If We Were to Cease

If We Were to Cease ~~~~~ 1816 I feel the fool tonight, though certain      I hope we will crush in its birth My words, sentiments echo      The aristocracy of our moneyed corporations Statesmen, leaders long dead      Which dare already to challenge Why should now be otherwise      Our government to a trial […]

Silently Across the Night

Silently Across the Night ~~~~~ Moving silently across the night-dark earth, Fires burn ever, Fluttering banners, gold and red, to mark the dead, Ever brighter, Projected onto shifting smoke, Ever hotter. An ever-changing, tattered screen, white, gray, black, Consuming all. No animal, no insect, no blade of grass remains For eyes to see. Glimpses through […]

IMMODEST PROPOSAL  

IMMODEST PROPOSAL   ~~~~~ I have vowed to mark this tragic date by offering my Immodest Proposal until we come to our senses regarding gun violence. Unfortunately, I may have to post this the rest of my life.   An IMMODEST PROPOSAL   For Preventing the Poor Children of the People of the United States of America From Being […]

Can You?

Can You? ~~~~~ Life might seem like endless chores; Some say better than heavenly choirs. You would have to live on love alone, Unless endless singing helps to atone. It’s all made up, no matter your belief. Can you find solace in another’s grief? Because, if my faith right, yours is not, Such a sad […]

Near but Far from Home

Near but Far from Home ~~~~~ Out for a day, near but far from home, Where do you think this child might roam? Hither, thither and even yon, What might I chance upon? A mighty tree, With children at play, becomes a tower, Though it changes by the hour. A hidden trail beneath a massive […]

Just How It Goes

Just How It Goes ~~~~~ I’m an old white guy, I shouldn’t rap. If I even try, They’ll call it crap. But I am troubled, In every way. My stress is doubled, On every day. Terror and fright On the news, Each and every night, But not my views. Toil and strife, It creeps inside […]

Man Makes the Clothes

Man Makes the Clothes ~~~~~ Since I was small, I have so often heard it said, clothes make the man, that it’s become clichéd. Dress for success, mantra many a parent chants. Only first impression, there’s no second chance. Wise words some whiz said, logical conclusion; words with great potential to generate confusion. When imitation […]

Do Us A Favor

Do Us A Favor ~~~~~ For all the shooters out there, I have a request, whether you hail from north, south, east or west. If shooting many people jumps into your head; do us a favor, stay home, shoot yourself instead. ~~~~~ Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength,  Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment ~~~~~ […]
