If you can operate this computer,
you can operate this missile, it’s the future.
We’ve made firing missiles,
like a computer game, they travel miles.
No more will you have to slip and slide,
in the blood of your foe, as they try to hide.
Grappling face to face sword in hand,
this of you, we would never demand.
Why all the war and destruction?
Money, it acts like suction.
Click, click – pause,
boom, boom, canned applause.
A soothing voice, ‘ you have now reached your . . ‘,
‘destroyed your desti . . beep . . target’ oh the gore!
I have now published volume three of Haiku and Selected Poems. All my ebooks are free so if you enjoy Haiku or other forms of poetry why not check it out.
In three years you could own this car
There’s just a small percentage on our APR
We can see your chomping at the bit
Surely your account can take the hit
Just a small deposit and it’s yours
True, our logo is a set of claws
But just look, the car has features galore
Motoring in this will never be a bore
After three years we will ask
Another lump sum, no small task
And now the car is worth much less
Than you have been paying us, bless
But you could exchange your car
You will be admired near and far
Why not go around with us once more
We have credit packages galore
