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

 

…the continuation of yesterday’s Haiku quoted at the top.

One Word Photo Challenge: Ceiling

JW 1 word pic

All of these feelings

Are trapped against the ceiling

Holding my love within a noose

Under humility’s roof

Folded within a paper house

Sealed forever in doubts

Right out of the Victorian era

Shrouded in night terrors

A tale thousand times told

You know how the story goes

Table tops and book covers

Nestled in the corner as lovers

Collecting dust and growing old

 

In response to Jennifer Nichole Wells one-word-photo-challenge: ceiling

Navigating aquatic passageways
Following the muted light rays

Shining above the calm surface
Breaking through with purpose

Tangled in life’s painful ropes
Restricting the breath of hope

Sinking back into depths below
Following channels that flow

Emerging over and over again
Frightened kids, we call men

Struggling to swim upstream
A daily occupational regime

Let’s Play

All she wanted was a friend
Somebody that would play
To assuage isolated days
Yet everybody just ran away
Rousing evil living within
Now, she plays with her prey

Hair drapes a hideous face
Victims bashed with heavy lead
In the head, but not for dead
There’s a night of play ahead
Limp bodies towed to her place
Blood trails marking a field red

Chained at the end of the hall
With each swing the evil swells
Dreadful weeps turn into yells
Sufferings’ beg and plead help
Plasma drips from every wall
Malicious spirits rise from hell
