The blood haiku

Wars run in blood down
palace walls, in blood do wars
run down palace walls.

– Niebla (© 2013)

Written for blood at Haiku Heights.

A rather somber one inspired by William Blake’s poem London and by the thought that there are profiteers (who tend to live well and reside in palaces) behind every war, be it the arms industry, the oil industry or the mining industry.
