Dear fellow 'masochisti-musicisti' and other Bronx cheerleaders,
It is never wise to demonise others for those are the same demons which come back to haunt you.
The price we pay for peace is the courage to walk away from things we don't need and from situations which no longer serve us.
Why is God always used by the state to justify war and division but never to justify charity and peace?
Is evoked as the author of war
Is it any wonder
Why there are less Christians than there
People pray for peace
While the government prays
To extend the lease
It is in pushing against our obstacles that our sparks are created. The sparks of light which see us through the dark patches and provide further inspiration.
There comes a time when a president must choose whether to be partisan or whether to be great. History glances over those who choose in times of crisis to hide behind a political veil, and boldly outlines with civic pride those who chose to lead from their core and not from their base.
A national disaster tax of 2% of income earned that all capable Americans would contribute to, would allow the possibility of a national fund for the purpose of meeting the challenges of national catastrophes. Businesses would also contribute 2% of profit for the purpose of updating prevention systems, improving the staffing and mobility of the better equipped emergencies services and money for the desperately affected. Should an earthquake decimate California, a twister tear through Texas or the emergence of another hurricane of Katrina's wrath, there would be a ready fund to assist those structures and individuals who could use reminding that we are and will remain one nation under God, indivisible.
This money could also be used as investment capital to increase its value and to be used as hedge insurance to help bolster our currency against other currencies.
A healthy ego is important otherwise the id gets weighed down with too much contemplative burden.
At this point in history it is conclusively shameful to have to point out that the record industry in America only seems comfortable promoting an African American male Artist if they've killed someone. Yet these same people, who would promote such images are the same people who vote for tougher laws to help protect them from the same types they are promoting. Huh?
Shooting someone will get you signed. Killing someone will get you promoted.
An argument never gets resolved until you let it go.
Each mesmerising thing
Is attended by spirits,
Half attached to what it observes
And still tethered by tide
To the masses
This is why the pull and sway
A woman's mind is made this way
Knee-socks give way
To make love
To all of the world
While it kills
What it caresses
I knew a man as old as the wood
But he could say No 'Ah' before the flood
Or at least this is what he claims
Before, he'd clear his throat and out leapt flames
Is butter proud to be hard
Relieved to be soft?
The latter means joy can be spread
The former just tears up the bread.
Hickory dickory dock
The mouse ran up the clock
You'd think she'd spotted some cheese
Instead she was out running her fleas.
I lay in bed in rumpled sheets
Dreaming what I'd boasted
Meanwhile the pig was chasing apples
While my ass was getting roasted.
Glow worm Glow worm
Advertise your centipede
Your friend is a foot stores dream
And you both have many mouths to feed.
When Venus De Milo had arms
She had no reason to shelter her charms
From those who were prone to hang on
And once her hands turned to stone
Begged the next sculptor to leave her alone
Rose quartz ringing joyful bells
And with a rush of giggles the heart swells
Sometimes rhymes are indulgent, lenient
Most times simply convenient
And with a great big fart , they all laughed
And she blushed redder than a bull's spear
Even the champagne bubbles turned flat
And tasted more like sulphur after that !
We are aiming to have Volume II, Chapter I available before the end of the year. Thank you for your fresh attentions !
ALL PRAISES BE TO YOUR SUPER HERO ARCHETYPES !
(And remember: No time spent doing what you love is ever time wasted)
