I Am

I AM

Human dandelion
in a world of weed killers,
colour of sunshine
yet despised for being me...
or one’s seed so prolific.

© Harry J Horsman 2012   

For Joann Grisetti contest 'Çopy Cat' 
Inspired by Andrea Dietrich poems on Dandelions
"Dandelions self defined,The Dandelion Revenge, Dandelion propagation
In her book,   "Cheshire Chuckles"

We should plant more trees
In the cities of the world
Beside the roads
And on the roofs of buildings
To reduce air pollution

Incumbents in Jeopardy

Washington in flux
Stimulus dollars squandered
Corporate big wigs laugh --
Ignorant approach rebuked
Voters cast out incumbents

The Slaves Tanka

Of what use is time
If it’s consumed by passion
Servicing others
Servitude that drowns your dream
While you toil and save and pay

Evil Web

 
Evil weaves its’ web
Disguised as democracy
Awaits the naïve
The too easily deceived
Until it’s too late to run
And too hopeless to stuggle

We must put an end
To women and child abuse
From our societies
By enforcing stricter laws
And creating awareness

Political Debate


Silver lips convince  
Enlightened minds to forget
Moral intellect.

    Truth tip toes through golden lies,
    Into un-commissioned  eyes.

A New Vessel And Sailors

Drunken are sailors
Three loose sheets in the 
wind
The fourth in the wind
The vessel spick-and-
span new
Moves in a uncontrolled 
way.

Space exploration

We should go to mars
And all promising planets
To explore and find
Mineral resources
In order to meet our need

Lee Quan

Singapore, created  by mister Lee Quan
that is history of great love and succes
written not for us,
as for many other Asian nations and their leaders
learned nothing from the best pasts lessons and guides.

Politicians

Now patriotism
Is found in the lexicon
Politicians
Are deprived of it today
They want money and power

With set of four suits a house of cards has been built Shaky foundation its collapse tumble values Those jokers removed balance

Wall Of Jars

The Herbalist,

Stood before his wall of jars,

Mixing concoctions,

For the local folks who came

for health, despite wrongful laws.

Chauvinist

The right to freedom
Casts but a shadow of doubt
For the luckiest
Can not see it or hear it
And there appears, chauvinist

Rust Corrodes

Rust Corrodes Our World,

Infecting While Eating Us,

Corrupting our soul.

Justice Grinding To A Halt

Love And Mercy Falls Apart.
