Fail Unsafe –Haiku

18 Mar
the sound of failed words
like hail pounding the earth
melting to nothing

the lips and tongue move
white teeth clatter up and down
fruitless verbs come out

children bleed and die
civilians are targeted
leaders spin around

a red splashed earth weeps
the tectonic plates are peeved
judgment is warming

the occupants talk
about nuclear fall out
earth has the last word
