Cat Fight in Incheon

Watching two cats

Fighting alongside the sidewalk

In suburban Incheon New Airport Town

Completely indifferent

To the humans walking around them

 

And the humans were indifferent to the cats

As they stood there fighting

And screeching at each other

 

One orange one

One half black half white one

Both middle age in cat years

 

As I sat there watching the cats

really getting into it

I wondered what they were arguing about?

 

But since I don’t speak cat

I really didn’t know

 

All I know is they were really screeching at each other

And almost look like they were about to attack each other

 

But one cat backed down

As the other cat stood their proverbial ground

 

If they were humans one would have pulled out a knife

Or a gun

And someone would have been killed

 

But being mere cats

They stared at each other

And walked away

 

but they kept glancing at each other

So I knew the fight as not over

Merely postponed until a later hour

 

Cats truly are the aliens

Who live among us humans

Robotic Love

 

It seems in this toxic modern world

That love has become irrelevant

That love is merely a second hand emotion

 

That all there is

Is nothing but sex

 

Pure pornographic sex

And everything human

Has been reduced to a commodity

 

True love

Soul mate transformational love

No longer exists

 

And all of us

Have gradually lost our humanity

And we are becoming nothing

 

But interchangeable commodities

To be bought and sold

 

And our love

Such as it is

Is nothing but robotic masturbation

 

Thus is the state

Of love in the modern world

 

 

 

The Waves

The waves fall upon the Oregon coast

Wave after wave fall along the coast

 

Thousands of years have passed

Since mankind last saw the waves

On the coast

 

The waves don’t remember mankind

Nothing does

 

The world went on without mankind

And mankind faded into history

 

Just another lost ruling race

Like the ancient dinosaurs

 

And the waves continue

Their nightly dance

 

Indifferent to the fate of nations

That no longer exist

 

Such is the nature

Of the waves

Of fortune

 

 

 

 

 

Island Paradise

Living life large

In a tropical paradise

 

Nice weather

Great food

 

Fresh sea breezes

Caressing one’s skin

 

The stress of the modern world

Receding like a bad nightmare

 

As the sun’s tropical heat

Warms one’s soul

 

 

 

The Sun Rises on the Last Man on Earth

The sun rose high in the sky

On the last day of the world

The sunlight filled the sky

And the last man on earth

Woke up

 

And realized that today

Would be his last day on earth

 

He looked at the sun

And smiled

 

And warmed himself

As the sun rose

In the sky

 

And he walked out

Into the parched

dried burned out land

 

where nothing grew any more

where global climate changed

had destroyed the world

turning everything into a dessert

He started walking in search of water

And food

 

And walked miles

In the hot deserted world

 

Dreaming of the past world

And wondering if the sun would rise

The next day

 

As this would surely be his last day on earth

As he lay down to die

 

The sun smiled at him

And granted him

 

One more day

In the world

One more chance to live

 

And the sun set

And the night began

 

And the man slept

And woke up

 

The sun came up

And he was alive

But the world remained dead

And one more poem from day 25

In Search of America 1975 – Hitchhiking Tales

 

When I was young

And foolish

Broke and stubborn

 

I hitchhiked across the USA

Started in Salt Lake City

Where my greyhound bus pass

Was stolen

 

The station manager

Could have helped me

But refused to do so

 

Threaten to call the cops

When I grabbed my bags

Without the stolen tags

 

I said

Go ahead

But I am so out of here

 

Wondered about Salt Lake City

Went to a bar

 

Found I had to buy my booze

Next door

 

And they would mix it for me

Had to order food too

 

After a bloody Mary

And a burger

I walked about town

 

 

Saw the Mormon Temple

 

Finally about 3 pm

It was time to hit the road

Did not look back

 

Ended up in Cody Wyoming

Got  a room shower

Steak beer

Using my rapidly depleted cash

 

Spent 25 dollars

Money really went far

Back in those days

 

A band of professional

Communist agitators

Gave me a ride

 

To Des Moines

Lots of weed booze

And politics later

Got off the road

 

Slept outside

Next day

A beautiful woman

 

Drove me to near Chicago

In a red mustang

 

Might have been

The girl in the song

 

Took it easy

Digging her vibe

 

She invited home

But was not sure

If her estranged husband

Would welcome me

 

So I being foolish

And inexperienced with women

Did not go to her place

 

And always regretted

That I had lost

My chance that day

 

Then on to Chicago

Several rides later

 

Visited friends

 

Hit the road again

A series of uneventful rides

With truckers

 

And others

And a week later

I ended in New York City

 

Slept along the way

In cars

 

In truck stops

In high way rest stops

 

Always moving

Always going

None stop talking

 

And lots of free weed

And beer

And conversation

 

One more memorable ride

Occurred outside Albany

On my return to Chicago

 

A middle age creepy looking man

Picked me up

In a brand new Cadillac

 

He was he said a dynamite deliverer

For the Mafia

Went to various places

To blow up shit

 

He hated a lot of people

Particularly hippies from California

And Jewish people

 

Looking at me to confirm

That I was both

 

I told him that I lived in New York

And had never been to California

 

And although I might looked Jewish

As I what was called back in the day

A “Jewfro”

I was not Jewish

 

Many years later I discovered

That I am indeed part Jewish

But then I did not know

 

And I felt a bit of strategic information

Might keep me alive

Then I realized that he was just jiving with me

And we relaxed

 

And he pulled out some weed

And beer

And we mellowed out

 

But I believe that he really was with the mob

Perhaps not a dynamite dealer

A real made Italian made mafia member

 

By Chicago

I had enough

I called my Dad

Told him what had happened

 

Wanted a ticket home

And he sent me a ticket

And 500 dollars

 

And I went home

I told him I would tell him

My tales someday

But never did

 

I learned so much

About my fellow Americans

And the strange vibe

That was 1975

 

And now it is too late

But I wanted to finally

Tell the world

 

Of my hitchhiking tales

In search of America 1975

 

I’d love to hear of other hitchhiking stories.  Please send them to me and I’ll create a Hitchhiking Tales page on my blog and share it with every one.

Prior Poems of the Day

God Does Not Talk to Idiots March 20 2018

 

Poems about God

 

Here are some of my poems about God.  Comments welcomed.  And if I offend people, well you are entitled to your opinion and I am entitled to my opinion.

 

 

God Does Not Talk to Idiots

 

Every day

There is another outrageous statement

From this preacher or that preacher

 

Saying that God spoke to them

And told them that Trump

 

Was anointed by God himself

And would bring us all to the promised land

 

Well I hate to bring it up

But felt that I must

 

If God exists

And is all powerful

 

Why would he waste his time

Talking to these idiot preachers?

 

And why would he anoint Trump

The most ungodly of all politicians

 

How do these preachers know

It is God calling

 

Does God speak to them?

And what does God sound like?

 

How did God talk to them?

On the phone? By email? By tweet

Or by visions or voices in their head?

 

Or are they just raving lunatics

Who think that God is calling them?

 

God does not in my opinion

Talk to idiots

 

Nor should he tolerate these fools any more

 

God does not send us hurricanes or tornados

To punish us

 

That is beneath his pay grade

 

God is god and is mysterious

And if he speaks to us at all

 

We surely do not understand

Anything he says

 

As we have surely screwed up

The teachings of his prophets

 

So, I wish to end this by saying

Oh, you false prophets

 

STFU

 

God is not calling you

And never has

 

Just SFTU already

 

 

 

God in My Coffee

One dismal demented morning

As I contemplated the dawning day

 

Trying to wake up from the nightmares

That have been haunting my every night

 

I reached for my morning cup of hot coffee

And as I drank my morning poison

 

My snarling sarcastic cup of java

Frying my neurons with caffeine

 

I saw God

He had the look – tall white hair beard

And those piercing blue eyes

Starting at you with the thousand-year stare

Of the truly committed

 

Yes, it was God himself

In the bottom of my cup of coffee

And he was smiling at me

Beckoning me to join him

 

And so, I jumped into my cup

And went through the door

 

And found myself

In a giant hallway

Filled with Mr. Smith like

angels working on computers

 

Programing the day’s plans

I asked where I could find God

 

They told me that I had an appointment

And I went down the hallway

 

And found myself in another room

And found God sitting there

Waiting for me

 

He offered me coffee

And we drank coffee

 

And talked about this and that

I asked him what he wanted

 

He said nothing but my understanding

And Patience

 

And told me that I was lost

But would be found soon

 

And told me to go back home

And wait for his signal

 

For the revolution was coming

And I would lead God’s forces

 

And then I found myself

Back at home

And drank another cup of coffee

 

 

Four Poems About God

 

Meeting God at the Lake

 

In my 61 years around the sun

I encountered God four times

At least I thought it was God

But could never be sure

 

The first time I met God

I had taken magic mushrooms

And had gone to a lake

 

And soon was tripping inside my head

Lost in inner space

 

Zoning out tuning in

Dropping down the proverbial rabbit hole

 

And then in the middle of my madness

I felt oneness with the universe

My body melted away

 

And I joined the universe

All bonderies dropped away

 

And I knew that the universe

Was alive and I was part of the Cosmos

And the Cosmos was part of me

 

And I wondered at that moment

If I was face to face with God

 

I asked God to reveal himself to me

And nothing happened

 

Just laughter as the whole universe

Burst into laughter

 

And the madness began to fade

And I slowly came down from the high

 

And became aware of myself

And I was no longer one

With the universe

 

I felt profoundly moved by the experience

Felt that I had achieved perhaps nirvana

Or felt the presence of God

 

The feeling faded over time

And I resume my quest to find God

 

But knew that I would never again

Come so close to the divine essence

Of the very Universe

 

 

 

The Cosmic Cat from Berkeley

 

I next encountered the divine

Many years later in Berkeley, California

I had gone home to be with my Mother

 

While taking leave from my job

in the Foreign Service

 

I had two weeks there by myself

My wife came later

near the end of the trip

 

every morning I woke up

had coffee

Did yoga

 

Spoke to my mother

Who was sliding into dementia

Day by day losing her reason

 

Then I would go out

And explore the city

Go to a museum

Go to one neighborhood

And just be there

 

Rediscovering the Bay area

After years of being away

 

Having dinner with old friends

Seeing movies etc

 

Every morning a black cat came to visit

The cat was friendly and waited for me

And then would join me in my morning rambles

Following me to the bus stop

 

I stated talking to the black cat

He looked at me with the spark of divinity

 

In his dark eyes

I called him the cosmic cat

 

He seemed to like that

He would look at me

And I opened to me

Told the cat all my dark secrets

 

As I walked the streets

Of the old neighborhood

 

Every morning and every evening the cat

Would be there to greet me

And to carry out our endless conversation

 

Then I had to leave

And in our final conversation

I asked the cosmic cat

 

Say, Cat are you just a cat

Or are you a demonic cat

Are you possessed by God

Or by Satan

 

The cat looked at me

And I realized that God

Was indeed residing in the cat

 

But that god was residing everywhere

All I had to do was open my mind

And the rest would follow

 

So, I said Good bye to the cosmic cat

And he purred and came up to me

And I felt the comforting presence of the divine

As I said goodbye to the cosmic cat

And said goodbye to my mother

As this was the last time

That we would be able to really talk

 

I told my mother about the cosmic cat

She smiled and said that the cat

was there for me and her

 

to comfort us both in our hour of need

and that the cat was indeed

a cosmic cat

 

Talking with God in Bombay

Five years later

After I had last talked to God

In the form of the cosmic cat

 

Who hung out with in Berkeley

I found myself in Bombay, India

 

One day, I went to Church

And on the way home

 

I stopped on the side of the road

And prayed to God to provide me a sign

 

What should I do I asked God

And then I felt it again

 

God seemed to be everywhere

And nowhere

 

And I found myself down the rabbit hole again

And I had a vision of an old man

 

Sitting by the side of a bed

Looking at an old women

 

And realized that I was seeing the future

And the women in my vision was my wife

 

And then I knew the answer

that God was giving me

 

I had to find my way

Back to my wife

And rekindled the love that we shared

 

I looked up and saw my wife’s face

In the sky

 

I went home and wrote

A long poem for my wife

 

And called her up

And began talking to her

 

For the first time

In a long time

 

And I told her what was on mind

And told her that we had to decide

 

Would we continue as a couple

Or will continue to drift apart
Somehow I finished the conversation

And fell asleep with the peace and contentment

Of God’s presence filling my heart and soul

 

The feeling of being connected with God

Faded over the time

 

But the conviction that God had spoken to me

Never really left me

 

I asked God whether God was the God of Jesus

Or Allah or Brahmin

And I realized that God is God

 

And the universe is God and I am God

And that was the end of the story

And my last time I prayed to God

 

 

 

The Cosmic Dog from Goa

 

My final time with God

Happened a year latter

I was staying down in Goa

With my wife

 

Enjoying being with her

After our reconciliation

We stayed at the Taj Mahal Goa

Living like Kings and Queen

Just for a few days

High up on a hill

Overlooking the beach

 

Every morning I went down to the beach

And did yoga by the water

While contemplating life

 

And every morning

I saw the same dog

 

Not just a dog

But a cosmic dog

Filled with the divine spark of God

 

And the dog recognized me

And spoke to me and I knew

That God was present once more

In the face of the that cosmic dog

 

Kindred spirit

perhaps to the cosmic cat

that had save my soul

in Berkeley so long ago

 

I told the dog everything

And he just looked at me

With those soulful eyes of his

And I knew he knew that I knew

That he was possessed by God

 

God had sent him to me

To make sure that I was on the right path

 

That the reconciliation that God had promoted

Was on track that I was back with my wife

And that everything was the way it should be

 

Again I asked God whether he was Jesus or Allah

Or Brahmin or Ganesh or Buddha

 

God the cosmic dog just stared at me

I finally asked him directly

Say if you are God the God of Jesus

Bark once

The Dog looked at me and barked

 

I said well if you are Allah bark twice

The dog barked twice

Well are you buddha then bark three times if yes

The god dog barked three times

 

Hmm well are you Satan

The dog growled at me

And I knew I had gone too far

 

Finally, I was at peace

And for the next three days

 

The God Dog was my constant companion

And I knew God for the final time

In my life

 

 

 

Disgraced evangelist Jim Bakker warns critics they will face God’s wrath for making fun of him

Evangelist Jim Bakker — screen shot

DON’T MISS STORIES. FOLLOW RAW STORY!

In video captured by Right Wing Watch, disgraced evangelist Jim Bakker raged at his critics saying, they will face the wrath of God for mocking his End Time warnings and making fun of him throughout his checkered career.

Not mentioning his time in the wilderness, after he spent time in prison after bilking his followers out of $158 million, Bakker boasted that he has made many predictions — including 9/11 — that have come true, and that he is not being treated like the prophet he is.

“When God says something to you, you don’t always know the exact time it’s going to happen,” Bakker thundered. “[So] stop beating up the prophets because God says, ‘Woe unto you when you beat up on the prophets.’”

Bakker then threatened damnation on those who have ridiculed him over the years.

“If you don’t want to hear it, just shut me off,” Bakker said. “Especially you folks that monitor me every day to try to destroy me. Just go away. You don’t have to be there, you don’t have to hear it. But one day, you’re going to shake your fist in God’s face and you’re going to say, ‘God, why didn’t you warn me?’ And He’s going say, ‘You sat there and you made fun of Jim Bakker all those years. I warned you but you didn’t listen.’”

 

God Talks to Rev. Bakker

 

Rev.  Bakker says

 

When God says something to you,

you don’t always know the exact time it’s going to happen,”

Bakker thundered.

 

“[So] stop beating up the prophets because God says,

‘Woe unto you when you beat up on the prophets.’”

 

God just called me up this morning with a message

He said,

 

Jake. This is God speaking

I loved your poem,

“God Does Not Talk to Idiots.”

 

God, I don’t even know if you exist

How did you get my number

 

I am God you idiot and know everything

Or course, God Sir.

 

What’s up your royal highness?

Just God would do for now, Jake

Okay.

 

So Jake, I have a message for Rev. Bakker

And I want you to deliver it

 

You can email it in

As I am sure he will not like it at all

 

Why can’t you deliver it?

 

Because God roared

“I don’t talk to idiots.”

 

What’s the message?

 

Quit using my name in vain

Quit saying I call you

Quit saying I talk with you

 

I don’t know you from Adam

And I don’t like you

 

How dare you swindle 185 million dollars

From your followers

Using my good name

 

You sir are an asshole

And Satan has a room for you

Just confirmed it this morning

 

Oh my more thing, this article says

Bakker then threatened damnation

on those who have ridiculed him over the years.

“If you don’t want to hear it, just shut me off,” Bakker said.

 

God laughed and said to me

I will shut him up for good for sure

And my TV is set to delete his face

 

Every time I turn it on

Tell him that as well

 

“Especially you folks that monitor me every day to try to destroy me.

And tell him that I am one of those who monitor him every day

 

And I do want to destroy him

 

He is bad for the whole brand you know?

 

Bakker went on to say

 

Just go away.

You don’t have to be there, you don’t have to hear it.

But one day, you’re going to shake your fist in God’s face

and you’re going to say, ‘God, why didn’t you warn me?’

 

Tell him that is rich coming from such a con man

I have been warning people against these shysters

For centuries – it is in the bible after all

 

And He’s going say,

‘You sat there and you made fun of Jim Bakker all those years.

I warned you but you didn’t listen

 

Yes Rev. Bakker warned you repeatedly ad nauseum

Until I wanted to vomit

 

But thought it would be best

to just let him rot in prison.

Give him a taste of hell to come.”

 

“So Jake, will you accept this cosmic commission?”

 

Sure thing God.

 

And that ended my conversation with God

 

So Rev. Bakker, here’s the deal. God is angry at you

And your friends for misrepresenting the word of God

 

All these years and for ripping for the gullible

And living the high life getting rich off your believers

 

I’d repent of your sins I were you

and I’d follow God’s parting words

 

Finally just tell Rev. Bakker and his fellow false prophets

STFU before I smite you to Hell”

 

 

 

 

Buddha’s Prayer

 

The world is in a horrible place

The forces of darkness

Evil and hate have overwhelmed us all

Taking us down a dark and dangerous path

 

And I pray to all the Gods for deliverance

No one answers my prayers

As I watch the news

And the worlds spins further away

Into darkness and chaos

 

I then see the Buddha

Smiling at me

And as I contemplate the end

I realize that it all will work out

 

That is the Buddha nature of the world

Good always wins

And evil is just another illusion
