A Life Rolled in Haiku




Stage 1
whimpers, mother’s voice;
is the world, in truth, so good
—just milk and potty?
perhaps i’m still blind
my ears can hear but a sound
i can tell nothing
Stage 2
let me play a game
a simple game, not your crap,
—reason defying
toys and all playthings
are only we wish we have;
you shape us with guns
Stage 3
why should I follow
your deeds and dreams so hollow?
i have my credo.
guns and goons galore
does the pen have more power?
reality sucks.
Stage 4
teenage dreams are done
if not for my killer crush
what has life for me?
the government kills
why is the world so fucked up?
smoke and take a rest
Stage 5
the joke is on me
gunshots have become berceuse;
backache and lost dreams
once upon a time
i was unsure about life;
what happiness is
Stage 6
in the pale blue dot
besot with skepticism
drink rum as potion.

will this be the end
with life with a wife and kids?
too old to muse on

they fight for free speech
we battle for life and death
the art of protest


death has come to stay
while i fail to see what lies 
beyond bleary eyes
