Tramping through winter snowfall
Lithe, and bare chested
Like our Vladimir Putin

“When we see Despots prosper in their weakness,
When we see Falsehood triumph in its folly,
When we see Evil, Tyranny, Corruption,
Grin, grow and fatten;”

Head of State Haiku

Mister Obama
Husband, Father, President
Man of Confidence

This is not the first time I have been up against a challenge to create a piece of digital storytelling that tap danced on the edge of politics: a very uncomfortable place for me. In 2009 a composer friend of mine asked if I would create a music video for a choral composition of hers that resulted in my creative artist within making a very vulnerable decision to use photos from the 1st 100 days of President Obama’s terms of presidency. You can read all about that journey, the final video, and the writing of this Haiku at http://wp.me/p3zfrO-u4
