Halloween Haiku

Jack’s dear grin
Candle-lit mortal peril
Remember death’s smile

God bless,

Riddled on Thick!

I transfigure like the Lord
I lie on an old oak board
Lo! Appearance as if new!
That’s just what I do
What am I?

God bless,

Feeling a little chilly?
This will warm you up
A brisk run in the morning
And a full coffee cup

God bless,

The Camel

Given gold of gallant weight
Sitting on several silver plates
Enough wealth for the sake
Of the camel that lost his eye

Wetted worms woven well
Priceless porcelain pitchers fell
Into the ring of the exit bell
Which the camel did espy
Centuries have I sojourned to see
With the value of an ever vanished plea
Who cares for crooked cranks like me
After the camels die?

God bless,
Joshua Fahey

Love is law's fulfillment

How can man be lawless
How could that be right
When love is law's fulfillment
When love makes day from night

God bless,

Though the Rich

Though the rich own
As long as the poor
Eat rice off the floor
And have not a door
God will not condone
The rich keeping store
While others are sleeping on stone

Though the rich grow
As long as there are
People who starve
While begging on tar
God throws below
The rich keeping far
More than they need that they stow

God bless,
Joshua Fahey
