I am the Very Model of a Modern Mogul Criminal

Variation on a W.S. Gilbert libretto ~~~~~ I am the very model of modern mogul criminal. I will tell you lies, smiling while I screw you, with intent inimical. I’ve stolen from everyone I’ve known; critics call me delusional I babble nonsense when I speak, I am terribly confusional. My enemies say I’m mad or […]

Mirror, Mirror

~~~~~ We  know less is more and more is less. Great description of our current  mess. How much will you fight for, sacrifice, Will you overlook corruption and vice? Do you know where you are, why and When, who you want to be by the end? If you accept even one mass shooting Carrying even […]

Entropy Increases, Ya Boy Howdy

~~~~~ Why don’t they come haul his ass away? He gets crazier with everything he say. He lives for himself, all alone in his own head. It wouldn’t matter if we all dropped dead. He never ever does the things he oughta. Though I’m sure he would hug his daughter. He’s a senile, demented nut […]

Dressed in Motley Camouflage

~~~~~ I have shared this post twice. The first time in 2013 and the second at the beginning of 2019. These questions and answers seem, to me, more important than ever. ~~~~~ Questions What would you do if you could do anything? Are you sure? Who would you be if you could be anyone? Do […]

Professed beliefs underlie daily intolerance, Which is usually much less than skin deep. Yet we all move to the same diurnal dance, Wake up in […]

If We Fail

~~~~~ Who will we be if we fail to remember The evil we have committed over time? That’s not us we say, but we’re wrong. Angry mob descended from kidnappers Angry mob descended from murderers. A people who thought slavery their due. A people who knew genocide their right. A people who turn a blind […]

The Inside More

~~~~~ I had a thought yesterday And it really made me think, When people stop and pray For a better life, a new sink, Are words they think, say An attempt to hoodwink Themselves? You, say hey, That sound like double-think. What you want, at heart, may Not match the words you think, When you […]

If We Keep Going…

~~~~~ What’s a person to do, When every day there’s something new? War and violence, pandemic, Unsanctioned, sanctioned murder, a nod, a wink. Systemic racism, top to bottom, nation-wide, Though you’ll say, don’t look at me. If not you, who would you blame instead? Do you, like me, have no safe place to stand, Numbered […]

We Must Change

~~~~~ The call was loud and clear today, The jackboots of Ares set to march. Petty baboon pleader, a sullen fool. Tear gas, storm troopers, photo ops For ego strokes, pats his own back. We must scream No, bottom to top Take to the streets, for it must stop. We must gather in peace and […]
