__ Politicians in fearful fights for themselves, as the gains for  humanity are ignored... and lost.

__ At noon two hounds fight, yet under the moon they become a team, and tree a raccoon.  Again they fight, each hound fearing the other will run away with their prize. 
__ The raccoon escapes.  

strained music 
of this stolen harmony
lost deeds

Delightful raccoon story.
A new one for me. Enjoyed!

The haiku too of course.

Perfect! It is exactly what is happening.
Can you believe I have actually been coon hunting with my dad?

hooray for the raccoon, unless it's knocking down the garbage pail

A wonderful tale of the dogs and raccoon...that so accurately reflects the state of our politicians!
Speaking personally, I am growing so bored with this Brexit issue!
It is all we hear...all the rangling and bickering.
I wish the politicians would simply honour the referendum vote...and take us out if Europe gracefully!
There, rant of the day over! Sorry about that, Doug! They drive me crazy though! Lol

Back to the reason I'm here...your haiku is wonderful!!😊😊

"Y", So glad to see your visit and read your comment!
__ Stepping aside from the cruelty some people would say I have applied here, that seemingly potential demise of that raccoon in the tree, the metaphor (juxtaposition?) is that... we dogs of need, cannot allow our "politicians" to overlook, and negate or allow our goals to escape!
__ Are there any statespeople left? _m
