Headline Haiku

This is my form of haiku which embraces our modern world by using only words culled from the headlines and sub-heads found in my daily newspaper. I hope to discover a sense, a tone of daily life. I do not change words, other than in the use of capitalization and hyphenated words previously used adjectively.

Rain signs provide scare
Biodiversity risk
Safety now in doubt

Library access
Gentlemen, I understand
Coming soon life itself

Congressional sweep
Sharing in doubt, yet denied
Elusive solutions

Law into own hands
Warriors assembly walks
Questions of market

Labor conditions
Government interventions
We do not believe

Wealthy view budget
Opposition proposal
Unrest, hang somebody

Bombing creates police
Witness their communities
Rifle sights draw wrath

Injuries moving
Better hardly good enough
Recalling those lost

Losing interest
Exclusion of gay spouses
Digging for green
