IBMC #04: Hunt a Haiku Challenge #03

Haiku 03
The haiku chosen for the challenge is :
sweet was the damage
brutal was the bighearted
when foul was the world
the world is dying
nature has lost its way
global warning
why we all bleed red try love
hate world damnation
nature cries
wildlife dying all around
be very scared
the world in parts
still foul wars raging hate rife
give peace a chance

live and let live
pray give peace a chance goodwill
old clichés that work

springs closing
new life in the offing
robin sings welcome

tides dancing to shore
knowing we’ve raved here before
little ripples blush

    1. A haiku, senryu reply:

      like there are bridges
      sadly closed at both ends
      cross at your peril

      be it west east north south
      propaganda misinformed
      don’t trust governments

      controlled media
      live in fear of their lives
      dissenting forbid

      oft wondered
      what do the innocents think
      when war is declared

      world peace has to come
      else life as we know it ends
      lets make peace happen

      a haiku rant
      not sure that its legal
      is it

      I was at the line
      the starter fired the gun
      did I win the race
