A diary titled "Poem: We are the 99%" by Killer of Sacred Cows demonstrates the depth of feeling about what is happening with the Occupy movement.

The website "We Are the 99%" provides personal testimonies and images of our fellow citizens.

In a way, these are examples of artistic expressions suggested by Anonymous in its recent video.

So here's an opportunity to read and share haiku on this topic/movement.

Here's what wiki has to say about Haiku and here is a site that will help you write one.

The contest is simple. Submit your own and/or give some love (recc.) to the one(s) you like.

The prize will be a cash contribution to DKos member and diarist, Tool, on behalf of whoever gets the most votes (reccs.) If you don't know who Tool is, read his first time diary "It Started With An Eviction Notice #OccupyWallStreet" posted today. Your diarist will contribute $1 multiplied by the number of reccs received for the winning haiku to Tool to invest in whatever is necessary.

Tipping this diary does not count; only tipping haikus submitted as comments.

Feel free to share this diary far and wide...

Time and Place
Kos we can!"

Submit your haiku now!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
