Poems by Jake Cosmos Aller

Wearing a Mask is not a political statement

to my friends in America

and around the world

to those who think

that somehow the corona virus

only infects other people

that it is all a liberal hoax

overblown

nothing more than a bad flu

and nothing to do with me

demanding that we all go

back to work

what is wrong with you?

have you lost your humanity?

will millions have to die

so you can have a Big Mac?

 

so you can have a Big Mac

and a beer

whenever you damn please

and no one can tell you

please wear a mask

have you lost all reason

is it all now

about owning the dems

and the damn libtards

is there any thing left

in your cold greedy heart?

and you still proclaim

that you are Christian

as you violate all the Christian principles

what would Jesus do

 

what would Jesus do

what does the bible say

we should do

in the midst of this pandemic

is it the Christian thing to do

to let millions of people die

did not Christ talk about love

compassion and mercy

would not Jesus

wear a mask

to protect himself

and others

from this ravaging disease

that does not care

 

that does not care

who you are

who you voted for

which church you go to

and Jesus and God

are not there

watching all of us

as the virus spreads

it will affect you

sooner or later

and when it does

perhaps if you had worn

a mask

 

A mask

you might have prevented

a few more people

have died

a few more people

including your grandfather

grandmother

friend

relative might be alive

if you were not such

a self centered man

and I appeal to you man

to man up become a member

of the human race again

Wearing a Mask Saves Lives

To the owner of Liberty Bar and Grill

I understand that you are banning

wearing of masks inside your bar

because somehow wearing a mask

offends you and your Christian values

and makes a political statement

that the person wearing a mask

is a libtard or a Democrat

or anti-Trump

and those kinds are not welcomed

in your bar and grill

therefore you are putting your staff

your friends and your family at risk

of catching and spreading

the corona virus

 

the corona virus

You say that you don’t care

if people get the corona virus

it is nothing but a cold or flu

but the thing about it

the deadly thing about the virus

the virus does not care about you

or your political views

and if you or your friends catch it

some of them will get sick and die

and it would all be because of your actions

and wearing a mask is not

a political statement

wearing a mask does not show weakness

 

wearing a mask does not show weakness

and does not mean that the wearer

is a political enemy

I would respect you more

if you posted a sign

no liberals, democrats

non-whites, gays and anti-Trumpers

allowed but that would be illegal

so you take it out on mask wearers

you are so following the Christian faith

what would Jesus say to you

I wonder?

Just shut up already

Put on the damn mask no doubt

End of America

In 2020 we are seeing the end

of America

a virus spreads out

across the land

the economy craters

100 thousands of Americans

lie dead

then protests break out

over the brutal murder

of a named black man

in broad daylight

and protests break out

all over the land

America is divided

America is breaking down

America is breaking down,

dying in our streets

and politicians

are calling for a crackdown

is a fascist military take over coming soon

will all protests be deemed illegal

as the police state takes over

and America lies dying

and will the fascists

finally take over the land

and we become just another

failed former democracy?

will the world soon forget

that America died this summer

the summer of the end of America

October Falling Rain

The falling rain
Of late October
Fills me with essential dread

As I rush about
And end up here
Wherever here is

The rain outside
Seems like the tears of god

As I sit
Crying over my beer

Thinking of lost love
And failed dreams

Wondering
What went wrong?
And what I can set right

And the rain falls
And the night darkens

The rain is falling
All over this man’s world

And the rain falls
And I sit

Drinking my lonesome drink
Lost in dreams

Dreaming of what
Could never be

Thinking dark thoughts
And so I sit
And dream the night away

The Story of How We Met

BHS

It all began in Berkeley, California
In the spring time of 1974

One fateful afternoon
I was dozing
in my high school Physics class.

SONY DSC

I looked up
and saw a tall, beautiful Asian woman
standing looking at me.

She was the most beautiful women
in the universe to me

Park_Shin-hye

I screamed out, who are you?
She disappeared
like she was beamed away
from my dream.

I knew that someday
I would meet the girl
In the dream

Little did I know
I would have
to wait until 1982

Starting that month
I began having the same dream
Month and month and month.
Always the same.

She was saying something
in a strange language.

Then one day I had the dream
and knew that she was in Korea.

So, I chose to go Korea
In the Peace Corps,

Somehow knowing
That I would meet her there.

One day
A year after the Peace Corps ended

A month before I planned
to leave to return
to the U.S. for graduate school

That morning early in the morning
I had the last of these dreams.
This time I understood her.

She said, “Don’t worry.
We’ll meet soon.”

That evening
As I was getting off the bus
To go to my class

I saw getting off the bus

hitching a ride

The girl in my dream.
It was she!

I was speechless.
I did not know what to do.

Over the course of the evening
I ran into her several times.

Finally, I was introduced to her.
I muttered some lame excuse
About wanting to find a Korean tutor
and got her number.

The next day she came to the gate
Of my base where I was teaching
ESL to Koreans

She said that she had to speak with me.
I told to wait in the library
for about an hour,
and I would cancel class

and meet her then.
We went out for coffee.

She told me
that she was madly
in love with me

And simply had to have me.
I told her I felt the same way.

I proposed five days later,
And got married one month later.
Does she believe this story?

She claims she does not believe it
Because it is impossible to be true.

But I know that there are other worlds
and other times.

In a past life we must have been together somehow.
And our love was so strong

That it crossed over
the barrier of past lives.

She found me in 1974,
But it took until 1982
For us to actually meet.

And it has been 35 years
Since we met in the physical sphere
Or 43 years since the dream began

And I still recall the dream
And meeting her

I had no choice
When I met her

We were fated to be together
Until the end of this lifetime
And the next and the next

Monalisa

Sure. I’ll send this around tomorrow and post it on my blog. Thanks for making my day.
