MEETING HAIKU/SENRYU WITH SONNET

MEETING HAIKU/SENRYU WITH SONNET

 

Kan commented on my blog on Echoes 52:

 

Rules and law; mind made

Empathy and justice

Heart and conscience made.

 

This is my response to his haiku/sentry with poetry:

 

EMPATHY AND CONSCIENCE

 

Lawyers argue with sophistry by the law;

Money motivates to circumvent the flaws.

Creative poets are dead if they follow rules;

Their hearts move tools to ridicule the fools.

 

Rules have to be flexible to regard as fair;

Swear by the book, yet justice not there.

Without conscience, there’s no care to share;

Without empathy, justice is talks in the air.

 

Rules and laws are all man made and unmade;

Call a spade a spade without knowing the shades.

Empathy and justice are mere lipsticks;

Even conscience is not without tricks.

 

Rules and laws are there to ensure order;

Even a president could purr, slur and err.
