I told a compassionate jurist once, the recipe for understanding the anxious at heart:

the most disturbing clamor, is that of positivities drum

it beats loudly outside their chamber

be grateful for lifeit proclaims

illuminating sub-text running a ticker tape parade

if you are not grateful you are a bad person

for we know, the anxious will always examine

the inverse and underside

mindful it’s not over yet

there is a life waiting, maybe not

as full as some would have it

for there are those who go alone

and those who need a hot air balloon

we are all capable of flight

even if long hidden are our smiles

time

that trespasser of calm

wills us on

IT WAS A NIGHTMARE THEN …. IT IS A NIGHTMARE NOW

We have to pretend this is normal?

Keith, bless his heart, is not going away.

“We do not have time for the White House edition of Celebrity Apprentice starring President-Elect Pussy Grabber.”

“Since no Democratic or liberal politician has yet stepped forward out of the morass of Politics Inc. to take on the responsibility of The Resistance, I, with complete awareness of the presumptuousness and arrogance of this statement, volunteer myself, and I will gladly turn over all these burdens to any more legitimate and informed lawmaker or political or cultural leader who has the guts to take these burdens.”

“The first step is to complete the de-legitimizing of his presidency and his election. De-legitimizing that he himself began.”
