Never one to shy away from controversy on social media, BART’s Twitter, which has been spewing excellent poetry all day, has officially gone there. Specifically, they’ve got beef with LA Metro, asking the transit system to throw down via a poetry slam.
“Haikus only,” dares BART. Check it:
We challenge @metrolosangeles to a transit poetry slam. Haikus only.— SFBART (@SFBART) June 24, 2016
Your move, LA.
Accept our challenge— SFBART (@SFBART) June 24, 2016
Your silence is deafening
NorCal is best Cal@metrolosangeles
For their part, LA Metro not only spits back, but also manages to get a dig in on Dolores Park and tech bros.

After LA’s sick roasting, BART then goes in after New York City’s MTA with a Mean Girls-tinged burn.
Don't tell @MTA— SFBART (@SFBART) June 24, 2016

They can't sit with us#transithaiku @metrolosangeles
MTA has yet to respond. Chumps.
