Haiku’s For The New Fourth

    I’m sorry if the following offends any of you in any way, but I’m saddened by what is happening to my beloved country and these haiku’s are not in the least “politically correct” but they are my honest and true feelings. So please enjoy them if you can or ignore them if you will but be sure that we must change the course of our endeavors or perish as a nation.

I hope your Fourth of July is enjoyable and memorable, but we may not be celebrating it too much longer if things remain the same in this country.

Jake.

Haiku’s For The New Fourth

Bombs bursting in air

Flags fluttering everywhere

Only if you dare!

…………………………………………….

Hot dogs without pork

Eat with fingers not a fork

growing by the stork!

………………………………………………

God not welcomed here

Soon gone too your wine and beer

more goes year by year!

…………………………………………………

Protest and resist

Now your guns are on the list

Liberals insist!

………………………………………………….

America is dying

Politicians still lying

Facts no denying!

…………………………………………………..

Our Forefathers sad

In their cold grave spin like mad

Given what we had!

……………………………………………………..

    There is nothing wrong with stating your feelings —it is a bit discouraging at times but I still believe there is goodness in our country . We have to look a little bit harder but it is there. Happy 4th!

  4. Thank you for your support Beth Ann, the problem lies in our elected officials it seems to me that we are no longer a “representative” government as I see it they, for the most part, are only there to represent themselves. Happy fourth to you too nonetheless.

  5. You are free to write your thoughts. I, too, fear for the future of our country.
