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"

Air pollution in cities

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

Tanka by night

Tanka by night
Deceptive words by day
This the Russian leader’s way
Putin is short... sighted too
As he stumbles over Ukraine
Forewarned
History repeats


Nato retreats
In a huddle of words
Tanka you for nothing says Ukraine
As a hail of Russian shells fall like rain
Europe must beware of Russian floods



Footnotes from Japan:

A samurai warrior raises his sword
Slicing though many ancient verse and texts
He smiles at me, as I stare back in absolute abject terror
Am I I next?
He is beaming at me in raucous laughter
As he says No Tanka, Tanka to you
I raise my saki and replied Tanka to you too!!!!

Incumbents in Jeopardy

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

Signs of the Time


 
still all over town those tired election signs winners and losers both droop in tired defeat Now these damn signs have to go

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

Women and child abuse

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

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.

Political Debate


Silver lips convince  
Enlightened minds to forget
Moral intellect.

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

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

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

Gambling for Closure

.








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.

Rust Corrodes

Rust Corrodes Our World,

Infecting While Eating Us,

Corrupting our soul.

Justice Grinding To A Halt

Love And Mercy Falls Apart.
