The Schemer.

The Schemer

There is a man who we can surmise,
by his words and actions,
he plots our nation’s demise.

His ego is such he cares not one whit,
if we rise to the top,
or stay mired in our own____.

NO! – a poem.

NO!

 

As the end wept upon the land,

we could hear the approaching fall.

Justice answered the trumpet’s call,

trusting the fight to her troop’s hand.

 

Fate trembles with haste to expand,

through misdeeds by her shameless foe.

Past foolish decisions now crow,

“Wait—no—this was not meant to be.”

They beg the nation, “Hear our plea.

Heal honor, shout, no…no… NO!”

Ew Gross or A Stalker Gawk Cur- a poem.

Ew, Gross

or

A Stalker Gawk Cur

A Taco Bell date got you cussed.

That former flame turned out her light

when your wallet became too tight.

Your love life has turned into dust,

and now Friday nights are a bust.

Your face is a lunatic smile

while stalking her twitter profile.

Dude, that brain of lust should be trussed.

 

 

Not good at all, but I needed to write. So, I did.

Now Democracy – a poem.

Now Democracy

Life is a spec of illusion

in this moment of history,

in this hour for empathy,

we are ripe with no delusion.

 

To  gain victory’s conclusion

into the storm’s eye, we must go,

against the rage-fueled inferno.

With spirit of a promised land,

and power of the strong right hand,

freedom fires in our hearts shall grow.

To Peace and Pride- a poem.

To Peace and Pride

Souls seek to make right the wrong,

by the resetting of the mind,

and the relearning to be kind…

the steps of healing… will be strong.

 

The path of progress will be long,

first highs then lows to overcome,

by strength, by faith we’ll succumb.

With the liberties of this land,

equally in each person’s hand…

peace and pride… will finally come.

Kindness through Cable.

This week’s Kindness is an article I read on the GoodNewsNetwork.org site. They share articles that are exactly what their title says. This one shows a Greenville, South Carolina cable technician showing up just in the nick of time to help a mother of two under the age of 4, one being Sailor who is blind and has two rare brain disorders. Click the link above to check out the full article and the mom’s words.holding a disabled son of a customer while he was there to fix the internet. Next week I’ll share the article I was too tired to finish I wanted to share this week, but was saved by this miracle of an article.
