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 ~~~~~ 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 […]

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. One more sad manifesto fostered by fear and, we have allowed this to happen here. Domestic terrorist murders adult or child, […]

You Cannot Know

You Cannot Know ~~~~~   It is time to put people over politics, country over capitulation and world over wealth. ~~~~~ Another mass shooting in the United States. Whether on the battle field or living our daily lives, we are at war. Will this be the day you will die or I will die because […]

All So Simple

  ~~~~~ Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength,  Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment ~~~~~ What’s a person to do? When every day there’s something new, war and violence, feeling blue.

Already Become?

~~~~~ Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength,  Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment ~~~~~ Rabid illness, rampant decrepitude, Narcissism, xenophobia lead us into paranoia and poverty, callous disregard. Pure greed, stolen chances in small steps, missive bites, bytes. Grabbing what? Anything they want, as though it is theirs by right or mystic rite. Cast your […]

Euphemism: The Cynical Silent Killer

~~~~~ Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength,  Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment ~~~~~ Boots on the ground come marching, marching Boots on the ground come marching one by one Boots on the ground have not one specified role At least that is the bill of goods we’ve been sold Boots on the ground come […]
