Waste – A Haiku Challenge


waste not want
not to store excess
but plenty

it was such a waste
four long years of higher ed
just to flip burgers

the cruelest fate
one’s body wasting away
with one’s mind intact

it’s a waste of time
to try changing someone’s mind
who thinks with their heart

a life of worry
wasted on cheap wine and painkillers
death not survival
