Haikus to Iran

In Iran they march
"Where" they ask "is my vote gone?"
Answered by truncheon

God, Allah, they call
In His name, holy, oppress
Gods weakest children

Other news shall show
Western television screens
But we wont forget

Hundreds dead now
We only know one name, one face
A prayer for them say

    I worry that our soldiers feel disenfranchised from our political system as you describe so poignantly in your first haiku, Tomas. How sad that they are away from home during the holiday season. Indeed, we can't forget these men and women. A powerful haiku series, Tomas. Welcome to Poetry Soup! Hope you enjoy sharing work with the many fine poets on this site. Thank you for your kind comment. Peace and blessings, Carolyn
