i heard this song before….

He keeps close to the current news, and the lies.

so let me get this
straight
saudi arabia
wants
the press
to accept
their
word
that
iran attacked them
with
drones
now
this
is
the same
saudi arabia
that
killed
a journalist
in their consulate
and
then
denied it
and
then
said
it was
rogue agents
and
then
they said
they’d
put them on trail
punishing
the guilty
and
then
and
then
and then
along

watch your step…

This poet always frames the truth in his poems.

Read Between the Minds

this path
isn’t paved
with
cobblestones
but
the skulls
of those
who walked
before you
laying down
their lives
so you
might have a chance
to travel
towards
freedom
even with
so many sacrifices
the path
narrows
and
is obscured
by
hate
and
ignorance

A SAD POEM

 

This poem is based on an incident I cannot forget.

Grandpa, while on a cruise ship held his granddaughter

on the edge of a window looking out on the ocean.

The eighteen-month old child struggled and grandpa

lost his grip. And the child plummeted.

I cannot imagine what the remainder of the cruise

Was like for this family,

Guilt, sorrow and the hate, all these emotions

generated on a relaxing vacation.

I cannot imagine the thoughts this child had

as she fell, sure there was safety waiting for her.

 

 

THE THOUGHTS OF A CHILD

 

The child’s thoughts

Falling,

Sure welcoming arms

Awaited her,

The child’s thoughts,

The mystery of this event,

Too young

To make this lonely journey,

Waiting for safety

As you fall

 

Into the sea,

Into the abyss

To which we all must journey.

man not nature…

Sometimes I think humanity needs to be gone. Look at how our
environment is crumbling. All in the name of money.

it’s not wildfires
but state-sponsored arson so
there’ll be no arrests

funeral arrangements…

My friend has a thought about death and our society.

Read Between the Minds

there will be no more graves
there are
far too many bodies
to
bury
and
burning
seems
unreasonable
with
our air quality
just as
shooting them
into
space
is not an option
hell
we already
have
more than enough
space junk
to
come
raining down
upon us
it
really
just leaves us
with
chemical baths
to
dissolve
the dear ones
there will of course
be
the legal battles
to
fight
with
environmentalists
who will claim
mankind
will be harmed
by
the residue
in
the water supply
and
then they will offer
the
absurd proposal
that
we
stop
war

a new staging…

My poet friend has come up with a great comparison.

Read Between the Minds

Jean-Michel Moreau [Public domain]

in this
interminably
drawn-out production
of
lust for power
and
human greed
the part
of
doctor pangloss
is played
by
the entire
us senate
the grand inquisitor
is played
by
moscow mitch
the part
of
mynheer vanderdendur
is
a shared role
by
members
of
the presidential cabinet
the part
of
the baron
is
played
by
the president himself
and
of course
the role
of
candide
is played
by
the american public

OBSERVATIONS & OPINIONS

TRUMP & HITLER

I just stumbled upon a Trump rally in New Hampshire.

Don’t know when. It’s the content and body language

that matters.

I listened to his rhetoric, as always glorifying himself.

But I notice something different.

When he stepped away from the podium to listen to

the crowd roar their approval, I could imagine Hitler

doing the same movements.

Watch the rally and tell me I am wrong.

Fellow Americans, I think we are in big trouble.
