MALAYSIAN HAIKU/SENRYU ECHOES 553: ANGER AND LOGIC
pervasive perverse pleasure
laments lost logic
anger arson scene
fiery flames to loot and shoot
logic flee and freeze
fuzzy logic world
supremacy sunk and stunk
anger as sensor
This run of haiku/senryu is in response to Ronovan Poetry Prompt, ANGER AND LOGIC, posted on 1st June, 2020.
There is Black protest against White brutality. There is also Black violence against Yellow; endless racialism and divide. Anger is a universal emotive force; there is a global brutality. There were reports of looting and shooting in the mass protest. We could not ignore the background poverty and discrimination. Our social system is much more complex, for the divisions seep deeper than seen on surface. The cruelty repeats ad nauseam. It can only begin with ourselves.
