Tax time (Ron Borreson illustration, MCT) Happy, er, tax day. In an effort to put a little cheer into a gloomy day, we asked readers to write some IRS haiku – hey, if you can’t inject a little levity (or bitterness) into 17 syllables, there’s no hope to be had! The full collection is posted online, but here’s a little bit to cheer you…

“Loved your creativity,
Sending auditor.”

— Marilyn Slade, Pleasanton

But make all the instructions
Confusing as hell
— Cynthia Bass, Danville
