~ Haiku Game XXll ~

Then falters and fades
Away to remembering
A taste of Kool-aide

A taste of Kool-aide
Adds much to the delightful
Flavors of Summer

Flavors of Summer
Watermelons and sweet corn
Remember how they taste?

Remember how they taste?
Asked Halitosis Brad breath
Stifling his friends...

Stifling his friends
Is not the way to keep them
Hey, get a clue dude

Hey, get a clue dude
Have a keener awareness
Like a wily sleuth

Like a wily sleuth
He knows who's good or bad
Jolly Santa Claus

Jolly Santa Claus
Seen in his red velvet suit
Is a child's delight...

Is a child's delight
in a soaring bird so strange?
We all want to fly

We all want to fly
With options of being free
My one true desire...

My one true desire
To live the rest of my life
Surrounded by peace

Surrounded by peace
Listening to soft mountain echoes
Brings restful moments...

Brings restful moments
In the bustle of the day...
A long siesta

A long siesta
Dreaming of the Flamenco
Dancing across clouds

Dancing across clouds
Lighting flashes in splendor
Heaven's own fireworks

Heaven's own fireworks
In wild abandoned fury
Outmatches man-made

Outmatches man-made
Chemical diet sodas...
old fashioned root beer

Old fashioned root beer
and "colder" makes it better
On hot Summer nights

On hot Summer nights
It seems that even the moon
Gives off it's own heat

Gives off it's own heat
In political rumors
Lies are soon smoked out...

Lies are soon smoked out
Like grease from a fresh ham hock
Good riddance to them

Good riddance to them
Like pesky fleas on a dog
Those gossipy friends...

Those gossipy friends
Really need to get a life
Talk is just hot air

Talk is just hot air
coming from the self-centered
Tiring and BORING...

Tiring and boring,
Horrific and depressing...
Items on the news

Items on the news
are propaganda and lies
For the gullible

For the gullible
A gold brick is a good buy
Two for a dollar

"Two for a dollar",
cried the ragged old peddler
With wares old as he...

With wares old as he
The French wine maker sold out
Sometimes age is good

Sometimes age is good
IF you can always avoid
Negative thinking

Negative thinking
Pours hot acid on the soul
Eating it away

Eating it away
Hearts of eroded decay
Filled with self-pity

Filled with self-pity
A soul is miserable
Unless they like it

Unless they like it
they'll keep wallowing around
In self-stagnant mire...

In self-stagnant mire
A green creature wades alone
It is the swamp thing

It is the swamp thing
A creature of the bayou
With eyes like twin fires

With eyes like twin fires
They sit around the cave's mouth
Hunger wrapped in fur

Hunger wrapped in fur
The look in a stray dog's eyes
As hope fades and dies

As hope fades and dies
can madness be far ahead?
Beware the hopeless

Beware the hopeless
Folks who ply "Pity-me" traps...
Waiting to snare YOU...

Waiting to snare YOU
Are the teeth of the hunter
Avoid those sharp fangs

Avoid those sharp fangs
Concealed within emotions
Of greed and envy...

Of greed and envy,
Greed is the worse since it holds
Envy in it's arms

Envy in it's arms
Jealousy nestles deeply
Near an evil heart...

Near an evil heart
Flowers wither and soon die
Birds cease their singing

Birds cease their singing
When man's greed for oil destroys
Trees nestling their young

Trees nestling their young
in the depths of the forest
Sing songs in the breeze

Sing songs in the breeze
It carries your melodies
Across Heaven's skies...
