In Their Stupidity

~~~~~ Men, In their stupidity, try to control women. It is not merely power and sex, but fear, jealousy. What they have done and we have allowed, is a sin. Women as equals, would better the world, you’d see. ~~~~~ Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength,  Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment ~~~~~ Please, leave […]

They Might Grow Up

~~~~~ Emergency, emergency, everybody to clear the streets, The cowboys are coming, the cowboys are coming. Come on, people, get a grip, let us have our say. What we’ll put forth, here, is the American way. Guns toted openly, on a hip, hidden under arm, You know it’s only the bad folks they will harm. […]

You’re Not

The Swansong of William Theodore Peacock

~~~~~ Stop up my ears and cover my eyes. Redeem me from the nightly news, From their blatant, calculated lies. To the men behind the curtain, pay, Pay no attention, So-called leaders, smoke and mirrors, Sleight of hand, misdirection and distraction. Shall I evoke the message, style From an earlier era? A man, a poet, […]
