haikumages

Unfortunately / so much death, that our heartbreak / is now commonplace.

NYT - Kabul Afghanistan - 4/19/2016

I wrote this “extra” haiku (senryu, actually) among many written and posted when the last big terrorist mass murder was committed by ISIS. Today, sadly, there was a mass murder in Kabul, Afghanistan, a new atrocity committed, this time by the Taliban, another evil, foul group of zealots and madmen. No doubt, the Taliban wanted to remind the world that they still exist, are capable of, and interested in committing mass murder, even though ISIS/ISIL has dominated the news, and had most of our attention recently…

The point of the poem is proven, as I did not have long to wait before yet another atrocity, another tragedy, and new heartbreak.
