a fascism rising haiku

young dove hatchlings fly
dropping fresh oppressive shit
old man hate rehashed

authors notes-
old man is not referring to existing older people, even if in some cases it is applicable.

a reaping haiku ⚰️⚰️⚰️⚰️

smoke screams fill the car 
reapers ride the bullet trains
last stop terminal

authors notes
recent current events in NY had me back looking thru my reaper collection .
the NY attack was not a reaper event.
i changed the 1st line from [dead screams fill the car ] to it's current form .

the whirlpool

the old fleabag stared into his cup 
ever since he was a drowned runt pup
watching it runneth over empty
in a land where bones were a plenty
yet banks wouldn't let him dig any out
so he chewed off a leg to save his snout
stole a bath to sail troubled waters
tempted by neptune's buried daughters
the fleabag growled just my boneless luck
as he paddled in circles till stuck
a passing whale gave a farewell wink
as he pulled the plug out of his sink

a legend haiku

willo the wisp dies 
in a forest of statues
felled by mocking rocks

authorz notes -
its about following the light shinning out our own arse into danger (our own insecurities) .
not support for the will smith act of violence perpetrated on chris rock.
the event that prompted this poem.
