HAIKUS ABOUT HUMBOLDT

Eureka

Industrial smoke
Over hard-working white trash
Pittsburgh by the sea

Arcata

Hipsters and hippies
Battle over the turf where
A college once stood

McKinleyville

Growing like a weed
Move here for the tract housing
Hope you like white folks

Kneeland

Miles of uphill road
Unkempt mansions left and right
Much pot is grown here

Fieldbrook

Beautiful hillside
Mountain crest, forest and glade
Secret home of Klan

Garberville

Weed weed weed weed weed
Weed weed weed weed weed weed weed
Weed weed weed weed weed

Blue Lake

Shiny casino
Old-fashioned bowling alley
But no lake in sight

Hoopa

Arid climate sends
A message to the oppressed:
You’re welcome for land

Trinidad

Massive sea-side head
Animals, rocks, trees, beach, streams
A million a house

Ferndale

For town that relies
So much on tourist dollars
Shops closed on Sundays?

Fortuna

Population edge
No ghost town vibes, yet football
team pales to Ferndale
