A co-write with Rob Graber. Thank you Rob:) I got introduced to this modern type of haiku through the sarcasmsociety.com/haiku

BP oil spill inspirit. (Sarcastic haiku suite)

, a way of life.
Birds that will not fly again:

Costs so well contained!

Black gold keeps shining

Fishes 'lulled' by the black waves
Frankenstein's screw falls

Crowd psychology ~

Mind-drifters and shape-shifters
Clouds in the sky.

Many congratulations! The poems are contemporary. They reflect the essence of environmental importance.
Literature would undoubtedly help in minimising the misery caused by the human beings, mad after materialistic achievements.

I agree with John . . . sarcasm requires a sensitivity and sensibility that sees through the pretense and sham and reveals the dark truth. A tragedy the effects of which will last longer than we will live . . . the rape of Nature defines our age, and perhaps our epitath.

We need a "Way of Life" museum to document what, as a species, wasted and destroyed in our quest for fame fortune and control.
Good shot at the oiligarch ;-)

You raise a good point - though sarcastic, it is also, not suprisingly, quite sentimental to some. I think the choice of words and imagery you put across is serious - so on a serious note - this 'haiku suite' was just a pleasantly brilliant read. You deserve an applaud.
