like a two bit whore…

If only this wasn’t so true.
Job security more important than doing the job you were elected to do. The system shows no sign of changing.

willing to spread their legs
regardless of the price
those politicians who
choose to be expedient
disregarding their pledges

memorial day…

This the sad state of our country. Congress could care less for the thousands who gave their lives to be where they now are.

memorial day

there can be
no
doubt
that 
we
walk on graves
fallen souls
beneath
our feet
sons
of
many lands
all
who died
for
one nation
but
that nation
has forgotten
not only
their
names
and
places
of
birth
but
that
deep
bone marrow
of
belief
that held them up
in
battle
when death
was
so apparent
they
would not
surrender
nor
forsake
freedom’s cause
unlike
those who walk
in
marble halls
of
congress
with
marble
so thick
that
the bones
of
the dead
cannot be felt
nor
disrupt
a traitor’s
quest
for
power
would be
that
the dead
could arise
and
once again
defend
the
why
some
chose
to
die

beyond the city lights…

At times, especially lately, it is dangerous to times when things were normal. But for many, too many, life of the past does not differ from the present. I would like to say the future holds hope of change, But I think it does.

beyond the city lights

places
hidden places
places
without names
or
ways to return to
where
the smell of spring
lingers
in uncut grass
and
meadow flowers
where breathing
was
easy
and
footsteps
fell silent
on dirt roads
sounds
heard
small birds
and
a choir
in an old
country church
hymns
from voices
that
have long passed away
to
other places
also
hidden

discrete deaths…

How many thousands have been killed in the name of God.
D0 these acts make them holy, or just murders.

discrete deaths...

rarely found
on
page one
and
almost never
listing
the names
of
those murdered
instead
a monotone
vague portrayal
of
human lives
is
presented
as if
they were
some inert
objects
that were
merely
crushed
and
should be
of
no concern
to you
but
the assassins
carried out
their heinous
deeds
saying
hallowed be thy name
your name
for
you
are society’s
holy ones
whose lives
are
to be protected
at
all costs
from those
different
from
you
whether
it be
a child
or
a pregnant woman
combatant
or
noncombatant
nothing matters
but
thy
holy name

not that person anymore…

A reality check for us all.

Read Between the Minds

not that person anymore

wide-eyed optimist
carrying bible
from
one high school class
to
the next
reading the text
in
study hall
even
believing
that freedom
was
obtainable
along
with
unobstructed success
if one
only puts forth
honest hard efforts
but now
i’m
a self-defined survivor
all grown up
with
a greater sense
of
my own history
and
its stages
of
delusion
and
foolish trust
so now
i’m
drained
of
milk and honey
and
filled
with
the liquid steel
of
reality
and
truth
what about you

euthanasia…

Many voices tell the same thought.
But no one who could make a difference listens.

euthanasia

once
a beloved family member
charged with nurturing
and
sharing life’s wealth
and tho
it was given
there would be
no
massive lifespan
this
sad reality
has been forced
by
the reoccurring
drain
of
resources
so it is
that
earth
has decided
to
put humans down
to
relieve
the pain
and
suffering
of
the world

republican voter suppression…

I thought the past would serve as a lesson. But it is a lesson unlearned and the stupidity of racism continues.

shadows of yesterday
lingering behind closed eyes
muted moments of life
held in fear‘s bondage
