Some Have, Some Will

~~~~~ Some have called me crazy, so many things worse. Some have called me lazy; work smarter no curse. Some have called me hazy; as I accept the diverse. Some have called me mazy; they’re sure I rehearse. Some have called me liberal; I always seek to give. Some have called me gullible; that’s not […]

So Below

Oh what a trial computers are, yet we cannot live without them. Their bits, bytes, drivers, apps, to most, as magical as a unicorn. Like people, get filled with junk, catch viruses like an alien BEM. We try to tend them carefully, but in time they grow old, forlorn. Like pets, love them, invest in […]

A ‘70s Lament and a Moral

~~~~~   Hearing the music of a long forgotten song, A classic, yet we don’t remember its name. It’s not always even what we would choose. Life is its own agenda, some win, some lose. Reminds us, can’t see what tomorrow brings. How any moment might be paupers or kings. What I would say, choose […]

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 […]

Balancing Act

~~~~~ Where is the light we keep in the window That guides each of us all the way home? What time we ponder wait and wonder; Will our answers ever remain unknown? How can the illness and greed of the few Control the course all our lives will take? With the time now to think […]

Even When We Don’t

~~~~~ As always, in the middle of the night, Some things will be wrong, some right. It’s not even always what you choose. Life has its own agenda, win or lose. No one knows what tomorrow brings, Our next now, may be paupers, kings. Still, we must always live in this now. Do it, even […]

Dive Into the Sky

~~~~~ Do you buy self-help books by ones, twos Or do you buy them by the bloody dozens? Stop halfway through, dejected, confused, Yet sing their praises, to friends or cousins. Do you read the advice, but don’t follow it And then you wonder why it doesn’t work? You sought tools to scramble from your […]

Whorled Enough and Time

~~~~~ How many names will not be remembered? What numberless stories will never get told? Life on the Earth, with no guaranteed word; No one may remember, when you grow old. Is this any way important, when we’re loved? Mothers, fathers, family and friends abound. To chosen families, we are fitted and gloved. With a […]


~~~~~ Death frightens us Because we’re told It should frighten us, Because we do not Know what is next. Yet, that is the same Description we have Of our life and living. We will never, ever Know what is next. VOTE, November 3, 2020! ~~~~~ Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength, Diversity is Unity, Empathy […]
