banter

Again, I heard it…
more political banter
Washington’s “Candor”

mindless opinions
further mis-educate us
from rich and famous

true

History shows us all
mostly what we should not be
So I will be TRUE

to what I should be
a declaration to all
should be and true me

Blind conformity,
selfish pride, I reject both
of balance I’m host

loss

I loss the screen for crumble. It froze then this showed up so I’m doing crumble.

First statues of gods,
then men pride in capers and
their own skyscrapers

all societies
will raise great structures and rise,
then CRUMBLE and die

we’re born hopefully
on a rising ocean wave,
toward a golden age.

voyage

I’ve taken VOYAGE
on the Pacific Ocean,
tranquil and joyous

joy incomplete,
unlike to those around me
that taste only sweets

with filtered eyes see
some gold lane of history,
sans its bloody streets

I’ve had ancestors
sail on Atlantic Ocean,
enslaved and frightened

I’m the one that knows
they deserved more to be free
and enjoy nice things.

cages

longing and cages:

LONGING for release
from bitterness and anguish
daily besieging

CAGES of the Fates
trap me with spotty wi-fi
and fools that I hate

but now could be worse
I would be in true, full rage
if in old slave days.

territory

[Pt. 2]

you can’t “discover”
a place already having
men in great numbers

it’s not “colonize”
where live and thrived a people
that you terrorized

total genocide
you sought so none would remind
of truth you deny

truth is, you invade
if land left aft of you is paved
with graves of the slain

If native were you
then as nazi flag to Jews
is the red, white, and blue

white people declare
to be “true” americans
yet european

they were “colonists”
“pioneers”, “settlers” of land
of “free” and the “brave”

but they looked to claim
across populated plains
making earth blood stained

Against, for glory,
“savages attack” of “their”
“new TERRITORY”

How is it you own
land where others first had homes
and set crops to grow?

a trail can’t be blazed
if a path has been pre-made
through lands of real braves

[2 B Cont’D]

answer

Instead of answers
seek better understanding
of what to question

It is the question
that one must know in detail
or the ANSWER fails

I’ve heard the cliche,
“There’s no book on parenting.”
There’s books on all things.

[brain just got jammed up
forgot what I would have wrote
it would have been good]

outfit

I can’t help but mock
those that waste a lot of time
choosing shoes and socks

Black jeans with a tee
that’s all the OUTFIT I need
the choice is easy

thieves

Repugnant are THIEVES
unless stole for greater good
or absolute need

Most are caught, released
then go back to hang with fiends
never learn a thing

The only good thieves
use their loot to go legit
one job done and quit

unless you instead,
prefer the adage of dead
ask someone to lend

madman

Australia had
gigantic sized kangaroos
and huge wombats too

Until invasion
by a foreign species new
much like me and you

The fact is exact
homo sapiens attacked
then their lives we lack

Were all man’s vessels
filled with brave fools or by whim
of MADMAN enslaved

no flightless birds run,
no Tasmanian wolf howls,
is “fauno-cide” done?

intimidate

New word, yea!

They INTIMIDATE,
for their ego or allow
intimidation

to befall themselves
and others. They are a plague
I know as, cowards

[Except in sports like Tennis, Serena should use intimidation factor, ! COME ON !!]!

When struggles in life
ensnare and etiolate
one learns if they’re great

If we RAMP from Hell
our inner hope-fire crackles
too boldly to quell

!
!!Novak is beaten!!
so to Denis Istomin
Congratulations

No, it’s not a Djok
and proud mom, also his coach,
with joyful tears broke.

[Good job Mrs. Istomin! She’s a real role “mom-del”]

golf

Some definitions
in encyclopedias
count golf as a game

To rise to be sports
games are played “head to head” with
“offense AND defense”

[So golf IS competitive, IS skillful, yet IS a GAME. Plus, the mere debating and arguing over this for years by millions makes it not a sport, for people don’t question football, basketball, boxing, etc. en mass.]

Happy MLK day, and MLX day since I respect both violence allowing and refraining ways to Justice and for Human rights. People worldly praise the former, but the latter proved more practical and effective in the USA, but the system and governments being challenged to change for the better prefer to honour only Dr. King Jr.’s approach copied from Mahatma Gandhi.

Of all GOLF movies,
The Greatest Game Ever Played
is solely not lame;

Save one comedy
with excitement aroused by
a man of hockey,

beaten by show host,
but wins at the end with some
ricochets off posts

champagne

As a boy I thought
CHAMPAGNE a drink for rich lips
that I’d never sip

I knew that team wine,
not beer, would likely be mine
since I love to dine

downgrade

Citizens value
of nation, not much to me
as of the world be

An upgrade can fail
causing problems unforeseen
DOWNGRADE we may need

Microsoft Windows,
gives constant examples of
upgrades as downgrades

I have given pledge
to not ever browse again
with Microsoft’s Edge

[ Comic Book Guy says, “WORST BROWSER EVER!” ]
[ Men on film say, “Hated It!” ]
[ Microsoft’s minions say, “DOH!” ]

resolve

I bet I know it
the Oneword of the new year
it’s resolution

Or so I had thought
but RESOLVE is close enough
less cliche I’d say

It has inspired
many to write posts well like
Poetwarrior

[Good writing guys/gals. I enjoyed more than average the expressions here. Keep it up!]

HAPPY NEW YEAR! SENASH AAMI WIIS!

simmer

young cats stay hungry
lunging at prey too early-
let passions SIMMER

don’t act on feelings,
simmer over your options
and consequences

relations are ruined
most often by the quick word
emotionally hurled

think, not feel, then act;
life’s odds favor such people
and the hunting cat

[ Be impulsive and rely on luck, or intelligent and determine fortune.]
Most never learn, will you? … Can you?

smoothies

I saw them up there
now I wasn’t sure of it
SMOOTHIE or soda

I chose fountain drink
because I could mix flavors
3! No, five in one!

kids behind laughed
as I played mad scientist
but it was so tasty

filled up on fluids
before my order was called
at that Taco Bell

[ BUUUUURP ]

[ Excuse Me. ]

selfie

Loser behavior
that gets popular among
the mass human herd

ego overfeeding
to take and post a SELFIE
is trite and absurd

same old shot angle
and distance from arm held out
or bounced off mirrors

nothing shown unique;
have nothing better to do
than snap you, pets, food?!

Can you not perceive
the difference between plain
moments and special?

It raises my RAGE
to see all the photo wastes
dumped in cyberspace

[Seriously, sometimes hand the phone over to someone to take a picture of you and friends or set it on something and use a damn time delay. Also you’re not celebrities, great people have others wanting to get photos of them. Most aren’t obsessed with self snapping, no neediness to do so. Develope a talent. Don’t selfie video yourself copying some trick that someone else already got famous for. Think of something original and preferably not stupid, if that’s possible for you.]

boxing

During Christmas time
people are BOXING a lot
of gifts… and feelings

loving and giving
out of obligation to
relatives disliked

gifts under the tree
open up on Christmas but,
true selves stay unseen

moving

Great time for this word
I’m seeking a new place now
moving is a chore

It should be easy
but owners are too greedy
properties aren’t cheap

apartment finding
websites with conflicting “facts”
frustrate to the max

waiting… for a place
nice and at a price better
or honest seller

resignation

My RESIGNATION
for this very short haiku–
zero; I’m sleepy

[BIG yaaaaaawn]

So much I study,
and yet, so much more to learn.
deadlines… but so… [ Snore zzZZ ]

persistent

Slavery spreads worse,
to end it, the resistance
is most persistent

despite the science,
doctrines pious, hate and greed
dominate conscience

but Earth has fighters
finding victims to set free
and make captors bleed !!!!

» Posted By ! Haiku-maN ! On 12.19.2016 @ 11:04 pm

history tells us,
smallest prick done unjustly
will heal most slowly

I yearn for the day
when good men are PERSISTENT
as much as evil

when commensurate
are concerns for vice to cease
as oxygen breathe

spoiled

They scoffed at others
for being homeless, dark-skinned
also disabled

these foolish children
SPOILED brats with rich parents
their lives too easy

They needed to know
discipline and suffering
for their vile mindset

the worst mistake made
wasn’t the mocking of the
others’ misfortunes

but to be near me
not knowing… I came from less
I would make them pay

I made them all scream,
beg, feel pain, embarrassment
for once in their lives

as they took their joy
from others anguish, so I,
delighted in theirs

don’t be spoiled fools
if you are, mind those around
hide your dumb ideas

because your next laugh
or next word could be your last
your Fates die re-cast

airbag

“This can’t be legal,
is this a rip-off”, I thought…
what did I pay for?

The problem was bad
decades ago, yet now worse
the biggest crime in food

It’s a damn AIRBAG
only 1/3 of the pack
has potato chips

That experience
is why we’re a cereal
and crackers household.
