News Haiku: transition season

To give a continuous shout out to the Art at Work effort going on all through the month of November, here is a recap of the news as presented in a haiku.

Strickland on Gov team;
Washam flack calls foul, files suit?
Leaves fall, Sniffle time.

Traditional haiku consist of 17 “on” (also known as morae), in three phrases of five, seven and five on respectively. Although haiku are often stated to have 17 syllables, this isn’t quite right since syllables and “on” are not the same, but this is Tacoma so we make our own rules. Now, you try it.

Use of three lines of up to 17 syllables, with the five, seven, five pattern.
Use of a "season" word;
Use of a "cut" or "kire" (sometimes indicated by a punctuation mark) to compare two unrelated images.
