4. All of us alive/
Get our way most of the time/
So be more grateful/
#haiku

5. Living simply proves/
Survival’s a miracle/
show some gratitude/
#haiku

6. From the Boson-Higgs/
To the clean water we drink/
Miracles abound/
#haiku

7. Tribulations give/
The existence we enjoy/
Some necessities/
#haiku

8a. Even enemies/
Offer something important/
In this crazy life/
#haiku

8b. Diseases provide/
Something important to life/
That we can’t perceive/
#haiku

9. Necessities are/
Food, company & shelter/
Be grateful for them/
#haiku

10. We do not need more/
Our species thrives with good* work/
Not with luxuries/
#haiku *hard

11. Life’s simple pleasures:/
Hearth, Food, friends, & time to think/
Are true luxuries/
#haiku

12. Luxuries are not/
Things you can buy and save up/
They are our freedoms/
#haiku

13. Freedom ain’t pretty:/
With it we can make mistakes/
& Hurt our neighbors/
#haiku

14. Free to be tacky/
Corny-self-righteous-jerks is/
Also important/
#haiku

15. We’re free to believe/
The most absurd of theories/
Of our creation/
#haiku

16. Freedom demands our/
Tolerance and acceptance/
Of people we don’t like/
#haiku

17. “G_d’s” snake handlers/
Have the right to spit venom/
No matter my thoughts/
#haiku

18. Freedom makes demands/
That seem so cockamamie/
But we must relent/
#haiku

19. Nothing’s guaranteed/
No sacred life is promised/
We are but mortals/
#haiku

20. So I’ll try to help/
And accept the eccentric/
To let freedom live/
#haiku

A. We allow the rich/
To “get away with murder”/
Because fame matters/
#haiku
