Richard III in Haiku

Iconic speeching

Easy manipulation

Dreams, curses, murder.

Fragile failed peace forced

Imprison’ment and betrayal,

Deception rampant.

Murder persuasion

False piety prevailing,

Tyrant becomes king.

Grief strengthens curses,

Forces gather ‘gainst cruelty

Stage set for battle.

Self-loathing tyrant

Lost, unhorsed in infamy

Dreams prove just desserts.
