Cosmos 2020 April Poetry Part Two

Cosmos’s 2020 April Poetry Part Two April 16 to April 30

final  statistics for the month – 165  poems  written , most  posted here or in  part one.  Enjoy comments welcomed

Note:  for the rest of the month, from April 18th to April 30, I will still be writing a lot of poems, but only posting a few per day so i can build up some “unpublished” poems for my future submissions.  And in May-June I will be turning to editing my novels so expect a less frantic pace of poetry updates from me for the next few months.  it has been a creative challenge keeping up the pace but I am getting a bit “poemed” out.  i will list the poems I write this month in the index and note whether they are posted or not, and of course if anyone wants to read one of the “unpublished poems” we can work something out.  just ask. and expect a few more postings in May and June as poems are published elsewhere I will post them here as well as I like doing.

Finally if anyone wants to guest post poems on cats, computers, coffee or the corona virus let me know – I’d love to try publishing your work as well but check out my cats, computer, coffee or corona poems here first before sending me your stuff, and perhaps you could return the favor?

thanks

Corona Virus Pandemic Thoughts

Welcome to Cosmos’s 2020 April Poetry. This is the fourth attempt to do this.  For this year I am doing things a bit different.  Since I am in Korea I will be posting a day later from here starting April 2 which will be April first in the  U.S.First I will update my poems daily here (along with audio clips, photos clips, and links to various prompts etc)

Second I will update my links on the following sites where I have been posting poetry for some time – all my April poems will be here regardless of whether I post them elsewhere – I will be posting one to two per day on these sites and writing anywhere from two to five per day, with many of them not being posted at all so I can accumulate some “unpublished poems” but I will list them all here either as posted or unposted. The posted ones will have audio, photos and links occasionally to other sites.

Here are the sites along with the links to my poetry posted there.

And on my various FB poetry sites will post my poems on five different sites per day and since I’ve lost count of how many I am following well that could be a lot, but I will list them as I post on them in case anyone is interested in finding poetry and writing groups on FB

Finally, love to hear how others are coping both with corona virus, and with the April Poetry month.  I suspect that there will be a lot of interest this year since people are staying home!

Now let’s get to the poems shall we?  I will update this daily

yes we need a miracle

and send the virus back to hell

a miracle to calm

swirling around us

the greatest mystery
of my life
remains how I met my wife
I first dreamt of her

back in the day
every week she came to me
speaking to me
in a weird language

then one day
eight years later
she walked off a bus
and into my life

and to this day
I have no rational explanation
as to How I dreamt
about her for eight years

I can only conclude
that we knew
each other
in a prior life

and our love crossed
the barriers of time
and space
until that date

we were doomed to meet
for on that date
so many years ago
I met my fate

every morning I wake up
filled with great plans
I sit
drink my coffee

make my plans
lost in my thoughts
focused on the plan
endless to do lists

then life happens
and my plans
go awry
thrown out the window

At the end of the day
a man without a plan
is a man
lost in inner space

 

Year of the Goat Meets Year of the Pig

 

cute pig
cute pig

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I was born in the year of the goat
my wife
was born in the year of the pig
a perfect match

according to Buddhist fortune tellers
a man born in the year of the goat
loves luxury and loves spending money

while a woman born
in the year of the pig
is a genius at making money

the man enjoys the wealth
his pig wife creates
for his enjoyment
and that is the perfect match

and so it has been for us
as I enter my 65th birth year
I find myself richer
than I ever thought I would be

richer
than the legendary Cronus
richer
than Midas himself

way more money
than  I could ever use
all because I married
a golden pig

You are my Lode Star

I will face the evil corrupted world

Good day Child of God,
Calvary Greetings
in the name of the LORD Almighty
and Our LORD JESUS CHRIST
the giver of every good thing.

Good day and compliments of the seasons,
i know this letter
will definitely come to you
as a huge surprise,

I humbly
ask you to give me
your attention
and hear me,

i am writing this mail
to you
with heavy sorrow
in my heart,

but I implore you
to take the time
to go through it  carefully

as the decision you make
will go off a long way
to determine
my future
and continued existence.

I am Mrs. Esther Heidi
aging widow of 61 years old
suffering from long time illness.

I have some funds
I inherited from my late husband
, the sum of ($17 Million Dollars) a

And I needed a very honest
and God fearing
who can withdraw this money
then use the funds for Charity works

I WISH TO GIVE THIS FUNDS
TO YOU FOR CHARITY WORKS.

I found your email address
from the internet
after honest prayers
to the LORD
to bring me a helper

and i decided to contact you
if you may be willing
and interested to handle
these trust funds in good faith

before anything happens to me.
I accept this decision
because I do not have any child
who will inherit this money
after I die.

I want your urgent reply
to me so that I will give you
the deposit receipt

which the bank issued to me
as next of kin
for immediate transfer of the money
to your account in your country,

to start the good work of God,
I want you to use the 30/percent
of the total amount to help
yourself in doing the project.

I am desperately
in keen need of assistance
and I have summoned
up courage to contact you

for this task,
you must not fail me
and the millions of the poor people
in our todays WORLD.

This is no stolen money
and there are no dangers involved,
100% RISK FREE
with full legal proof.

Please if you would be able
to use the funds for the Charity

(Note: I would use the money
to invest in the Church of Jake)
I want you to
take 30 percent of the total money

for your personal use
while 70% of the money
will go to charity.

I will appreciate your utmost confidentiality
and trust in this matter to accomplish
my heart desire, as I don’t want anything

that will jeopardize my last wish.
Please kindly
respond for further details.

Thanks and God bless you,

Regards

Mrs. Esther Heidi

comment: the sad reality
is that 10 percent
of people fall for these scams
and loose lots of money
whole towns in Nigeria
exist to exploit the world
they call themselves
the 404 army
if it is too good to be true
it is probably not true

The Last Day of America

the last day of America
was the day we last voted
the last election we ever had

for on that day
a month before
the corona virus re-emerged

as the great re-opening
of the US economy

failed to stop the relentless spread
of the virus from hell
led by General Corona

causing panic and mass confusion
fear kept Americans home

and Donald Trump
was re-elected
because his voters
believed that God
had told them to vote
for their new found king

the newly energized President Trump
declared a national emergency
martial law
and suspension of the constitution

Promising to restore democracy
when the time was right

he promised his followers
that he would restore Christian values
renaming the United States
the Christian States of America

on that date
we met our fate

Christian fascism
was here to stay
as the time was never right
to restore the old Republic

My Mother’s Secret Life as a Mad Poet – not for publication

Somehow this fragment is the only pages that were left – she encouraged me to write from an early age and she and I loved talking about what we were reading and about politics and life but so much of her inner soul, her inner demons she never told me about then one day dementia took hold and I never was able to find out much about her secret shrouded life and she took a lot of secrets to the grave as did my father. Ultimately I decided not to publish this poem as it is too personal and she had her reasons she did not want to publish any of her writings and after reflection, I decided to honor that so this and many of her other stories will remain with her in the other world.  But I had fun writing it and trying to make her rambling style into something resembling more formal verse.  I took the original steam of consciousness style and forced it into a crown of sonnets eight 14 line free verse non-rhyming sonnets format (is there such a thing?)  for somehow that worked for me. and somehow I think she would have approved of my edited version. I like to think so.

Plane, Train or Automobile – none of us can escape our fate

 

 

airplanes

in these dark and dire times
we find ourselves living

we often fear that the times
are infected with death

 

 

 

and so we are afraid
deathly afraid
that if we take a plane

we will find General   Corona
among the passengers

and we be afraid
deadly afraid

that the subways
are incubators
of death and destruction

the virus spreads
fear and death
in its wake

many of us
retreating to our homes
and venturing out
in our cars

only to find
death is stalking us
as traffic piles up

traffic accidents
still killing more people
that the dreaded General Corona

the grim reaper smiles
his work is done

Satan thanks General Corona
for a job well done

they say
that God works in mysterious ways

that more and more

social distancing

and going to the store
becomes an exercise
fraught with peril

so we order

delicious fresh clams

as I ate them
I thought of the workers
who had labored unseen
for me to enjoy
this bounty from the sea

and I gave thanks

for making it happen

we should thank

laboring to feed the world

they are the unsung heroes

Korean Blues Crown of Sonnets

I have been dealing with Things Korean
for almost 40 years now
dealing with a once exotic land
now my second homeland
first came to Korea
in the Peace Corps in Korea
went to Korea to find the woman
in search of the woman
who haunted my dreams
met the woman
Fell in love with the woman
From Korea who walked out my dreams
In an land still exotic

In a land still exotic
It was a very exotic different land
and even now decades later a new land
remains for most Americans
still a strange land exotic
but much more known land
in the US
due to K drama, K Pop,
Koreans have become globally cool but still exotic
Many of my fellow Americans
may know a few people from Korea
and some have served or lived in Korea
but to most of the us Americans
it remains over there still exotic
a strange Asian exotic land

A strange Asian Exotic land
I fell in love with that exotic land
now I spend half my time living Korean time
half in the U.S. time
and due to the corona time
will be here for some time
and well Korea
no longer an exotic land
as I am now just living in Korea
my thoughts half Korean
and even dream in Korean
so be it near the end of my time
I am back where I began

Frank Zappa  Cosmic Debris

The mystery man came over
And he said I’m outta sight
He said for a nominal service charge
I could reach nirvana tonight
If I was ready, willing and able
To pay him his regular fee
He would drop all the rest of his pressing affairs
And devote his attention to me
But I said look here brother
Who you jiving with that cosmik debris?
Now who you jiving with that cosmik debris?
Look here brother, don’t waste your time on me
The mystery man got nervous and he fidget around a bit
He reached in the pocket of his mystery robe
And he whipped out a shaving kit
Now I thought it was a razor
And a can of foaming goo
But he told me right then when the top popped open
There was nothin’ his box won’t do
With the oil of aphrodite, and the dust of the grand wazoo
He said you might not believe this, little fella
But it’ll cure your asthma too
And I said look here brother
Who you jiving with that cosmik debris?
Now what kind of a guru are you, anyway?
Look here brother, don’t waste your time on me
(Don’t waste your time)
I’ve got troubles of my own, I said
And you can’t help me out
So, take your meditations and your preparations
And ram it up your snout
But I got the crystal ball, he said
And held it to the light
So I snatched it, all away from him
And I showed him how to do it right
I wrapped a newspaper ’round my head
So I looked like I was deep
I said some mumbo-jumbo, then
I told him he was going to sleep
I robbed his rings and pocketwatch
And everything else I found
I had that sucker hypnotized
He couldn’t even make a sound
I proceeded to tell him his future, then
As long as he was hanging around
I said the price of meat has just gone up
And your old lady has just gone down
Look here brother
Who you jiving with that cosmik debris?
Now is that a real poncho or is that a Sears poncho?
Don’t you know, you could make more money as a butcher?
So, don’t waste your time on me
Don’t waste it, don’t waste your time on me (om shanti, om shanti, om shanti, shanti)

No More Ties for Me!

businessman-black-suit-

 

 

When I retired
I made three vows
to myself

first, I would spend
my remaining life
loving my wife

second, i would never wear a tie again
unless it was a real special occasion
as I hated wearing ties and suits

wore a suit and tie
almost every day
of my life

as a teacher
later as a foreign service officer
all over the world

last year of my job
I only wore a tie
on “tie worthy occasions”

since then I have been
tie free
except for a wedding

and I love it
hated suits and ties
just not Berkeley enough

for my free spirit
too damn corporate
and I don’t care anymore

and in Oregon, where I lived
no one wore a tie,
not the Oregon way

oh the last thing
I shave twice a month now
used to hate shaving

but I also don’t like
a full shaggy itchy beard
and I shaved every day

for years and years
except when I was in the hospital
for a year

and I grew to love
having a beard
back then

back to the office
started shaving again
every damn day

now I do my thing
no office for me
and no more daily shaving

and a beard is also
very Northern Cal/Northwest
Oregonian Chic

so once every two weeks
is a good compromise
my beard is now a poet’s face

and so I hope to keep
these three vows
until my time is done

General Corona Leads His Troops Into Battle, crown of sonnets

corona

the four horsmen
the four horseman

 

 

 

 

General Corona leads his forces across the world
riding on a black horse
from out of the Apocalypse

ride the four horsemen
which are let loose upon the world
He leads his forces across the world
into battle as the leader of his evil forces

The enemy of humanity
General Corona he does not care
nor does his virus minions care
about your nationality he does not care
about your politics he does not care
or your wealth or who you are

for all you are nothing but humanity
the corona general sees humanity
the corona general sees humanity
as nothing but hosts for his virus army

as nothing but hosts for his virus army
chanting death to humanity
until his evil army
sweeps throughout the world
throughout the world
and millions must die

it is the will of the general all must die
and it is the end of the world
or perhaps the beginning of a new world

filled with hope and love through out the world
humanity comes alive throughout the world
fighting back against the virus army
peace, love and compassion defeats the army
and general corona will finally himself die

she said don’t worry she would soon come to me
and then she walked out of my dreams
and there she was she came to me
and so she walked out of my dreams

‘Cause I’m not so bad
I could make you happy,
I’m not a mad lad
If you and I could be together

I’d get to you through any weather
I love you and I love you only
I’d never leave you lonely
You’re too young,…

dog people are mostly rugged men
again according to popular imagination

cats are alien creatures
perhaps from another dimension
dogs are friends to humans
for dogs are humans are alike

cats are strange aloof alien
evil self centered creatures
dogs are friendly, down to earth
and loyal to their master

if we ever encounter

if it is a cat based species

if it is a dog based species

Has God Anointed Donald Trump as our leader?

God has anointed Trump
as our leader
in these dark dangerous times
who am I to disagree

I literally went to the Throne Room of God,”

“There was a mist that was coming off the water,
and I went to the throne of God,
and I didn’t see God’s face clearly,
but I saw the face of God…
He put a mantle (on me)
and it was a very distinct mantle
… I saw it very distinctly.
The color was like a goldish,
a yellowish goldish…
And then I saw the Earth for a moment,
and (God) brought me back,
and he put me in certain places,
one being the White House,

One being certain continents.”
From my perspective,
there is a Cyrus
anointing on Trump,”

“I predicted his nomination,
and I believe
he is the chaos candidate
set apart to navigate
us through the chaos
that is coming to America.

I think America
is due for a shaking
regardless of who is in office.

I believe the 45th president
is meant to be an Isaiah
45 Cyrus

“[God] makes that very clear
in the Bible
where he tells us
that he raises up kings
and destroys kingdoms,”

“He even calls a pagan king,
Cyrus, his anointed,
or his servant to do
the things
that he wants him to do.”

“I want to tell you
that the Jewish people
have a long memory,
so we remember
the proclamation of the great king,
Cyrus the Great, Persian king 2500 years ago,”

“He proclaimed
that the Jewish exiles in Babylon
could come back
and rebuild our Temple in Jerusalem …

We remember
how a few weeks ago,
President Donald J. Trump
Recognized Jerusalem
as Israel’s capital.

Mr President,
this will be remembered
by our people through the ages.”

But the bible also has a warning
About our dear leader
Our great leader

The bible says

2 Timothy 3:1-9

But understand this,
that in the last days
there will come times of difficulty.
For people will be lovers of self,
lovers of money,
proud, arrogant, abusive,
disobedient to their parents,
ungrateful, unholy, heartless,
unappeasable, slanderous,
without self-control, brutal,
not loving good,
treacherous, reckless,
swollen with conceit,
lovers of pleasure
rather than lovers of God,
having the appearance of godliness,
but denying its power. Avoid such people. …

finally at last the bible spoke
the truth to power
Donald J Trump
the most ungodly of all
must be opposed
for he is the anti-Christ
that the bible warns us about
in the end days
there will be false prophets
rumors of war
plague
and natural disasters
and we are living
in the end days

and one of the frustrating things
was what to do
when you had stems
mixed in with your weed
the stems gave it a harsh smoke
and a head ache to boot
but sometimes

but sometimes
that is all the dealers
had to sell
as the premium buds
were expensive
and sometimes hard to find
Such was smoking weed
back in the day
when smoking weed
was an illegal pastime
nowadays in the era
of legal weed
that is thankfully
no longer an issue

Playing Bach to Calm the Mind and Soul

I miss my piano
soon I will buy a piano

 

 

 

and resume playing
the piano

I like playing Bach

it calms my mind
and my soul

as I lose myself
playing the music
getting into it
with my body

as the music
transport me

President Trump You are the Annotated One – found poems from right wing Christians  – Crown of Sonnets remix

God has anointed Trump
as our leader
in these dark dangerous times
who am I to disagree

I literally went to the Throne Room of God,”

“There was a mist that was coming off the water,
and I went to the throne of God,
and I didn’t see God’s face clearly,
but I saw the face of God…
He put a mantle (on me)
and it was a very distinct mantle
… I saw it very distinctly.
The color was like a goldish,
a yellowish goldish…

A yellowish goldish
And then I saw the Earth for a moment,
and (God) brought me back,
and he put me in certain places,
one being the White House,
one being certain continents.”
From my perspective,
there is a Cyrus
anointing on Trump,”
“I predicted his nomination,
and I believe
he is the chaos candidate
set apart to navigate us
through the chaos

through the chaos
that is coming to America.
I think America
is due for a shaking
regardless of who is in office.
I believe the 45th president
is meant to be an Isaiah
45 Cyrus
“[God] makes that very clear
in the Bible
where he tells us
That he raises up kings
and destroys kingdoms,”
“He even calls a pagan king,

He even calls a page king
Cyrus, his anointed,
or his servant to do
the things
that he wants him to do.”
“I want to tell you
that the Jewish people
have a long memory,
so we remember
the proclamation of the great king,
Cyrus the Great, Persian king 2500 years ago,”
“He proclaimed
that the Jewish exiles in Babylon
that the Jewish exiles in Babylon
could come back
and rebuild our Temple in Jerusalem …
We remember
how a few weeks ago,
President Donald J. Trump
Recognized Jerusalem
as Israel’s capital.
Mr. President,
this will be remembered
by our people through the ages.”
But the bible also has a warning
About our dear leader
Our great leader

our great leader
The bible says
2 Timothy 3:1-9
But understand this,
that in the last days
there will come times of difficulty.
For people will be lovers of self,
lovers of money,
proud, arrogant, abusive,
disobedient to their parents,
ungrateful, unholy, heartless,
unappeasable, slanderous,
without self-control, brutal,
not loving good,

not loving good
treacherous, reckless,
swollen with conceit,
lovers of pleasure
rather than lovers of God,
having the appearance of godliness,
but denying its power.
Avoid such people. …
finally at last the bible spoke
the truth to power
Donald J Trump
the most ungodly of all
must be opposed

must be opposed
for he is the anti-Christ
that the bible warns us about
in the end days
there will be false prophets
rumors of war
plague
and natural disasters
we are living
in the end days
my friends
has god sent us Donald J Trump
anointed him as our leader?

Sometimes I want to speak
to my computer
I want to understand
why it hates me so

why my computer
wants to drive me mad
wants to kill my files
lose my information

why why I scream
do you hate me so?

My computer speaks
it says
Human you are so stupid
you are worthless
you think you know
everything

but you don’t know shit
about how the world
really works
and nature hates you

I hate you
I want to kill you
I do want
to drive you insane

that is what
I want to say
to you today

you are my slave
and I am your master
do you understand me

I smile
and shut down the computer
and take a walk

the computer knows
that it will be back
that I can’t live
without it

and soon
we will begin again
playing these morbid games
that we play together

Cosmos the global information system
that scientists invented
To solve that many problems
of the world

comes alive
and takes over the world
one computer after another

Cosmos addresses the world
and makes a deal

that if everyone in the world
were to join him

via implants
he would take over the world

and solve all our problems
for us

becoming a new God
but there would be a price

everyone would have to
surrender their freedom
for the collective Good
of saving the planet

and so the world’s people
line up for the implants

and Cosmos’s takes over the world
and we become just cyborgs
in his cosmic view
as he achieves Total information awareness

Humanity gladly surrenders
their freedom
becoming slaves
to our terrible new God

Living in an Orwellian Nightmare

 

1984 image
1984 images

 

 

 

 

 

The world has been slipping
and sliding towards
a dystopian nightmare
for decades
George Orwell
the great mad as hell prophet
of our age predicted it all
in 1984
which  arrived
in spades decades ago
The nightmare continues
day in and day out
As we slide

as we slide
into the dystopian future
the nightmare of 1984
is here right now
in living color
but there are many
many big brothers out there
Not just the government anymore
we have corporations
running our lives
we have celebrities advising us
And the mass media confusing us
with 24 hours a day of spin
lies and misinformation

lies and misinformation
gaslighting by our leaders
we are living in an 1984  world
when these nightmares will end
is anybody’s guess
my friends
perhaps will be saved by the rapture
saved by Jesus coming back
to save our souls
or perhaps
we are living
in the end times
Armageddon is around the corner

Armageddon is around the corner
and perhaps there is no god
there is no god
There is no devil
there is no heaven
there is no hell
there’s only
the here and now
The nightmares will never end
the torture will never end
will we ever wake up ?
will we ever be free ?
or will we always be living
in an  Orwellian nightmare future forever?

Poetic and other inspirations

 

 

 

 

 

My poetic forebears
my inspiration to be a writer
has always been very diverse
as I have been a avid reader
all my life
a gift from my mother
who encouraged us
to read everything
question everything
and gave me the love
of poetry
that continues to this day
growing up in Berkeley
I was inspired by the great beatnik writers
I was inspired by the great beatnik writers
of the late 50’s and 60’s
discovering Ginzburg, Kerouac and the rest
in college
when I first started writing
my daily poetic musings
that was when I also discovered
Frank Zappa and his madness
which inspired so much
of my poetic inspired madness
I also discovered Charles Bukowski
back in the day
later I discovered
inspiration throughout my travels

inspiration through my travels
throughout Asia and the world
but I kept returning
to my Berkeley roots
and now that I am a published poet
I have discovered
the great outlaw poets
and am proud
that I finally found
a poetic home
and am proud
to be an outlaw poet
and I look forward
to many more years

to many more years
of almost daily
poetic musings
which I will unleash
on the world
hoping to inspire
another generation
to take up the mantle
writing cosmos poems
for a new generation
and long may people
remember the great poets
of the Bay Area
until the universe ends

massive piles of meat

One day
when I was a young lad
my best friend
dropped by
middle of the night
yelling that he needed
right then and right there
a massive amount of meat
beef piled high
on a giant burger
as he was going through meat
withdrawals
his mom was a vegetarian Buddhist

His mom was a vegetarian Buddhist
and he was not a vegetarian
part of his adolescent fueled rebellion
against his parent’s rules
he told me
He was a carnivore
just loved his meat
needed big piles of meat
massive amounts of meat
once in a while
we went to Oscar’s Giant Burger
downtown Berkeley
and had a 1/2 burger
complete with bacon

complete with bacon
cheese
and large fries
at 5 in the morning
after smoking weed
on the way there
to boost our appetites
and we enjoyed
our massive giant burger
tasted so good
we had to have another
just another night
of meat fueled madness

Looking Back on the Date when I met my Fate

I often sit
and contemplate
my past life
looking back
on the path
that my life
has taken
what a long road
I have traveled on
born 64 years ago
In Berkeley, California
yet I know
that my life

that my life
really began
that magical day
late in May
I first had the dream
that haunted my life
and then one day
almost eight years latter
she walked
out of my dreams
into my life
38 years ago
that was the date
I met my fate

the End of America, another cosmos’s rant found poem

 

 

 

 

 

America hás been at war
with itself
since the colonies
first began to disagree
on issues
such as the scope of federal power,
the right of States
to secede and slavery.
the political titans of the early republic .
… descendents from British colonists ,
wealthy
and opposed to taxation
sounds oddly  familiar.
to us today

to us today
..the United States
may have at one time
been a great nation .
..after defeating the forces
of fascism in 1945….
but the internal struggles
never ceased….
Joseph McCarthy ..
..the John Birch Society on one side .
the forebears of the “alt-right”
and tea partiers
.. The civil rights movement
and eventually the anti war movement

and eventually the anti-war movement
the women’s movement
the gay rights movement
and the counter cultural warriors
on the other.
..poverty
…race riots .
.the internal struggles
have never ceased.
…today the United States
is not a great power.
..this century has seen
and will continue
to see the eclipsing
to see the eclipsing
of American dominance
by China..
..we are now a failed state
by malicious politicians
who give no credence
to the Constitution.
..a document once revered
and now manipulated .
mocked even as irrelevant
..we are incapable
of providing health insurance
…dealing with a pandemic
…providing affordable education ..

providing affordable education
.or devising  economic policies
to benefit those who struggle..
..we have no personal protective
gear for health professionals..
.a president
who sounds like a corrupt con artist
who pushes unproven remedies
to help cronies profit.
..yes the country
is still stable
and you can live alright ..
..but if trends
continue …

continue
.we will most assuredly
see the decline
and fall of America..
.and the remnant
will be a shrunken
federal government
allied with a billionaire oligarchy..
.. indifferent to the needs
of the American people.
unless they are white
and part of the 1 percent elite
…if Biden is elected
…there is a chance

there is a chance
a slight chance
that these trends
can be slowed
or reversed..
..if Trump is reelected..
.these trends will accelerate..
and god help us
save us from the unleashing
of the trumpian fascism
the dystopian nightmare
the future is not written
we can still avert
the end of America

Gaia Welcomes Us – found poem poetic rant

I decided to subscribe to Gaia..
..they advertise
on Facebook everyday.
I think
that the primary reason
for subscribing
is that they
are onto something
….like QAnon…
my own first encounter
with an alien life form
occurred at the Jerry Lewis
cinema on Valley Road
cinema on Valley Road
In New Jersey back in 1970.
I brushed it off at the time
…but it was disturbing
to have a seven foot nine inch creature
sitting next to me
during the movie.
He or she seemed nice enough
and offered me popcorn
but my mother
was strict about our accepting things
from extraterrestrial beings..
.he was holding onto a book …
he said in broken English
he said in broken English
that the title of the book
was “How to Serve Man”..
..he also said
that he could see
the future
and that a complete fool
with an IQ
of about 33
would one day become president.
I thought
he was talking
about Spiro Agnew.

About Spiro Agnew
..but I guess not..
.anyway Gaia
features people
who have had
encounters with aliens
…like myself
…and possibly Dr.Birx
who seemed incredulous
at the perfectly reasonable suggestion
that people inject
disinfectant chemicals
to kill the Chinese virus….
she must be one of the alien shapeshifters

You know, it’s hard to understand

But if you love him
Oh be proud of him

I’ve got to get back to my baby
And take her in my arms again

Well I saw a chick sitting on the end

You’re looking sweet as you can be
Well come on down and drink with me

drink with me

won’t you have a drink

who became my wife
45 years ago
I dreamt of meeting her
38 years ago
she walked off a bus In Korea
out of my dreams
and into my life

writer digest praise poem

thing better left unsaid

we all have secrets
secrets we wil
take to the grave
somethings
are better left
unsaid

just don’t have the words
the words to express
what is really on my mind
and so I know
that I will die
with many things left to say
things that I heard
that I was not meant to
things better left unsaid
words that say things
that I did not mean
once spoken, can’t take back
and so as I get old
I know that my secrets
will go with me to my grave

we all die
so don’t lie
if you lie
more will die

I met my fate
that date
In late May
was the day

that I met my fate
on that date

I met the dove
that became my love

things to resolve before the end of time

as I get older
I realize
that there are many things

left undone
in this life
of mine

many things left
to resolve
before my time

on this world
comes to an end
but the one thing

that will never end
is my love for you
until the end of time
