Political Haiku Collection: Always Free Speech Is Needed!

Poetry By: Philip Roberts
Literary fiction



Many of these poems were written during the run-up to the 2008 U.S. Federal election. I am no longer as keen on Barack Obama as I was two years ago.

CELESTIAL JOY (II)
Celestial joy
At this the festive season;
And no more hate, please!

A FESTIVE TIME?
(II)
At a time of peace
Why is there so much hatred,
Polluting the Earth?

THE LORD'S BIRTHDAY (II)
Christ was born this time
Two thousand years past.
His word of 'love' seems lost.

OBAMA, THE POET (II)
Didn't know Obama
Had such a large clan? And
they all write haiku!

ALL THE REDNECKS IN AMERICA
All the rednecks in
America, could not stop,
Justice happening!

ALWAYS FREE SPEECH
Why lament free speech?
Indians want free speech too!
Nothing to lament.

ALWAYS FREE SPEECH IS NEEDED!
Al Sharpton? Who's he?
Freedom of speech is needed!
But not Al Sharpton!

AMERICA TODAY
Gross restrictions
On speech. Fifth Amendment gone:
America today!

ANTI-FASCISM
Anti-Fascists all
Support democracy,
Unlike Republicans.

ANTI-TERRORIST (OR FASCIST?)
Lock up the people
Just in case they cause trouble!
We don't need no proof!

ROTTEN EGGS
Rotten eggs spoil like
Rotten apples in a bowl;
Let's all keep it clean!

SKAT KATS
Can we please stop the
cattishness? And just go back
To writing haiku?

AN IQ PROBLEM?
Rather than our age
Perhaps our IQ's needed?
To cut down the spite!

THE BUSH DAZE
How could anyone think
Of voting Republican,
After the Bush daze!

DEMOCRACY IS BACK

Democracy is
Well and truly back, thanks to;
Barack Obama!

DICTATORS
Dictators govern
Reigning over the people;
Grown fat off our taxes.

ELECTION 2008 U.S.A.
Vote Barack or John
In the end who really cares?
Just let it finish!

ELECTION DAZE
Let the election pass
So we can all stop writing,
Of Obama & McCain.

ENDLESS DAZE
We're endlessly dazed
As the election hoo-ha,
Goes on in the States.

FEAR THIS MAN!
Sadam Hussein? Or
Sado-Insane? Fear this man;
For he is a monster!

FLESH IN THE FURNACE (II)
Flesh in the furnace:
People cooked like animals;
Germany insane.

FREE SPEECH
Fighting oppression
I always speak the truth;
No matter who it hurts!

GO ON, OBAMA
Go on, Obama
Bring sanity back once more,
To an insane world!

THE HOLOCAUST
Remembrances of
Death camps, of people burning;
Of the holocaust.

IRAQI NIHILISM
Sado-Insane, both
By name and by actions:
Iraqi nihilism.

THE LORD'S BIRTHDAY (I)
Christ was born this time
Two thousand years past. But his
word of 'love' is lost.

McCAIN DID!
Obama may not
Have paid his half-brother,
But I bet McCain did!

OBAMA FOR PM

Yes, let Obama
Rule
Australia. He couldn't
Do worse than Kevin Rudd.

OBAMA, THE HERO
Obama's a hero
Dealing with redneck fools;
McCain's a zero.

OBAMA, THE POET (I)
Didn't know Obama
Had such a large clan? Or
They all write haiku?

DICTATORS GOVERN
Dictators govern
Reigning over the people;
Grown fat off taxes.

OBAMA WON
All the bigotry
And all the race hatred failed;
For Obama won!

THE ONLY HOPE
Barack Obama
Is the world's last hope,
To return to sanity.

PLAY THE MAN, NOT THE COLOUR!
Racist, redneck feebs
Oppose Obama's colour!
Shame, shame on you all!

PLEASE GOD, LET IT END
Please God, let it end
The
US Election bores me,
Please, let it end!

PLEASE, MR OBAMA
Please, Mr Obama
Don't let fascist rednecks,
Keep you for your great task!

A serious Hate Crime? Let's

When you call Obama zero,
McCain a hero??????

Redneck rebels want
The war against sanity,
To last forever!

REPUBLICANS LIKE THE NAZIS
Like Republicans
Nazis couldn't take criticism;
No matter how fair!

A SELF-MADE MONSTER!
Frankenstein's monster
Raged like Hussein; but
Hussein was self made.

SURGERY OF TERROR
Mengele performed
Surgery of terror,
On unwilling patients.

TOO MANY DAZE

Please finish soon. The campaign
has gone on too long.

Just vote Barack
To bring democracy back,
Vote back democrats!

CELESTIAL JOY (I)
Celestial joy
At this the festive season;
And no more spite, please!

WE WON
We won, the good won
Barack's president-elect,
Forget John McCain!

WHEN THE OIL RUNS OUT
When the oil runs out
Will America stop,
Invading Arab lands?

SAVER OF THE WORLD
The great Barack
Potential saver of the world,
Let's all embrace him!
