G-20 is not a bingo combination...

... but it is fodder for haiku. 

You know things have gone off the deep end when the Wall Street Journal's coverage of the G20 conference extends to a newspaper columnist in Malta expressing herself via Pittsburgh themed haiku.  No joke, I am not creative enough to dream that up.  Read:  In Pittsburgh, It Takes Just 17 Syllables to Tell the G-20 How You Really Feel, subtitled: Haiku Contest Draws the Proud, the Lyrical and the Annoyed; 'We Won't Be Greeting You'. 

so kudos to the Pittsburgh Filmakers who clearly win the award for the most innovative way to garner earned media out of the G-20 conclave.  Who says the region is not benefiting from all of this?

Best I can do:

Piittsburgh a story
Steel or no steel we repeat
What next I wonder

Does that even count?  I think it represents my lifelong compilation of poetry.

and I didn't see it when I typed all that, but Potter has another angle to the haiku-burgh story.

Haikus are easy
But sometimes they don't make sense

G20 in town,
