Poetry Sucks


Life is precious because it is short.
There is no purpose or destiny beyond what you give of yourself.
Stop waiting to live or love life because of god.
You are better than this.

God is beyond the verification of science.
Faith protects the idea of god from proof.
Let us elevate hope to a truth,
In the end you and I are stardust.

Are we becoming sick,
From our own hate?
Not what to blame for our love of war.
Not what to believe; anymore.

Stop!!!
Hating ourselves,
For the faults of money grubbers...

We have the internet to soothe us,
We have voices in our heads.
When did boredom become a thing,
What is the sound of a freedom ring?

Stop!!!
Hating ourselves,
For the faults of money grubbers...

If you don't know one thing,
Then one thing seems like a lot.
We have the internet to soothe us,
We have voices in our heads.

Stop!!!
Hating ourselves,
For the faults of money grubbers...

Damn US


Depths

I have cold hands pressed firmly against a forehead of steel,
My iron strings are hollowed and freezing,
Electric are the nerves of my being.

You have a presence that bespoke of a realm of the real,
Archaic wisdom lost in space and time,
Electronics upon us in the age of crime.

Cold death awaits us,
The Iron child must die.
Glittering dust,
and smoke.

I have the worst of us within and without,
My love is frightening,
Lightning.

You are but a thought for which I doubt,
A love I had in my head at one time,
A love I wish I had now; sublime...

Coldness holds me,
Iron shackles bind me.
Flickering dreams,
and haze.

I have a burning soul,
My love would make a world quake,
For your sake?

Crime of the Century



Plague of Fools:

People are stupid; given proper motivation, almost anyone will believe almost anything.

Because people are stupid, they will believe a lie because they want to believe it's true, or because they are afraid it might be true.

People's heads are full of knowledge, facts, and beliefs, and most of it is false, yet they think it all true.

People are stupid; they can only rarely tell the difference between a lie and the truth, and yet they are confident they can, and so are all the easier to fool.

People as a group defy interpretation. They move in herds and make noises.

Noisy groups get heard (pun intended).

I love loving...



YOU!!!

Reality Bites


     There is a conscious trait among humans that make us what we should be and by extension do well by each other. This is a given trait among us. The truth is much starker than this. The goodness in our hearts is blackened by a society that permits sociopaths to control our world. How do they control our world without being found? We could have progressed to a higher level of thought and social/economic/political level without them but we didn't and now we wonder why?

     A sociopath is a chameleon even within the family and social structure. Love is a game. Trust is a manipulation. Harmony becomes that which the sociopath uses to adhere themselves to a similar population and extend their reach to true humanity. It is our innate goodness and willingness to do well and be loved that is used against us. A sociopath knows the words, but is unable to hum the tune.
 
     Human traits are complex. Our professions have been inundated with sociopaths to such a degree that we have scientists disclaiming “climate change”, doctors prescribing drugs that kill, and lawyers/judges defending racism. Our society has been truly embedded with that which will destroy us and we stand in awe of this because no amount of common sense or logic can produce its opposite.

     This is the WONDER of our age and this will be that which will either save the race or extinguish it...

Ebb Tide

When a country hates itself so much that it doesn't care what happens we are in a state of flux.


I am kind of partial for the former.

Our overlords may differ in their opinion.

Thesis


Much as failure is a feature of our imperialism and our world view narrows, short term success (financial) only makes our system survive a bit longer than it should. The overarching stimulus is money that truly means nothing. Failure (war) produces money, soulless fame and success (the stock market) that is supported endlessly in this failure. I dread the day when people recognize how duped they have been.

Failure is failed wars, destroyed cities and environmental catastrophe. Success is improved weapons, rebuilding impoverished cities for rich people and the continuous and relentless destruction of public lands for profit that are destroyed by man-made and natural disasters.

I love my cheap food. I love my country. I love my ignorance. I hate without reason. I hate different people. I hate taxes.

Profits, profits and more profits. This is the mantra that will doom us. Why don't our leaders come right out and say that their world depends upon us and explain why they need more. They hide behind flags and hatred. They hide behind a force without precedence, yet they are weak.

If there is one constant among a true citizen, and especially the military (their oath is binding), it is a belief that the Constitution is worth defending. Failure to uphold this simple creed is not negotiable. Leaders who do not heed this will understand that the people, and our soldiers, will realize your folly at some point and make you pay.

Power is a thing not trifled with. I look at the government (all three branches) and know how we came to this point.

Image result for Reaganomics

 Fixing this dysfunction will be the work of the generations that follow the GREATEST generation and the BOOMER generation (both of which failed to provide the simple creed that your children will be as well off or better than you). You both failed miserably because of greed, fear and ego.

The more things stay the same, the more difficult it will be to change. (2018)

Rainbow In The Dark
When there's lightning, you know it always brings me down
'Cause it's free and I see that it's me
Who's lost and never found
I cry out for magic, I feel it dancing in the light
It was cold, I lost my hold
To the shadows of the night
No sign of the morning coming
You've been left on your own
Like a rainbow in the dark
A rainbow in the dark
Do your demons, do they ever let you go?
When you've tried, do they hide, deep inside
Is it someone that you know
You're just a picture, your're an image caught in time
We're a lie, you and I
We're words without a rhyme
There's no sign of the morning coming
You've been left on your own
Like a rainbow in the dark
Just a rainbow in the dark, yeah
When I see lightning, you know it always brings me down
'Cause it's free and I see that it's me
Who's lost and never found
Feel the magic, I feel it floating in the air
But it's fear, and you'll hear
It calling you beware
Look out
There's no sight of the morning coming
There's no sight of the day
You've been left on your own
Like a rainbow
Like a rainbow in the dark, yeah
You're a rainbow in the dark
Just a rainbow in the dark
No sign of the morning
You're a rainbow in the dark...
