Farewell My Dudes: 69 Dystopian Haikus by Johnathan Rice

August 22, 2018


A mashup of modern digital communication and an ancient poetic form, Rice tweeted these three-line poems in 2016-2017. They’re commentary on politics, pop culture, modern relationships, modern life in general. And while Rice won’t be up for the poet laureate anytime soon, many of them are entertaining, some insightful (moderately). Here are a few of my favorites:

Avoiding the Real World

Your problems just called
They know where you are going
And they’ll meet you there

Self Righteous

Saw you took a break
From all social media
Cuz you posted it

Please Stop

If you’re prolific
But most of your shit is wack
You’re punishing us
