Once again we hear of senseless shootings in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio. In a world filled with stress and divisiveness this has sadly become something to be expected. Without addressing the root problem of mental illness it will continue on into the future. The song of the Katydid reminds us that life will go on in spite of us.
Sounds of shots echo
Evil rears its ugly head
Katydid still sings

Frank Tassone asks us to write a Haikai poem that includes the Katydid.
