The exercise:

Write two haiku about: the motivational speaker.

@Marc: I'm looking forward to seeing what happens in the Dream Kingdom :) And as for yesterday's post, I was thinking of making Jack and Arthur recurring characters, but then I realised that Jack will be dead before I write about him next. And you'd probably call that depressing too :-P

The motivational speaker
She tells teen-aged girls
About single motherhood.
They're all pregnant now.

You too can be rich!
Sell your kidneys at the door --
God loves those who give!

[It's entirely possible that the bad news litany from yesterday's piece spilled over into today...]

Can't connect with his
Audience, shouted off stage,
He won't work again.

Greg - yes, I think I would :P

(And yes, I think it is very much possible that it did spill over)

I think I like your first one best. Mostly because I'm sitting here imagining the parents' response to the outcome of their daughters attending that lecture...

Morganna - I feel as though you've just described what my career would be like as a motivational speaker... well done :P
