Haiku 79

Haiku 79

Three lines - seventeen syllables - five, seven, five

Primary burnout,
Too many speeches, repeats -
Ideas are worn thin. 

Where's politicians 
Who put citizen's needs first ?
Those visionaries ! 

It piles up high,
Money begets big money -
As speech, money's loud.

Wake up, please ! Wake up !
Are Corporations people ?
Money, is it speech ?

Wanted, strong marchers,
An army taking to streets -
People's rights surface.

It is your rights lost,
If you don't resist assault -
They're your's, to keep/lose !

Ronald C. Downie
