Haiku 55

Haiku 55

Mute majority,
Gathers, joins voices, shouts out -
Truth wins out, always.

Fifty senators,
Tone deaf, ignoring the facts -
Kiss rings of the rich.

Hear Buddy Roemer,
Republican who speaks truth -
His party mutes him.

Sticks and stones break,
Break more than bones, future's hope -
Leave the past behind.

Education swells,
Within chests and minds, Earth's needs -
Our dreams unfettered.

Feelings, join together
People needing common cause -
Need, ask; but have, give.

Ronald C. Downie
