Haiku 51

Haiku 51

Wall Street Barons wilt,
Street protestors march to win -
Public loves winners.

Support protestors,
Needed : citizens' strong voice -
Hush up, "talking heads".

Discontent abounds,
Citizens gather, speak out -
In chorus, demand.

Rich pile cash up high,
How many steaks can one eat ?
Soup kitchens filled up.

Avenue, Washington, DC. -
Waiting for marchers.

Legislators nap
Away their trust and duty -
Send them home to bed !

Ronald C. Downie
