Political Poetry: Haiku

In struggling to bring it back to poetry I found Spark of Freedom: Poem: Anti-Oppression Haiku and then went a-googling and discovered political haiku from our neighbours to the south, and from Canada, more specifically, from Dr. L. P. Visentin, an artist and a poet who is the President and Vice-Chancellor of Brandon University, the university which is conferring an honourary Doctorate on fiction writer, Miriam Toews.

Cool, huh? I'm certain that the U of Regina and other universities -- not to mention writers -- would benefit from having poets in the Administration!
