Baby shrugging apologizes

A baby screaming for independence:
subhuman attempting to defuse
mongrel linguistic traditions.

The infant's mouth urged dialogue,
apologized for differences,
nonetheless drew protests.

Spiritual leader -- told the liar that he is --
wasn't breathing, holding a statement:
preservation of respiratory terminology.

Grisly Incentives Decided

Evaluating collectible traditions, China stages
Tibetan political agency. White House coughs,
Obama reveals why all the following leaked:

Alien-ridden, potentially religious Netflix media;
Steve Jobs postage stamp; Exiled Dalai Lama industry;
Gotham City linguistic tax agency.

US told in low-key stages, “Enough.” Proposals
and a billion strongly-depicted merits
hosted, offering up president preservation.

A Familiar Moment

Brigades of the dismissed
From North and South
And heavily armed with head and hand

Riot as artists of walking
And singing the song
Of an unseen motherland

And the police nearby
Are seized and carried
In arms of breakthrough passion

Soweto Set Seven

The candles were black
and they had wounds on their backs.
The Razor blades were in their school bags.

Wrapped up formal
in a place to do good work.
Talks of Saturday.

To be set free.
The death sentence commuted to life imprisonment
of seven prisoners, three.

Violence Hacking Rate

Lunchtime in the heart
Plastic bullets and shotgun pellets
Intensified week by week

Unofficial hacking
Hour long conversation
Sleeping pills

Fresh boost, fallen youth
Target set removed
Focus forward... no longer

Monsters Promised Freedom

An angel is poised
On the edge of the Promised Land
A frail but perfect vision

A dark storm clouds her eyes
In thunderous displeasure
Her mouth is a swift dagger

She is unapologetic
In her forceful defence
Of freedom

Pay floods CLEARED

Overturned Prime assault -
Indecent government rape teachers’
employment. The failed education organisation

charges Cameron with a flood of
criticism. The current verdict is agreed:
prosecution dictate

higher veteran pay and floods
In Crown court. The storms will
protect the conditions of the country.

Score, With Paleoclimatologist

Event One: Signage strewn in the streets.
People park on the on-ramps.
Thousands of microorganisms in winter.

Event Two: A sliding tree broken, and scorched grapevines.
Bronze bears lick the burnt stems
to identify a long-dead ocean.

Event Three: A broken sediment of colored charcoal
suggests gnarled rain
pointing fingers at the past millennium.
