Haiku 34

Haiku 34

Hostages stand up,
You, your neighbor, your cousins -
All of us dumb bells.

Me, dispensable ?
Sure : old, heavy, not mobil -
Endpoint is Hospice.

Kiss reason goodby,
Divided we cannot stand -
What Constitution ?

Hey ! Give me a  break.
We elected them to lead -
But, in the gutter ?

Hear hob nail boots march,
High straight leg, right arm salutes -
Seven decades past.

Financial ruin near,
Toying with World debt crisis -
Mental dwarfs that vote.

Ronald C. Downie
