Strickened strategy
Sacrificed a winning streak
And stifled success

Rapport not rebuked
Or rebuffed reconciled a
Recluse’s reluctance

Outright oversight
Obscured likely odious and
Obnoxious  ogre

Wrecked in bid to wrest
Wisdom from the wayward he
Wobbled  in weird woes

Written for Chev's CARPE DIEM #241 with prompt  - sacrifice and Real Toad's Open Link Mondays


  1. whoa, nice perspective shot. i like all the alliteration as well hank...sounds like a dastardly dude, willing to let all go to waste in oversight & missed opportunity

  2. He wobbled indeed, from the very first verse, teetering in alliteration, I guessed his defeat.

  3. Hank

    I think his strategy was a bit wobbly ..makes me wonder about his view.

    Enjoy your day my friend

  4. Great shot, n ice take on views as they can be construed

  5. I love the combination of words and visual. The alliteration is just perfect. Many thanks.

    Greetings from London.

  6. you are an alliterative genius!

  7. I hope he comes up for round two.
    Nice series, Hank. Life is like that
    for those who push for advancement.

  8. Apparently I'm out of the loop on BMW and how sacrifice pertains to it. However, your haiku are indeed interesting and the alliteration adds to its power.

    1. Not directly! But the unusual angle jives with the mood of the nonsensical. It's rather funny from that angle.


  9. S-ome R-ealize, O-thers W-eep. :)

  10. The pic of the Beamer building is rather odd in a satisfying way, Hank. Makes it look almost jolly, rotund. (But then, so are the CEOs...) Noticed that the alliteration began to form the word "sorrow" for me... sure that was unintended, but then, you never know where these ramblings will take us, right? Peace, AMy

  11. Nice, the different views tend not to be seen often
