OFFENSIVE PUDDING
Bet on this horse or lose big
You can not go wrong

This horse sings a song
Embarrassing but worth it
Spend money on it

I'm glad i mess up because

we have to in my
case remember to forgive
ourselves and others

because we are all
too human, and these times would
be a hell of a

lot easier if
some folks managed to get that
on the table top

history's end said

Hear ghostly laughter
With freedom freely fleeing
Chances and choices
Reverberation
Through masses with their heads down
Null innovation
Tragedies heap up
Dragons flick their tails in caves
Lambs play up above
Fickle folks forward
Leave the lingering darkness
For their descendents

Uncomfortable facts
Where there are flags and nations
There will be warfare

boundaries torn down
lives torn to pieces, the souls
of diaspora

of endless civil
wars of nation building
nations in ruin

the whole world with
folks running tourists over in
spain who did nothing

to them but just happened
to be there at the wrong time
those same feelings, the

diverse mobs, the
competing murderous hiveminds
who wish to drink our

blood and rip our flesh
off the bodies, we don't need
The Walking Dead, they

carry signs, burn down
store fronts, smash windows scream
NAZI or WHITE POWER

or something like that
opportunism, the cycle of Ecclesiastes
the time of peace and

the time of war, i
pray it's not too late
Haiku #57179, by vhs

the feelings internalize
it is like putting a cap on
a steam kettle, if

i keep them inside
i will almost literally
blow up in some manner
Haiku #57178, by vhs
August 18, 2017 5:50 pm ET

the reason i feel
like seeing these things, these idols
destroyed makes me

think, how far will
people go until they stop
how far will the world

collapse, am i willing
to go that extra length on
a man made of stone?

strong beliefs can lead
to how i feel right now and
i don't like it at all
Haiku #57176, by vhs
August 18, 2017 5:47 pm ET

i hate to lose the
fun out of something but when
i feel really strong

about something I'm
even willing to stand to lose
my life over something

you might find stupid

Weaving sound
Fingers on strings squeeze
Out a tapestry and I see
Through a window needing cleaning
Thoughts of people
Never having met
Telescopic admiration
Moved by action at a distance
Birds chirp in cages wings aching
