Friday Haiku- not very haiku

Black Coffee and Aspirin
The trees are burning
On Wilson’s Promontory
And the Mallee
Fire sweeps across the plains
Unseasonably dry
Climate change?
The bloodshot eyes
Of the volunteer
Come Autumns mist
They'll know true fear
Burning sinuses
Stinging eyes
Always return to the line
This is the beginning

i condensed my thesis into a haiku the other day...

free-riding carrots
and costly punishment leads
to warm octobers
