#MondayHaiku – quintet


Learning to relax
the syllable count can be


People are going
nuts, bolts, screws about the news –
Truth – a healing balm.


Mutually assured
destruction – the worst outcome –
none survives the blast.


Information rules!
Librarians understand.
Who’s in charge of truth?


London handmaiden
flies under all the radar.
Fingers sticky still.

and the bonus round (6X6)

Be your own librarian.
Learn the information rules.
You don’t need their intermediation,
Their tricks, their trinkets, their narratives.
Just wake up tomorrow morning
And say “Bye, bye, Pharaoh.”
