Horror show

The earth opened up before me
Yet it didn’t swallow me whole
It took everything I tried to hold
A landslide of out of my control
Carving its path of destruction
As I watched on from the front row

Tool, groove

Do you use Touch ID
Fail to look at the people
In volatile city streets
Who have the courtesy
To greet another human being

When was the last time
You asked yourself
Or somebody else for that matter
A mad-hatter fact of anticipation
For the automatic response
Cause you could care not

Do you use the right knife
When you try to slice and dice
Into another’s life
Or do you use their truth
Against them like it’s a win
By handing them the noose in this make-believe
Let’s pretend that won’t ever give
Let alone – end

News Update ~ #Haiku string

I do wish I cared
More about our world affairs
Let’s play truth or dare

 

Truth of the matter
I care enough that it’s tough
Watching the corrupt

Dare I say we’re split
Between democracy and
Lost humanity

Our nation is great
The people have what it takes
So why do we wait

We are infested
With blood sucking fleas and ticks
Let’s eradicate
