A Little Reflection

The notorious gang
Clearly stated in the news
Is now declared Saint

And a pretty slut
Infamous to everyone
Is now called Mary

This political thug
Who attacked lives' belongings
Is now made the judge

In a time like this
Where vices are made virtues 
What's that all about

My Mom's A Maid

                           She cares for the job
           Though the masters scream and shout
                           For the sake of love

ZOOKEEPER

Lookin' after pests
Keepin' a CLOSE eye on 'em

Searchin' for sneaky monkey
Hidin' in a tree

"He TOOK my cage keys!"

The Boss - Maybe Tomorrow

With the boss pulling and the workers pushing, with the Square Wheels on the wagon and the round wheels in it:

The boss views the path.
Roll forward faster better.
Maybe tomorrow...

But not lyrically deep
Case in point: Chris Brown.

Of sleep, cocooned in knowledge;
Good grades yet to bloom.

If bosses would listen

With the wagon rolling forward on Square Wheels and a cargo of round rubber tires, the wagon pushers need change.

Are Bosses unaware?
Square Wheels are always thumping.
Listen. Small improvements here.

I walk a lot softer than I used to

I walk a lot slower than I used to

I work a lot less than I used to

I work a lot slower than I usde to

But I love a lot more than I used to

Temptation

The thought of doing anything else,
When you have to do something particular,
Is truly distracting.

Day - Night

haiku series

waking up is hard
the dawn of a strange, new day
six o'clock PM

beef curry with rice
hubby cooks supper tonight
breakfast, my fuel

starting out the door
the sky greets me with sunrise
first day on night shift

is felt, the heart warms in hope
For an unknown life

Extinction

The Past

A pristine blue sky
Mirrored agrarian lives 
Living with nature.

Their work was always difficult
But that never seemed to matter.
Their crops were all that counted most:
Enough to feed the family
In good times as well as the bad 
Everyone loved their plot of land.
They knew it meant their survival
So the hard work was the trade-off. 
What developed was mutual
Respect: an interconnection
Whereby one affects the other;
But then one day a cloud appeared:
A black, menacing, looming cloud   
Foretelling future misfortune.

The Present

The industrial
Revolution dawned under
This foreboding cloud.

Machines began to do the work 
That man and beasts for eons had
Performed with blood, sweat and tears.
His work was easier to do
But soon discovered that he had 
Become an industrial slave.
A mere symbiotic creature:
His nature was parasitic.
He no longer had in himself
The oneness and independence
That he had always called his own.  
He’d become fat and ignorant 
Living by his own destructive
Philosophy: hedonism.

The future

The sky is poisoned
As well as the land and the seas.
The earth was dying.

Through Mans continuous neglect
The earth became terminally
Ill. It was no longer able  
To sustain the needs of Mankind.
War broke out all over the globe
Millions killed, many more had starved
To death; billions soon will follow
Billions more after that. The stench
Of rotting flesh has overwhelmed
Those able to live another
Hopeless day, gasped the putrid air
Futile murmurings continued  
Until silenced by the guns
The ultimate judicature. 

An eerie silence
Prevailed and all that was heard
Was screeching vultures.

Days Drag

Anchor of my day,
dragging me into abyss.
Dusk thru dawn, released.

Construction

Many men with hard hats,
A wooden house presents itself,
Buidling blocks included.

January Haikus

Singing Auld Lang Syne,
Cheering and kissing strangers;
Tomorrow, to work.

Comes in with a cheer;
Intentions, resolutions
Forgotten next year.

He buys and sells all, but says no to Satan 'cause his soul is nailed down.

Driving to work

- Good Morning
Fresh coffee and toast,
Scraping ice from the window…
Will it start today?

- On My Way
Slowly, like a moth,
Coming out of its cocoon…
Damn!  Forgot my lunch.

- Detour
Traffic slowing down,
Smoke, fire, screaming, ambulance…
Better him than me.

- Relief
Now I’m running late,
Hope I find a parking space…
Life is short, slow down.

...(Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall)

Square Wheels on the wagon, Round Wheels IN it

The landscape. No blame.
Should have been designed downhill.

MIRROR IS ENOUGH

                                             Dishonor of truth
                                            images of all poses
                                               Mirror is enough

Work1

- Question
Speech recognition,
It is normal to ask why…
Dark disposition.

- James Bond
Tic toc of the clock,
It is happy hour now…
Shaken not stirred, please.

- Pressure
To many meetings,
Claustrophobia sets in…
It’s time for a break.

- The Man
Work all day, for what?
The days are getting shorter…
Who said work is dumb?

...(Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall)

withered black and decomposed;

Quantum Leap

The evangelist
Appeared beside a chariot
And taught the eunuch.

He preached the gospel
And baptized the believer,
Then was whisked away...
