Therapeutic, Post January 6th Haiku Thread!!
Edited on Sat Jan-08-05 12:57 AM by truthpusher
To help ease the confusion, shock (and pain) of the last few days...I thought I would try to get a "Post January 6th Haiku Thread" going.

What is Haiku: Haiku is one of the most important form of traditional Japanese poetry. Haiku is, today, a 17-syllable verse form consisting of three metrical units of 5, 7, and 5 syllables.

Here is my offering (a bit serious for my taste, but the best I could muster at this point):

Democracy cried
thumbs twiddled, eyes abated
hearts hiding, what now



for fun, here's a link to a random haiku generator: http://www.everypoet.com/haiku/

The Senator stands

We fought windmills to see her

It's Dulcinea


Another on edit

Truth comes from mountains
The conscience of the Senate
Votes no - let's get him!

7. I can't resist haikus
Edited on Sat Jan-08-05 01:31 AM by Yupster
With keen intellect
He sweeps the electoral votes
All chimps puffed with pride

And another

Faithless by the lakes
Blunder costs one. Who did it?
Woe Minnesota

9. Here's mine
Short Boxer stood tall,
Mere moments we heard the truth,
We shan't let it die.

Denying the truth,
Conspiracy Theory,
Mad Republicans

Angry and fatiqued,
Watching democracy die,
Right there on T.V.

It's not a mandate,
It is more like a dictate,
The crash will be loud.

10. But wait, there's more


Torture policy?
Oh, no, I'm misunderstood,
I am a "good guy".

You made huge mistakes,
Your memo was true evil,
I'll vote to confirm.

Pay no attention,
to memos having my name,
That was then, not now.

30. Stop me before I Haiku Again!
They cannot fix it,
If they cannot ascertain,
that it is broken.

They have to wonder,
Will the Iraqi votes count,
When we show the way?

Yes, without D.U.,
I'd be sure I don't belong,
In this country now.

Sometimes the bottom,
Must be hit before rising,
Surely we are there.

Hope is on the way,
It's been postponed due to rain,
Or is that just tears?

May I live to see,
The turn and their quick downfall,
May they eat their words.

11. Here goes..........

I pulled the lever
and said George you're fired now
Sadly Karl had plans



She stood courageous
Democracy at its best
Then shot down swiftly



Requiem plays low
Peons oblivious fed
Brad and Jen their fare.

12. Thank you...This IS therapeutic!
Haiku story for January 6, 2005

Will there be a voice
For truth, honor, and justice?
One by one they rise.

Servants of Evil
Lying in the face of truth
Their words scrape my heart

Damn their impudence!
And damn, too, my impotence
Tears soften the rage

Seeing more clearly
This was a small victory
The seed has sprouted

Our fledgling movement
It can grow strong, mighty wings
We each have a part.

Onward and Upward!

Subtle changes now
Patience is a virtue, yes
Can we wait that long?


One step at a time
Tears and heartfelt disclosure
Only beginning


Standing in the sleet
Cars passing, Fingers pointing
I will not give up
(dedicated to 51 capital march in Lansing)

Now, to lighten up......

Fuck them, Fuck them all
Shove democracy up their
Asses if we must

Millions marching on


Subway graffitti

Not that we have subways in Ann Arbor, but it really is the way to go - get the word out on the streets!

I think I am going to print some of the Bush Cheated signs and glue them up all over town, rosebud57 (I think that's the username) style.

My razor blade out,
"Stuck in the middle with you"
On the radio

Sitting in the chair
You are bleeding and hogtied
You stink of petrol

Your screams are muffled

Yes! "Bring out the gimp!"

39. ok, so on January 6 these thoughts flew by on a screen...
Sad to see sour grapes in the house
glad to see
sour grapes in the house
---------
They were called those who would
undermine democracy
but they stood anyway
---------
Not easy
to fold laundry
while saving democracy
---------
The objectors do not agree
with our latest installation
how inconvenient
---------
Those who believe
the election was stolen
will always believe it

A baby hippopotamus that survived the tsumani waves on the Kenyan coast has formed a strong bond with a giant male century-old tortoise, in an animal facility in the Port city of Mombasa, officials said today.

63. i dont know why i cant stop writing these.
Marching in New York
one half million protesters
silent media.

The B*sh Dynasty
sociopathic monsters
destroying the world.

He knew all along
weapons of mass destruction
never existed.

Yet, he declared War
for the benefit of friends
his base now richer.

Steals the election
the worst president ever
silent media.

66. Can't...Stop...Haiku-ing
Tinpot dictator
I sure miss democracy
And how about you?

Marley said it best,
Stand up, stand up for your life,
So damn it, stand up.

If you knew what we
knew, you'd be crying outraged.
Please let me tell you.

69. God I love this place. Basho would be proud of you: justice through haiku.
We'll just take these votes,
Count them in our clubhouse, and
Let you know later.


What are they hiding?
I think we all know, but how
Long can they hide it?


Pink ties, gray suits, and
Snarkiness to spare: Thanks, Keef;
You saw through tin foil.


Neo-con walrus eats
His oyster constituents:
THAT'S disenfranchised!


Blackwell moves into
The big house; new cell-mate asks,
"Can I call you Kath?"

73. Your last Haiku has tapped into a whole new genre...

Shanked for a smoke
my cellmate thinks I'm pretty
life is hard inside

No! Dark suits, not gray;
Snarky is great, but Kathy
in Orange is best.

WHAT are they hiding?
Tell me! What are THEY hiding?
What are they HIDING?

What are you hiding?
Oh, Kathy! Oh, tell me do.
Jumpsuits become you.

An old theme, but one that just keeps on giving. :)

76. ok...
More fucking heartache
Lies, War, Deception, Greed
Run our ship aground

Hope, Honor, Freedom
Democracy, Liberty,
Bush shits on it all.

Not that I'm bitter :)

77. Fun
We make promises,
must we also fulfill them
ungrateful wretches.

It's hard work, hard work
Being president to all
No time for the truth.

Freedom for Iraq,
Where is our freedom we say
Who protects our back.

Top down, sun on face
Tension gives way to the wind
Peace comes yet again.

78. this is fun :)) .........more
"But for bad reasons
I was a prisoner too"
This, our president.




Towers are falling
I like this book 'My Pet Goat'
I understand it!



Raise terror alert
Anthrax, dirty bombs, bridges!
Oops, election's done.

Watching CNN
My eyes must be deceiving
Magic poll numbers.


November second
Cried all Election night
Morning, don't concede!


We're really fucked now
January 20th
Too soon for comfort.

82. Pick an issue and syllables will follow
Exit polls told it.
Underground trumpeted it.
Media whores slink.

86. Early November on DU:


TIA said, "What???"
Others joined, incredulous.
"How much does THIS stink?"
