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.

Coward’s Blood

Coward’s Blood ~~~~~ CRIME SCENE, DO NOT CROSS A sad, sick reminder of all our loss. A yellow streak down leaders’ backs, too cowardly, corrupt to end these attacks. Mass murders, victims, now names. Pain and anger for their families remain. Senate’s money machine oiled with blood. Let’s sweep them away in an election flash-flood. […]

Last Note

Last Note ~~~~~ More bullets shot from an automatic gun. You are sure, these must be the last ones. Yet, once more death and once more pain And, we all understand it’ll happen again.

Whose Sweet Face?

~~~~~ While club and maul and stick and mace may have been effective to smash a face, they all require study, practice and intent, maim or murder always what was meant. While the spear and stone or an arbalest, increased striking distance, were not fast. Designed to kill prey, as dangerous as us finished more […]

Which Three Letters?

This is a piece I originally posted last May, but with the shooting at the synagogue in Poway, I feel like I need to post it every day. ~~~~~ Which Three Letters? ~~~~~ NRA, DOA, RIP ~~~~ The NRA pushes guns without any regret, as they myriad  Needless Requiems Abet. Doubtless they think they deserve […]

So Little Has Changed ~ Verse II

from the collected writings of Phileas the Lesser ~~~~~ Remember each number is someone’s mother, son, father, daughter, aunt, uncle and, it may be anyone. Rich or poor, special on either end of the spectrum, you can be shot by a gun, dove, hawk, smart, dumb. In or from an ivory tower its fiery wrath […]
