coordination" with Trump to make criminal hush-money payments during the 2016 presidential campaign)..
The haikus cover such topics as Trump's Inaugural Harangue, the Swamp Critters of his cabinet of "sicko-phants," other flagellants on his staff, Bad Seeds in the Trump family, the Invertebrates of the GOP, and much, much more!
Haiku lovers will love When They Go Low, We Go Haiku!
