I was in an IM conversation with a friend who prefers to remain anonymous. I mentioned that I parked next to a California Highway Patrol car yesterday and noticed that there was a machine gun in the car, next to the shotgun. I figured that it must be a new anti-terrorist thing. What he said turned out to be a nice haiku:

Machine guns for cops

mowing us down for the man

to keep us in check

Like they say, if you weren’t there for the 60’s and Nixon, never mind.
