White Feathered Fowl

white feathered fowl
slathered in black slimy crude
let their cry be ours . . .

    I'm not a fan but stopped to read this because I liked the title. It reminded me of a poem I wrote called Feather Beauty Bright. I understand the reasoning of wanting to conform to someone elses poetic form.

    Very nicely written and completly concise. I got the passion without to many angry words. I also wanted to thank you for noticing that my poem "Stepping Outside" was a different form then what I put down. Thanks again for the observation.

    Saying its fixed on TV is a joke ..how do u fix the loss and the devastation and the poor wildlife and sea creatures .. Connie your Haiku is brilliant to this travesty of greedy corporation and government... I have written a few myself on this subject so harsh to swallow... still so fresh in the mind... now the seafood is all tainted for restarant consumption as well.. luv.. wonderful words..my friend.. with luv..
