Haiku 28

Haiku 28

Sometimes I wonder,
Will life that we know outlast 
Our politicians ?

The Women's World Cup 
Went to team play by Japan -
Big names read their press.

"Gone With the Wind" shows 
A World entering turmoil -
A tale told of us ?

Serfs may now apply -
The rich have inherited
The Heavens and Earth.

Fifty yard field goal,
Goes thru, win ; misses, then lose -
Simple, close your eyes.

I refuse to wince,
Hurt, physical or mental,
Is part of my life.

Ronald C. Downie
