Have You Ever Had Horn Haiku
Horn Combined Not Maligned Haiku

Cat is not a pain
Over house has a free rein
Which is domain.

I did discover,
To interrupt is corrupt;
Always done abrupt.

Is agitator

Even a traitor.

Between is schism;
Nationalist populism;
Read in catechism.

Was on Morning show...

To be Black is a Crime in America
Gunshots and tasers aimed at the back
tracking the movements and memories
of unsuspecting dark-skinned citizens 
marked by the scars of a history denied

For Rumain Brisbon, 34

For Tamir Rice, 12

Back in seventeen eighty-one
The revolution hit hard times,
Britain had taken Charlestown
And at Camden had crushed the lines

Of General Horatio Gates,
Leaving nobody to resist,
Except the Swamp Fox Marion
Who alone was able to persist.

South Carolina had fallen,
And...

Freeman Cave
I cherish my freedom
Hard earned though it was
Through the abolitionist railway
And those who supported the cause

An African slave,
though free upon birth
I was sold as a slave
And was now bound to the earth

Run for the caves...

Cutting down fifteen of his dragoons,

were absorbed in the second line,
who had been ordered to...

I am travelling back to the memory
capable of beheading me.

There was new happiness in that hotel room,
Between momma and I, warring gloom,

Until the phone rang--until my mother's voice
Seared my ears with Death's heat of choice:

A Planet of Pain
Kids dying for diamonds in Sierra Leone,
Innocent civilians killed in Iraq’s warzone.
Indigenous tribes removed from their lands,
Children in the Congo losing legs and hands.
Arms companies still supplying while civilians are dying,
Kids begging on the street...
