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"

Hellish Politicians

God blessed scientists
Predicted cyclone Helen.
Power blessed politicians
Slept dreaming on new projects
Many died many homeless.

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

they stand no chance
the die is cast
without a trial
guilt by association

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

Political Debate

Silver lips convince  
Enlightened minds to forget
Moral intellect.

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

Women and child abuse

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

Space exploration

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

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