haiku wednesday - February 11, 2009

This week's words are
disarray
rabble
validate

Wow, these words are a harsh indictment of Obama's first week, eh? "The disarray of the bailout only serves to validate the screeches of the uneducated rabble." These words can go together in so many ways. I wish I could allow myself more than 17 syllables! With 8 taken, I've only 9 to play with. (I know, I know. Whine, whine, whine. Get over it already.)



disarray of socks
teen rabble play strip poker
validate moms' angst


tin soldier rabble
validate rebellion fears
hope in disarray


Paris disarray
the rabble validate us
let us keep our heads

Nifty 'ku and Am. sentence. The third haiku is my favorite - 'let us keep our heads' is a stark reminder that sheeple are lemminglike. Great job, as always.

PJD,

What great haiku. I love the unexpectedness of the first haiku. I like the return to the burning barricades of Paris in what I cal "Liberté, Egalité, et Fraternité" in my mind. And I enjoy the second.

I think my favourite is the first for its fresh use of the words. Well done.

I am partial to power of distilled poetry but I don't always have the skill to pull it off. You do. Thanks.
