This is truly an expressive tanka, strong and telling thoughts. Very well done!

This is well done and sadly true of the world we live in. Newfound ugly is right. As if the old ugly wasn't enough.

I can see that you've been overdosing on the news coverage this past week or so. It seems a little like watching a accident in slow motion (not your poem which is wonderful, the events of the world).
