Rolling in His Grave

Rolling in His Grave ~~~~~ Like the narcissistic needs of a reborn Christian’s god, Donald Trump requires constant praise and adoration. 100,000-plus Americans dead; he wants us to applaud. He’ll say, do and promise anything for your adulation. It seems there is nothing too incendiary or outrageous Like when he stands lying, about his feeble […]

Ain’t We Great?

Ain’t We Great? ~~~~~ This is posted with a special shout out to Eric Wayne, multi-discipline artist, critic and someone who has shown this blog and, by extension, me a lot of love in recent weeks.

A Dream That Is Real

A Dream That Is Real ~~~~~ A dream that is real as a promise; It’s something would become us. And if in becoming, we became, No need anything stay the same. Although you cannot believe me, When you do, you’ll not leave be. Truth, within your heart lies bliss, A dream that is real as […]

Without Wicked Toys

Without Wicked Toys ~~~~~ Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength, Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment When life is hard, we’re all still together. When we choose to be; when we gather.

If Quick or Dust

If Quick or Dust ~~~~~ Sickness is Health, Ignorance is Strength, Insurrection is Freedom, Trumpery is Reality It’s not for the workers who don’t get by, Nor for the small business that’ll go bust.

Soaked

Soaked ~~~~~ We went out for a walk and shopping. Humid, rain promised, hot and sweaty. I am temporarily not wearing my mask, Though my car window’s open to the air. Vehicle parks beside me, a pickup truck And on goes my mask, soaked in sweat. I see people passing, who don’t believe, No mask, […]

Not in Truth

Not in Truth ~~~~~ What are the many reasons We tell ourselves each day? The reasons which explain How and why we live our lives. Can we reconcile them with truth, Intrinsic truth, not our own? That which is true, despite What we may think, despite Anything we may believe. For belief is only, ever […]

WYGIWYSNISM

WYGIWYSNISM ~~~~~ What You Get Is What You See. Need I Say More? “Is that the best you could do?” one of them asked. “I think I would do much better, if you just relaxed. “Maybe you would do better, if you’d learned how.” “A fine time you have picked to think of that now. […]

At the Tone, the Time Will Be…

At the Tone, the Time Will Be… ~~~~~ The time has come to think this through, Time to consider, choose how we will live. Sheltered in time, about both me and you; Time to know, for all we take we must give. ~~~~~ Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength, Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment […]
