Counting on My Fingers

People Over Politics, Survival Over Surrender, World Over Wealth!


May the New Year Bring us a Safer, Happier, Healthier, and Kinder World

And Thank You for Bringing Me into Your Lives.

Blue Plate Special ~ Philip Brent Harris


My famished soul, hungers, yearns, lingers.
Crawling through horrors, terror, real, imagined,
Light-blasted sky flooded, illuminates nothing.
Offended, darkness turns away, offers no succor.

Sup with the greedy devil, you’ll go hungry always.
Skeletal fingers tightly grasping runcible spoons.
The bounty on the plate far beyond your reach.
Let go, rejoice, count on your fingers to eat.

Ill-mannered, gauche, petty, ignorant fools will say.
Ignore them, tightly they continue to clutch, hang on.
Their shiny bowls make staccato taps upon the table.
Fingers made and were made long before silver spoons.


Peace is Purpose,
Nonviolence is Strength,
Diversity is Unity,
Empathy is Empowerment

Unite the World!
