Flies in the Vaseline

 Flies in the Vaseiine
               The Economy is in a Tank

You’ll see the look and you’ll see the lies
You’ll eat the lies and you will

I met a man the other day …

No Talent For Certainty

I met a man the other day
Who still believes in freedom;
Who thinks to live and worship, folks
Should do as they deem best

He had his own beliefs, I know,
But didn’t think it treason
That others disagree, and walk
Upon a different path

He didn’t fear that they’d corrupt
His children with their teaching;
This freedom thus extending to
His progeny as well

The oddest thing of all, was his
Respecting strange traditions

To shed insight to their pain

~~~~~•~~~~~~~~~~•~~~~~

They have taught me things I did not know

Things others would pretend to be aware of

Things like how the weather can affect Kitt

whose been diagnosed as Bipolar

I knew that rain could cause stiffness in joints

But now know seasons changing can make despair hover

Then there’s Robert

an artist and my new cyberbuddy who taught me about Dissociative Identity Disorder

He too shares and gives and pours

Out to others though life tries to intermittently dehydrate his…

What my father taught me

SUCCESS INSPIRERS' WORLD

My father taught me that there are two ways to go through life. You can tiptoe and get safely to your destination without anyone noticing you passed here or you stamp your feet hard on the ground making everybody know you are passing and you leave your footprints on the and of time.

“Make the choice and either reap the fruits or face the consequences,” he told me; and I have opted for stamping my feet hard on the ground; for he quoted John Mason who said, “If you never take risks, you’ll never accomplish anything.Everybody dies, but not everybody has lived.”

He went on to tell me: “Be bold! Be courageous!I do not encourage you to live a thoughtless or reckless life, for that would be a sure path to destruction; but I encourage you to live a bold, courageous, life, taking meaningful, calculated risks. Without this, you waste…
