Tanka T129

It was about time –
20-16 took the life
Of someone I loathed –
Among the many I loved –
Good riddance Fidel Castro!

Notes to this poem…

Posted out of sequence for timeliness of event.

2016 has been a particularly bad year for deaths of a lot of famous people I like and/or respected. They’re mostly the ones most of the public probably feel the same way about if you were to look up any list of celebrity deaths in 2016. However, news of Fidel Castro’s death was most welcomed! I hate the guy and the negative impact he’s had on so many for the greed, not even good, of the few. I’m just glad I don’t have cable to have to run across a lot of the news and discussion about his life. Just shut up already!

The T-series poems are tanka composed while I was not engaged in some activity during which I frequently composed poetry. That is why these are called the Inactive Tanka collection.
