Twice-told Tales

.

“Life is as tedious

as twice-told tale,

vexing the dull ear

of a drowsy man.”

.

~ William Shakespeare

.

.

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

boring

mental weariness

lacking in interest

obnoxious, unremarkable, mind numbing

tedious

.

Haiku:

.

heavy morning dew

humidity on the rise

air plants soak it up

.

Poem:

A Crown Cinquain plus one line.

a story
about three generations
that needs being told
about wars fought in vain
Korea
chao
sad stories
American lives lost
trillions of dollars spent
communist regimes that didn't die
VietNam

salaam
fifteen years
following Russia's failure
who was fighting who
in the name of God
Afghanistan

hello
brave soldiers
lest we forget
use money not men
give to only true democracies
American
