pussywhipped traitor

follows Isis bride in jihad

death by cop

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

Jihadi Mom leaves

nursing infant to slaughter

holiday party guests.

New baby girl discarded,

birthed to be terrorist prop.

 

 

Sorry for my politically incorrect vent. This was too close to home. Terrorist attack in building where my granddaughter as an infant received assessment and physical therapy plan to train her young brain to overcome her paralysis. She is a pediatric stroke survivor, born with only half a brain and consequently paralyzed on one side.

The second haiku was my thoughts exactly. What parent would leave a little baby... What people would do such things... Animals.

 

Good venting!

 

And I'm so sorry to hear about your granddaughter and that would be terrifying.

 

Thank you for the post.

Thanks MP, I've made a few changes to the tanka. I'm afraid these were originally written as a knee jerk reaction to information on the news. I've made better word selections after thinking about it. I should rethink certain word selections in the first but the original has to stand.

 

And thanks for you comment about my granddaughter. She is 9 now, she walks, she runs, she talks, she sings. She is an intelligent, funny, active 9 year old. She just has no use of her right hand and she wears a brace on her leg. Otherwise she is a normal if somewhat kookie, little girl.

I'm so happy to hear your granddaughter is well and active! That is awesome news!

 

And sometimes the original writes are the most powerful!

I understand your frustration, put perfectly into form. I am a very late "twitterer", and have been so enraged at my Texas legislature and executive recently....I hope things get better for your spirit.

Hi Marty, Nice to see you back here. That was just a knee jerk reaction. Those creeps are now gone now and there are other things far more important and much more uplifting to occupy my thoughts and energy.
