Tanka T131

Stood in pouring rain –
Rather than breathe cigarette
Smoke in bus shelter –
Cause a little cold water
Ain’t gonna hurt nobody

The sole passenger –
On a public transit bus –
From boarding to home –
I got chaffeured around town
On a single bus ticket

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

Saw a portrait of
An unsolved murder victim –
And could only think –
How photography just ain’t –
As good as it used to be

The most effective
Civil disobedience –
Could be a protest –
Against Daylight Savings Time –
Keep living on the old time
