Legislative haiku watch

Somehow, lawmakers
Seem much cooler when they show
Signs of wittiness:
A more lighthearted moment occurred when several (California) Assembly members saluted outgoing Assemblyman John Longville, D-San Bernardino, who often liked to present his bills in haiku form.
 
"What will we all do
when you're not here presenting
bills in haiku form?" said Assemblywoman Hannah-Beth Jackson, D-Santa Barbara.
 
Longville responded in kind:
 
"Thank you, all my friends
This was most unexpected
I will miss you all."
 
At least 25 lawmakers were spending their last day on the Assembly and Senate floors Friday because of term limits. [link]
