Redneck Author Pens More Hillbilly Haikus

FRESNO, Calif. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – A self-proclaimed redneck author has done gone and ’ritten herself a second edition of a book podunk poetry called Redneck Haiku: Double-Wide (Santa Monica Press).

Author Mary K. Witte says she knows rednecks because, in her words, “I are one.”

Witte says she grew up in north-eastern Oklahoma where trailers, bars, booze and “vehicles of all sorts” are good sources for haikus.

These days, Witte is an accountant for California State University, Fresno, but when she’s not cipherin’ she finds the time to dash off prose like: Wanda’s hip slit skirt/ allows her to climb into/ monster pickup truck.

Although Witte writes a lot about Wanda, and knew some Wandas growing up, she says her haikus aren’t about any of them in particular.

She says, “It sort of sounds like a redneck name.”
