Alternate Universe

Day 27 of NaPoWriMo.  Today’s prompt is to write a hay(na)ku.  A varian of haiku – it has 3-line stanza “where the first line has one word, the second line has two words, and the third line has three words”.  I chained a few together into a hay(na)ku sonnet based on an example – 4 stanzas ending in a couplet.  Just like the example, the couplet also has 6 words, which of course, I stretched  the rules a bit by using hyphenated words.

One
Direction intact
In Hawkins’ multiverse.

Sequenced
genome can
resurrect woolly mammoth.

Volcano
under Yellowstone
can destroy USA.

House
Committee says
What climate change?

Doomsday isn't instantaneous,
It's slo-mo train-wreck.

References (just so that I remember where I read these headlines):

Hawkins

Mammoth

Yellowstone

Congress
