Time-Drained Haiku

Hurry up and wait,
The emergency triage
can bore you brain-dead.

Mass Direction

My dad practiced the French Drop
as a POW in Germany. He would
mystify my brother and me when we
were 5 and 6. It's all about
the art of misdirection. The coin
is in the left hand, no, the right.
I never liked
being deceived. Now count
the lies our leaders have told us.
The art of mass direction is afoot.
Are they bumbling idiots? Or is
there a conspiracy to sink the ship?
Is it the left or the right? Choose
the cup the ball is beneath. Are your
eyes 2020? Are you sure? Sucker.

Closer Than a Brother – Haiku

A lot to be learned
when your back's against a wall--
Find the ram inside.

Whose Dream?

Living the dream
another day in paradise?
Really?
It's not mine, but an invasive
encroachment mandated by
the bulbous gods of this fouled earth.
The cultural designers are at it again.
Even our ideals are a magician's choice.
Disingenuous moral paragons propagate
old lies dressed in new clothes but
are wolves salivating for the flank.
Scientism poses as being evidence-based
while having no trials except those
bought off by big money. If you have
another opinion, they brand you as
a conspiracy theorist or an insurrectionist.
It is easy to see that our health is not
their concern refusing that there may be
more simple solutions and cheap ones.
But that flies in the face of
the strategy of throwing trillions at the problems
the fat-cats exacerbated.
But some of their unoriginal can spend
a quarter million of pocket change
going to space - and then pontificate
from on high
while a mother in Ohio can't pay
her inflated heating bill.  
All this, & the bearded
dragon gloats and waits.

Be Prepared Haiku

A winter squirrel
knows where to find  hidden nuts
arranged in autumn.

Intelligent Positivity Haiku

Prosperous are those
who give thanks for everything
knowing who's in charge.

The electric dream
is to combine a faulty
human with machine.

Origin Haiku

Staring out the glass--
back from where we flew so fast;
a fragile blue ball.

As You Sow Haiku

Thorns planted in Spring
will not produce a harvest
of sweet corn in Fall.

Always Apropos Haiku

Anger is danger
burning those who embrace it.
Quench it with kindness.
