Grapes of wrath haikus

This is a group of haikus that cover Grapes of Wrath

 

We start with Tom Joad

He killed a man, just got free

He’ll travel back home

 

Meets his old preacher

Casy asks to go along

Finds his family

 

Family is glad

They are going to the west

Grandpa is stubborn

 

Grandpa dies sadly

The pain is only starting

They meet the Wilsons

 

Noah wants to stay

Grandma dies and Ma is changed

The group reached Cali

 

No work to be found

Cops break up the migrant camps

Casy sent to jail

 

Connie runs away

Uncle Tom tries to leave too

Group is so fragile

 

Reach government camp

New environment, so nice

Tom gets work digging

 

Cops try to start fights

Security kicks out men

Efficient group work

 

Joads can’t find any work

The Joads have to leave again

They get a small job

 

Tom will find Casy

Casy is leading the men

Casy is murdered

 

Tom kills officer

The Joads have to run again

Tom will hide nearby

 

Tom decides to go

Al and Aggie are engaged

Sadness soon to come

 

Floods and depression

Rosasharn lost her baby

What will happen now?
