Response: a cascading poem #OctPoWriMo 

In the middle of the chaos
The talking-heads rhetoric is a bandage
We tune it out and think we are free

Looking around at the world
I see where we stand
In the middle of the chaos

The people seek answers
What they receive are speeches
The talking-heads rhetoric is a bandage

We find no comfort from that
How the do we respond to this
We tune it out and think we are free

Grace: a #haiku

the old man of flesh
tied to the disease of sin
Grace slices us free

Inspired by this week’s prompt from Ronovan Writes.

(Several hours later now I just realized used the wrong form of “tide” in my haiku. Even though it doesn’t really match the parameters I like the result so I’m leaving it as-is.)
