Daily Prompt: Bewildered

despite the bravado
what he doesn’t know

the citizens who
question his sanity

A few quick (political) senryu about the subject of the day

About pedometergeek

A pharmacist by profession, a haiku poet by nature, I read and write. I have a book of haiku, Ohayo Haiku, and another somewhat alternative haiku book, Three Breaths, but write other genres. I also read...lots of novels! My favorite is, and remains, Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged but I am also a big Harry Potter fan. I truly am a pedometer geek strapping on my pedometer as soon as I awaken.

    Politics are never black and white.
    I think there are still too many secrets.
    And perhaps some that needed see the light of day.
    Not everything is ‘newsworthy’
    And so I often seek something in the news that is/was good.
    Like the Texas teen who took over driving the school bus when the driver had some health issue.
    There is something to be said about being in the right place at the right time.


    • Absolutely, I agree with you. Politics are never black and white.

      I wish there was more positive news, but it gets buried all too often.

      I wanted to write a short and dirty answer to the prompt of the day. I don’t usually even respond to them, but I had just finished watching the news and I was bewildered by some of the statements being made. I am sorry if I offended you, JP.

        No offense at all. It is scary though when we fear even mentioning a politicians name for ‘fear of reprisal’ – because ‘they’ are paranoid.


  2. I don’t mention politicians’ names…I have become paranoid because some of them are paranoid. I shouldn’t be. This is the land of free speech, but greater men than me have been accused of treasonous activity.


  3. Yes, bewildered…a perfect word to describe how so many of us are feeling. Thank you, Nan.
