Insistence Cooker #Haiku #Poetry

A haiku written by Lee Sonogan

Claims of right and insistence upon obligations may depend upon treaty stipulations, or upon the rules of international law, or upon the sense of natural justice applied to the circumstances of a particular case, or upon disputed facts. – Elihu Root

Thorns in one’s side boil,

Cook one’s goose stab in the dark,

Squeaky wheel oil.

I don’t want to talk too much about the nitty-gritty of writing. It’s rather like a pressure cooker with a certain amount of pressure in it – the more you let out, the less you cook. – Vikram Seth
