Haiku LXII - LXV: on contemporary history

(Haiku LXII)
they came from the east
stinging wasps and killer bees
forecast: scattered clouds

(Haiku LXIII)
they came from the south
humming drones and blasting dams
forecast: sun and bright

(Haiku LXIV)
they came from the north
black birds in formation flight
forecast: breezy spells

(Haiku LXV)
they came from the west
time to write the musical
boosting cast careers
