how 'bout that!

South Station
Hears his voice
“All half price papers
‘Cept for the Herald
How ‘bout that!”

What is a sherku?

This is a new format for sherku. I am exploring more of the common 3-4 syllable phrases that characterize much of American language following work done by William Carlos Williams. The nineteen syllable restriction remains but the lines will work out to be five or six instead of the original three.
