Haiku 40

Haiku 40

Do you get the drift ?
A youngster's future's in doubt,
If parents not rich.

Middle East our fate,
Or European default ?
Signs point to either.

Some high on the hog,
Never to want or worry -
Born with silver spoon.

"The Grapes Of Wrath" told
Tails of desperate cursed times -
Read them, return's near.

Songs of Pete Seeger -
"Where Have All The Flowers Gone ?"
"Take It From Dr. King".

You still listening ?
Don't drop out, change is needed -
Your voice must be heard !

Ronald C. Downie
