… to PAY ATTENTION

http://www.newsweek.com/va-secretary-shinseki-resigns-over-veterans-health-care-scandal-252812

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I'd HOPED, I CRY.

I’d HOPED, I CRY.

The above is a Forty-something Male that was working on another Presidential campaign for someone believed in. An en-treatment since George McGovern sought the office of the Presidency when the 18 year old was first allowed to VOTE. Betsy Blossom was the Columbus, Ohio Manager of my area. For me to remember her name without a squint tells you HOW INTENSE the WOMAN ‘WAS’.

Through the years the folk that Presided “for” us have done so by varying degrees of success… National and/or WORLD. I’m NOW MORE disappointed than with current’s predecessor. ALL HEALTH related incurments HAVE been glossed, guised  or GUTTED by ‘agencies’ that are either working “WITH” the business donor, to protect their stake, (that TOO MANY HERE ARE WEARING.), to provide yearly earnings to over-rich investors or, to place themselves and family into a better pay-IN. Add the factor of those SAME rich BUYING into a “Public” OFFICE FACILITATING the REMOVAL of INFRASTRUCTURE and, (all types OF!), RESPONSIBILITY. When “AN” individual CITIZEN brings these to the “RUNGS” of the Ladder leading to the “top” ‘most’ HAVE found that said “rungs” are “greased”, broken, or missing… without a posted sign of warning.

In THIS administration it “seems” that ‘all’ response is triggered by/for “a” “selfie”, no matter to those that have BEEN “in-line” AT the ‘counter’ with legitimate reasons of CORRECTION. The saddest part is that this group of legal tenured cannot fathom self-correction. Every time one of “US” plays the kid that walks up to the stage, during their “show”, and PULLS the CURTAIN to REVEAL the RUSE but, IS BEATEN by the performers without the ‘parent’ intervening IS HOW THIS WORLD has redacted “the AUDIENCE MEMBERS”.

Don’t YOU think it “funny” that the old adage of: “If you put HOPE in one hand and, “feces” in the other, NOTICE which one FILLS FIRST” HAS become a CLEARER IMAGE?

I’VE NOTICED.

AND, is the WHAT AND WHY this blog began… WITHHOPE”.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

of the flesh wounds gathered
we’ve found many tricks
to the quickly halting
of that which “made us sick”

we HAD found the origins
and addressed to you
by those ‘ployed to function
less than MUDDLED THROUGH

GONE what GOT “US” here
that of GOOD’S conventions
all we’d asked for was ACTION
and “SOMEONE” to PAY ATTENTION

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

TO: The WORLD… and, to those that asked the question of “AM I BLUE”.

NOT FROM what BLUE means to those the choose to LIVE!

I HOPE that someone sends this to President Obama. To FAIL those that PUT YOU ‘HERE’, then to further that by becoming what IS “KEEPING US HERE” is a crime against the claim of humanity.

Sincerely, D’Ellis

P.S., “You” CAN’T HURT ME ANY FURTHER.

Full CIRCLE*… to the *OBTUSE.

(https://ghaucher.wordpress.com/2008/04/)

… THEN

this for who dared Marry ME
a distant thought called LOVE
although there’s no longer “WE”
the OUTSIDE push and shove…

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Yes, I REMEMBER YOU
you were the ONE
that answered my dream
left your personal signatory
on the “wish” list
YOUR words were larger than Vermont
coming by way of a most gorgeous “flower’

We tipped, you up… me OVER
skin like a Tulip’s petals
hair as tawny as fresh mint penny
You told me you loved me… silently
the petals brailllicly impressing
my ‘moosh ‘speed reading
the celebration of “want”
unveiled us
your topography an awe
this “world” would take MORE than EIGHTY DAYS

“WE” stood in wrapped attention
your invitation by catches
of your breaths drawing me
finding ‘merged’ you collected “tears”
of your ‘welcome’
washed us
in love’s musks

We’ve held each other VERY tightly
even these days, Years, MILES apart
YES, I REMEMBER YOU
“WE” were as ONE …THEN

…”ARMAEGEDDON” IT

Since this IS the second iteration of my first attempt at blogging I have a need to bare some experimentation  here.

The situation of the CAUCUS REGIONS is bringing BACK the mindsets of a childhood. Those that can’t remember don’t have the recollections of playing in NUMEROUS friends’ FAMILY “FALLOUT” SHELTERS. Or, having ENTIRE mornings of School concentrating on “HOW TO ACT DURING A NUCLEAR ATTACK”. I’m thoroughly surprised that the ‘PACHYDERM PRIDE’ HASN’T re-instituted the  practice.

The following is “poetic” commentary on the “news” articles read daily. And, I’ve had too many OH(!)-PINIONS to just enter one per “jot”. The linkages proceed the ‘bit’ so that you’ll, (hopefully!), have an orienteer’s vantage of the staking ‘histories’ of “one’ that has seen the breadcrumbs when they were fresh.

(http://www.newyorker.com/online/blogs/newsdesk/2014/03/putins-nationalist-strategy.html?mbid=gnep&google_editors_picks=true)

go ahead and KILL THIS WORLD
a tattered ancient flag unfurled
diplomacy and charm so churled

a life of chest puff brief tuminescence
this isn’t “life” at its true essense
to build a greatness sans the crescent

those days of yore good read now boor
they had quick endings rose with no core
these latter generations seeking more

no “love thy neighbor” don’t get the gist
it’s “follow me” or feel the fist
if not you’re simply polit-grist

the gather of those similar
don’t like the ridings with a burr
a need rebreed of past infurred
as most grown thoughts a hope concurred
this take what’s wanted should demure

when left to own a bully cries
no victimization realized
to be their hate without diguise
is diffcult to bear

no matter how the resignation
there is no “PRO” of constipation
the glee as purest demonizations
your wants create dispair

this “HIS”-STORY what final ending
the choices made are the depending
it’s not too late to DO SOME MENDING
from that you’d be so rare

but have this thought of better futures
where citizens avoid the sutures
some stop to seeking “POLIT-LUCRE”
good’s hope done with a flair

a mater DID what the furor couldn’t
to Bear enmass when said shouldn’t
to satellites commerce why wouldn’t
seek “ANGELS” for the day

the boys club lost the ball while playing
to arguments t’was spread delaying
the escalations need belaying
the past left at the quay

new crops new fuels old BOYS their fading
to stop these fools no need debating
too far from shore there is no wading
let good be all’s display

repeat of pasts infuriating
again the west is ruminating
a better future tired of waiting
while sun shines make the hay

… with bluer skies

The those of ‘us’ that have been ran-SACKED by the CORPORATE ANTEBELLUM-ED mindset of “AT-WILL” are in the process of remaking the topographies of such. This ‘NATION’ is the remaining “hold-on”, of the “at-will” doctrine, of ALL the prominent “INDUSTRIALIZED”, ( that WOULD read “G-SEVEN-POINT-ONE!), and the President IS seeing to its END, (http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/SB10001424052702304071004579407992832670628?mg=reno64-wsj&url=http%3A%2F%2Fonline.wsj.com%2Farticle%2FSB10001424052702

304071004579407992832670628.html), through making pathways less “closed”.

But, what of those that HAVE / ARE suffering by the desperations of the past? I believe that a DILIGENCE of bringing recognition to the OVERLOOKED antics of EMPLOYERS that HAVE used the the vagueness of WHAT “AT-WILL” allows. The SUMMIT of such a thought’s success is what I’ve been constructing for FORTY-THREE YEARS… From non-graduation information to TAX data. I WILL have the “SAY”, and NOT ONLY HERE.

This site IS where I began the FREEDOM, ( AND, RESPONSIBILITIES.), of HAVING MY SAY began. I hope that this practice HAS achieved “A” maturation.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

this battle that you took today

just one more chink I’ve found

these many scars I can display

but proof your cheats so sound

and yes the audience can applaud

the deftness of your moves

their eyes say dapper though you grew as clod

each saved offense for proved

these many years crass labels worn

be humble ruled the thumb

your arch-type tracking to their scorn

you “pillars” way from plumb

you’ve dismissed our small improvements

to increase your wrongs demise

our rise-up through disprovements

fresher air with bluer skies*

++++++++++++*-

A blue sky law is a state law in the United States that regulates the offering and sale of securities to protect the public from fraud.

The fact that EVERY PARENT attempts to bring SECURITY to their offspring, health,hearth, honorariums IS the why that “WE, THE PEOPLE” have done what we have to get HERE. To continue to allow the “crooks” to prosper IS against any “FAITH” of the “righteousness” of living a GOOD LIFE.

… just by HIS SONGS

(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LsGtP9SeZ-c) since youtube is being bitchy…

[PETE SEEGERWAS  “there” when most of this nation was a wishing for “better”. The witness to too many pieces of the the ugly puzzle that IS the political “foundation” of what we ARE juggling today.

I have no vast wisdom of this Man that played a banjo but, didn’t yodel. HIS music has been the TONE of too many areas of the ‘life’ I’ve traveled through.

[Mr.SEEGER] didn’t say ANY MORE than was necessary… though HE SANG a LIBRARY of the WORLD’S EVENTS and PEOPLE.

++++++++++++
who WILL tell TRUTH’S witness
who today can ‘TELL’
who is cast for glories
who may claim the bell

how in simple rhythm
how by wisdom’s tune
how may liars tremble
how to chart HIGH NOONS

earthly salt his seasoning
calling halt of wrongs
clearing faults through reasonings
all just by HIS SONGS

… it’s just rough edges we should “take”

The “world” IS getting CRAZIER.
what miracle
can YOU today
the “news” you’ve read
the selfish sways
how DO you fend
from hurts and greeds
a life “well” lived
ALL SENSES… FEEDS
is there a child
that talks, plays rough
look down that line
hope prays NOT SNUFFED
can “we” be guides
that mark the “lights”
shorten tunnels
ENSURE ALL’S RIGHTS
to SEE past HUE
to FEEL past slights
to WORK for better
to RAISE ‘LOVE’S’ heights
what aged friends crave
for young friends goals
this old friend’s brave
to save many souls
geography has ups and downs
those placed upon could wear a crown
the differences are few but “great”
it’s just rough edges we should “take”

A ROLL CALL of ONE

a friend buried his first love today
I waited
until the family had left
had shed tears of finality
had hugged
had whispered
“there, she’s at PEACE”

I walked past
the last few cars
hoping that they’d not notice
the guy walking opposite
in an old silk
formal midnight blue
Italian made suit
her ‘JERSEY “MAMA”
would have nodded
respect

the latest victim of CANCER
I chose this moment
because my city “tan”
doesn’t “rub” well
with country “alabaster”
even though the next generation boom
better than I

the work crew has taken down the tent
clangs of pot metal aluminum
drawn to order
shoulder to shoulder
SHE WAS the FIRST WIFE
of a MARINE
both were compact
in that YOUTH
she didn’t get far
past it

the BONE-PEARL base
calligraphy brushed anodized
FUSHIA accents
this IS a BIKER’S beauty
a last ride of STYLE
HE always chose
definitively
and for KEEPS

I waited until
the concrete envelope
was distributed over
the origami metal parchment
holding the cartridge of a life
now run dry

Lowered in solemnness
placed into the dove-tail
cut from the MANTEL
this WOMAN has returned
to where her cells
call home

Rehab In the Open…

… Piques and Volleys.

It’s been time

for my own self-reckoning .

It’s been time

none too late, but

long overdue.

How much time

can an obsessive/ compulsive

waste on an addiction

of ‘fast’ powder smoked

with fast ‘women’ “stroked”?

A terrible coupling

where cramps arise

where they shouldn’t…

when they should.

A horrendous coupling

where clamps reside

when they shouldn’t,

but they would.

To stop the whine

of the six degrees of beckoning.

To stop the lies,

none too late, but

long overdue.
