ART: Is Life

It’s gone DOWN, to the proverbial wire and those that “we” sent to the shoreline of the Potomac to represent our thoughts and desires have lost their collective minds. The “Hurl Grey” group/ grope has seen fit to, tenaciously, hold TO their ‘beliefs’ not caring that when TEA remains submerged in water it eventually CANNOT KEEP its “USE BY” label at a USEABLE level. Especially when said water is ABOIL. And, WILL SINK everything that is attached that doesn’t have the adequate displacement abilities.
But, those that sought, then encouraged, the bailing of frustrations into the already “past-due-dated” regime of the “PACHYDERM PRIDE”, (GOP), has bundled America into an ensuing DISASTER. And, of course, I WILL NOT forget the “BURRO BRIGADE” for THEIR nefarious penchant for “exposing” themselves, (And US!), to that which should wait.
In all this the [\"FORKED\" ESTATE] has been twisting our “knowledge” for the [Brawnier] “PAC-ERS” of this nation.
Years ago there was a Television character that exemplifies what “OUR” elected have become…

Although THE [TALKING HEADS] did give us a very succinct analogy of what’s been, ( Going to ?), happening to the world as we’ve known it.
I give you their view as you read the words of
 Watch out you might get what you’re after.
Cool babes strange but not a stranger.
I’m an ordinary guy.
Burning down the house.

Hold tight wait till the party’s over.
Hold tight we’re in for nasty weather.
There has got to be a way.
Burning down the house.

Here’s your ticket pack your bag:time for jumpin’ overboard.
The transportation is here.
Close enough but not too far, maybe you know where you are.
Fightin’ fire with fire

All wet hey you might need a raincoat.
Shakedown dreams walking in broad daylight.
Three hun-dred six-ty five de-grees.
Burning down the house.

It was once upon a place sometimes i listen to myself.
Gonna come in first place.
People on their way to work baby what did you expect.
Gonna burst into flame.

My house is out of the ordinary.
That’s might don’t want to hurt nobody.
Some things sure can sweep me off my feet.
Burning down the house.

No visible means of support and you have not seen nothin’ yet.
Everything’s stuck together.
I don’t know what you expect staring into the TV set.
Fighting fire with fire.

It’s T(ea)-MINUS, and still counting. Something that the budget committees should have practiced more diligently. At least that’s what I’ve been taught.

We Who Partake Too Much

I want to be more
than what’s been
allowed me.
I wanted so much
but confused myself.
The jewels were real
but I kept misplacing them,
even though they were where
I’d left them.

It wasn’t so much that
life didn’t offer its
better things.
It was that I didn’t believe it.

When the “talent” was “recognized”.
When the “gifts” gained sprout.
When the fear first raised its head.
When I found the “block-it-outs”

As the timbre found expression,
As the soul grew so profound.
As the demons started gathering,
As the heels clipped by HELL’S HOUNDS.

I am tired of trekking this “glass house”
there’s no reason for false goals.
For the solids, liquids or gases
are what keeps us from growing old.

This is for Her that couldn’t get to gain that vintage… Rest In PEACE [Amy Jade].

Citizens Punished For The Pusuit of HAPPINESS

If you’ve never been to [TREEHUGGER.COM] you have missed one of the definitive news agencies pertaining to our environment.
To bring a bit of what is happening to communities, via their local governments, the example of how trite the elected are becoming is shown by the fact that the city if Oak Park, Michigan is spending TAXPAYER time and MONIES on prosecuting a family for improvising to stretch their food bill, provide BETTER NUTRITION and give their neighbors a different view of plant types in the community.
I only write this as one trying to help the family, TREEHUGGER, and the rest of US by the chance that you’ll be caught on guard and DO SOMETHING for this family and yourselves. Because it IS all about THE PEOPLE.
