Haikus on Email Activism

by Karen Gsteiger

I'm a bleeding-heart

liberal but feel slightly

overwhelmed with spam.

If you support one

progressive group, you'll hear from

them all, most likely.

I can't possibly

care about all these causes

equally. Sorry.

Although it does not

take much to guilt me into

some form of action.

I send form emails

to Congresspeople. I'm sure

the interns love it.

I will make awkward

phone calls to politicians

when I REALLY care.

I enjoy trying

to save the world during an

average workday.
