Justice - August 9, 2014




saber rattlers
intoning words of justice
as they bomb children

drawing battle lines
justice is blind to both sides
death is too

another news event
somehow seems the same old stuff
more calls for justice

your justice or his
words wasted every day
in Palestine

Written for Haiku Horizons

  1. Not just in Palestine. Iraq and Syria as well, except they do not get press coverage.

  4. Wow ... just .... wow....
    We've chatted on and on about this so I won't climb the soapbox -- just know that I really admire these -- so moving -- and the irony of the first really takes the cake.

    1. You really shouldn't encourage me ;-) Just kidding, I'm happy you liked the ku ... the prompt was an invitation that couldn't be passed up.
