Carpe Diem Tan Renga Challenge #36, JRB’s “In a foreign field”

I’m honoured to have Carpe Diem select my haiku as today’s prompt.

My additional lines to the haiku…

in a foreign field
the wind still invokes their names
the blood red poppies
99% give thanks
whilst the 1% take Stocks

Smiles, love and laughter

    The 99% is in no position to do so. That’s the tragedy of the big businesses cornering the market! Wonderful write JRB and thanks for your haiku!
