the room…

A GREAT PIECE!

Read Between the Minds

the room

we rent this space
occupying it briefly
but everything
in the room
is ours
from
the furnishings
to
random thoughts
even
the broken dreams
scattered
throughout
the years
are
ours
so it seems strange
that we cannot share
this
small space
with whom
we choose
those
who pretend
to be our landlords
keep insisting
that
their rules
must
be followed
rules
designed
for their pleasure
and
their pleasure
is
power over others
but
we
pay the rent

guarded actions…

The picture speaks of the sadness of today’s society.

Read Between the Minds

guarded actions

fears like thorns of pain
from yesterday’s fields pierce deep
into today’s flesh 
creating a tenderness
and haltering future steps

pro life law addendum…

Great piece. To be honest, personally, I don’t embrace abortion. But on a universal note, I do not believe that any person or government has the right to tell a woman what to do with their body.
People think this an easy decision, it is not. These women deserve support, not anger.

unrestrained scotus…

Our freedom, and important, are being denied.

Read Between the Minds

unrestrained scotus

bridle fitted tight
reins were pulled until blood flowed
the rights of women
by a republican court
have been harnessed with brute force

investment opportunity…

investment opportunity…

nobody throws
confetti
anymore
it’s just
blown
from machines
or
just
dropped
from
large bags
over
the recipient’s head
all
the emotions
captured
in the hand’s
swirling motions
are
removed
for
the sake
of
efficiency
that’s got me thinking
about
a possible
business venture
now
hear me out
think about all
the weddings
held
worldwide
and
the aging population
that
can’t throw rice anymore
due to arthritis
and
such
see
where i’m going
right
a rice blowing machine
with
a flower petal attachment
i know
you’re saying
visionary
but
i’m
thinking
it’s
the wine

societal priorities…

What a chilling observation!

Read Between the Minds

societial priorities

it went unnoticed
but
a sparrow
died
today
didn’t make the news
like
the deaths
of
some children
children worldwide
of
color 
isn’t it strange
how valueless
some
lives
are
made

government job postings…

I weep at what life is like today. The rich, not all, don’t give a shit about anyone else but themselves. And the system continually rewards them with less, or no taxes.

Read Between the Minds

money to be made
don’t be afraid it’s a game
we get elected
then the cash starts flowing in
from inside trading and such
like bribes i mean donations
voters don’t watch us
they just hear all our sound bites
they pay us to steal
that’s right real double dipping
it’s salary plus commissions
just for pretending to care
public service gigs
as elected officials
can make you some real money
dividends keep on coming
even when you leave office
so as i have said
forget an honest day’s work
join the elite few
who don’t work for a living
but get other’s hard earned cash
apply now at ceb

war games…

You speak the truth. Will it evet change?

Read Between the Minds

war games

rules of engagement
which no one really follows
civilized murder
has never been possible
nor desirable since it
would restrict corporate profits

tidal…

Great image.

Read Between the Minds

those words left unsaid
surface when the mind’s quiet
like low ebb reef plants
that cling to the rocky shore
vanishing with rising tides
endlessly reappearing

while a child prayed…

Read Between the Minds

while a child prayed...

in that brief moment
all of the dreams disappeared
life that whiff of smoke
was randomly blown away
the gods had nothing to say
