POEMS & FLEETING THOUGHTS

                                     IN THE END, WHO SHOULD PAY?

 

Here I go again, off topic. But I’ll get back, eventually. It’s just that our world is changing so quickly that I must take notice.

I feel we are no longer citizens of this great country, but pawns subject to the musings of those in power who are subject to the money of those with vast amounts of money.

Here goes a radical change in topic, if you keep up with what is happening, you may think I am presidential material?

These days the news is alive with stories of sexual harassment. Respected figures, and some less respected, are falling right and left. And of course, lawyers are licking their chops.

My question is: When the employers pays the fine for the employee, at times many millions of dollars, shouldn’t that money be considered income for the employee and taxed? This may seem petty but I think we should speak whenever we have thoughts concerning the changing values of this world we call home.

I have no knowledge of tax laws, just opinions.

What do you think of these musings?

HOPE

No matter how this county is fuc#ed up, there is still hope.

Americans still care for each other even if those who pull the strings of our lives don’t.

I FALL BACK

The poor protest,

The rich fill their coffers,

Our society is controlled

By the 1%,

Greed buys politics

And controls our future.

AFTER A LONG ABSENCE, I RETURN

Forgive me for not communicating for a month and more, but there has been much on my mind about the state of our country. I know this blog is intended to benefit writers, but life also effects our writing in one way or another. Many events, which I follow daily, are beyond belief. I shall leave the discussion of the current political climate to those more knowledgeable and eloquent to express the opinions which I feel.

One last comment. Do our elected representatives have their constituents in mind with their decisions, or are those decisions governed by their perceived power and a warped ego.

I will return this blog to its intended purpose; to aid writers in finding their way to publication. My next topic will be one with which I struggle: The challenges of the elderly writer and the rapid pace of modern technology.

One last comment. You may have noticed my reblogging work from other blogs. I follow many blogs posting information for writers. I hope to spread the knowledge.

PRESIDENTIAL QUESTIONS

President Trump,

Would you object to someone grabbing Melania’s pussy?

Have you thought of or grabbed Ivanka’s pussy?

I understand you think Ivanka is hot.

THE FUTURE

My daughter, Lynn, is marching on Saturday.

She is an great daughter and outstanding person.

Just recognized by the USDA as a woman farmer, she is making her mark in the world.

Let’s hope her generation gets involved to make this country and world a better place.

And takes notes for the future.

A HORROR LEGEND IS GONE

I should have posted this piece on Halloween night, but better late than never.  I feel this small piece of horror history needs to be shared.

As a writer of horror, I look to the roots of my addition.  The source which first opened the world of horror to me has just died at the age of 98.  At least they think he died.

He was one of the elements which first opened the world of horror to me.  He was Zacherly, the host of a late-night Saturday show centered on classic horror movies.  If you didn’t live in the Philadelphia, New Jersey, the New York area, you probably have never heard of him.

Born John Zacherle in 1918, he provided all the original classic horror movies.  Frankenstein, Dracula, The Mummy and the Invisible Man among others.  If the movie he was showing was not a classic, but a cheesy effort, he would interrupt the film to make comments or insert his image into the film.

During breaks he would camp it up standing in the coffin of his wife, stake pierced.  Also, he would talk to Gasport, a potato sack containing who knows what hanging on the wall.  Only Zacherly could understand what this sack said, which I found out from Zacherle’s obituary was his son.  Go figure.

Another activity, often perused by this ghoulish host, was brain surgery.  The brains looking very much like cauliflower.  I hesitate to speculate who these brains belonged to, but it is tempting.

I was a teenager when this was all happening.  Offered by Zacherly was a passport to Transylvania.  Of course I sent away for one.  With a bright red cover, it was a cherished possession.  It was lost before I had a chance to use it.

A legend is gone.  I hope he lives on in reruns, or that murky world where horror meets reality.
