No Chain, No Charm

In Unison-
~No Chain, No Charm~

United we own
Firm, full of finest goodies-
Our ground of freedom.


United we stand
Firm from failure and horror-
On the ground of strength.

United we pray
Faithfully with open mind-
Our bliss is assured.

Life in A Farmer's Day

.


                 Ploughs and pastures, furrows and frowns
                     Rows of seeds, for miles and miles
                  A crop, a harvest, to table, and smiles

"Where" they ask "is my vote gone?"
Answered by truncheon

In His name, holy, oppress
Gods weakest children

But we wont forget

Hundreds dead now
We only know one name, one face
A prayer for them say

What Species of Humanity Are You?

What species of humanity are you?
Whatever kind you are, you don't worry us. 
According to hearsay
you were willing to lay your hands
on small items
deposited by my mother
to the communal account,
close to a bank.
I know that since its existence
Istanbul has changed others.
Some who have gone there wearing worn down shoes
have returned in high heels.
You continue to brush its streets with your skirt.
Mirrors do not show what really happens. 
Ah, yes, you forget so quickly
the dusty streets of the sub-prefecture
of your childhood.
This ruse is your currency of the moment.
I know you.
You have swindled your brothers and sisters
with many recoveries.
My daughter, is there nobody to take you by the hair
and demand that you seek out America or Europe?
You have invented a lie to fill your pockets with money. 
What species of humanity are you?
Whatever kind you are, you don't worry us.

Warm in his beautiful coat.

Victoria Anderson-Throop
Nairobi, Kenya
November 26, 2012


Note: Political unrest near Nairobi, Kenya due to election strategies. Polish nun told me that she was warned by a local moonshine runner to hide. Too late. She was pistol whipped by local police who wanted more protection money. Didn’t get the money (it was a free clinic, so nurses had no money) Police beat the nurse/nuns and absconded with the very rare and precious AIDS meds to sell to the hospitals.Free AIDS clinic was forced to close.(Kenyan government does not have free health care for the poor)   Nuns are recovering then being transferred to other clinics. Three went back to Europe forced into early medical retirement due to permanent injuries sustained by police and/looters. The care program(education and/or placement) for the children whose parents were AIDS patients is gone. Children have taken to the streets in desperation.  Count your blessings.

Halloween Haiku
(9.7.10)

Suburban parade:
A night to transform yourself,
and beg without shame.

Wrappers and trinkets.

Mouth with one neglected tooth-
The jack-o-lantern.

Of two, your uncle doesn't like either

 
By his attitudes
your uncle resembles
a machine with laughs in brightness! 
With some difficulty
most people stop themselves
from laughing.
Besides, are they are in a state
to laugh -
poor people?
Their problems exceed their means,
high costs exclude...
their children are untenable.
Their waiting
lags behind
the century. 
Finding
nothing else in place
he grabs passers-by
by the nose...
a gag in one hand,
a carrot and an onion
in the other.
As a matter of fact...
what does he want,
your uncle?

Fractured fountations tremble,
Look up for repair.

I cannot believe that I used to have a crush on you,
You are cold, heartless, and MEAN!
I never talked about you, never did anything to you,
I never deserved that, you had no need to be so mean.
You stooped so low, never had I seen someone do that,
People told me you were like this, I just didn't believe them.
I didn't believe her when she said you were a womanizer,
Didn't believe you were a Cowboy Casanova, well you showed me,
And never will I do that again, you made me believe,
Believe her, snf you made me believe you liked me, you led me,
Led me on, and then you were like, "I don't like you."
Well guess what I didn't care then, and I sure don't care now,
Cause I loved my hubby all along,
Love him more than anyone and anything, I love him and only him!
I cannot believe I used to have a crush on someone like you,
I swear you are the spawn of Satan himself,
And I feel sorry for girls who date you or fall in love with you,
I do, because all you do is play them like a game.
I don't hate you, but I don't like you like that anymore.
You led me to believe you liked me, and then you said it was all a joke,
Yeah well you were a joke.
You were a pill, I was willing to take,
I am glad I didn't take you,
You are an unmistakeable , unidentified drug.
I am a good-bad girl, I can tell a bad boy,
But even I didn't see this, didn't see that you like this,
The boy with beautiful brown eyes,
Are now dull, no longer do they shine,
That brown hair, that I loved, is now just a memory,
The boy born on February 18th,
The one that I thought was perfect,
God what the hell was I thinking??
Don't ask if I'm alright,
I don't have the answer,
But if you ask me if I want to hurt you badly, I will say,
Say yes without hesitation.
You have no idea how bad I want to hurt you,
But then again I don't.
Half of me hates you,
The other half can't bear to see you,
The game you played on me,
It was cleaver, but it was also cruel and hurtful!
I want to hurt you like you hurt me, but I could never that mean.
I could be as mean as you,
The person who doesn't know how much what he does hurts people,
I bet you don't care either,
Because that's just the kind of person you are.
They tried to warn me, those two girls, M&H,
But I didn't listen to them.
I didn't listen to them, because I am not the kind of person,
The kind of person, to believe what other people say, without,
Without knowing about you, getting to know what you're like, 
Until you do that to me.
Until I learn on my own, that's the kinda person I am,
I take the time to figure people out, instead of judging them,
Judging them by how they look like, and what people say,
That's the kinda person I am, I am a strong Redneck Woman.
And I will never change who I am, change myself for anyone,
I will not change for anyone.
If you don't like me for myself, then you don't deserve my time, or my words, 
Or my anything.
This is officially the end of me and my poem, 
Goodbye.

					Always~N~Forever,

I pilled a lot of ketchup on it
and still dry it remained
I was very dissappointed

Landing into the toilet

My Books

You can call me whatever you want,
but it will not affect me in the least. When I
read books I picture myself as the main 
character, like I am really in the story, and
then my books are written in a different 
way many people do not understand. Many people
have told me that I cannot write good stories
or poems, and some people say they love my
writing; that they love my creativity, but do you
see I don't believe I write that good. If there were
no books in the world, I would go absolutly 
crazy! I love books with a cover and paper,
and not those kindle things. I will never own one of 
those things, I need my books, I need my libraies!
I LOVE YOU DUSTIN JAMES PALMER!!

Resolve For A Positive Option To Pass The Test Of Time

There are people who express their frustrations in extreme and fatal ways which take them out of the equation of "The Test of Time". These "Tests" are given to every last one of us at birth. There are millions of versions of these "Tests" due to the variables in their environments which they were brought up in. There are some inevitable variables though that wind up fatal regardless. I feel in these fatal situations, these people would have a blessing from the creator due to these unstoppable events. no matter Rich, Stable, or Poor, these "Tests" are here for everyone to go through. Fact: The elders of this world have "Resolved" many "Tests" or their lives would have been shortened before they would've reached 60,70,80,90, or even a whole century of lifespan on this planet! Imagine the many "Resolutions" they have to share with us through their "Tests" they had to take. Some of their "Tests" are very similar to ours of these current times, even though the trends are very different. No matter what, everybody gets slapped from time to time by life, you must suggest to yourself a positive"Resolve" and push forward. I have went through many "Tests" in the 36 years of my life and had to examine my options for a positive "Resolve" in these "Tests" and I expect many more in the future. So if you meet someone who says they rarely are "Tested" by life or they "Resolve" their obstacles swiftly, they're lying, because like I said they happen to everybody, some are sudden and there are some "Tests" that your only "Resolve" is to walk away from in a since and let it take it's course!

My Life

My life is so perfect and true 
With you my love,
Noone else treats me the way you do.

My step-father treats me wrong, and blames everything on me,
Which makes me explode or say some things to people that I don't mean,
My mother is awesome, and she is my best friend, the only other one I can trust, except you.

I have never really loved anyone before you, except my friends, but never as much as you, my love. 

I can't imagine living in a world where you don't exsist,
If I had to I would'nt do it, I would die,
I just can't be without you more than 24 hours, I am glad we are in the same school, that way when I am grounded I can still see you, 
I dream and daydream about you every day and every night, 
I want you to cloud up my mind, so I can think of nothing else.
My life is simple, perfect, and true.

There are some people that I wished I could say sorry to for my behavior towards them, but I don't think they would listen,
It eats my stomach up, and I feel bad for my behavior towards them, but I know I can't go into the past and erase it, guess I just have to live though it,
It just puts more scars in my heart, because no matter what we are all family in God's eyes.

I can not hate, Dislike, or even Strongly dislike anyone, even though they don't like me or may hate me, I think of them as family. So I will say sorry to someone I go to school with, she deserves it. I have 3 periods with her, so I will say sorry someday when I get the guts.

My life is so perfect, clear and safe to me

Once Upon A Time Life

Once upon a time,
when I used to call you mine,
I gave you my heart,
but you tore, and shattered it.
You damaged it,
I left it with you,
and you betrayed me,
I was a fool to think you would
be loyal and faithful.
Wow, I was dumb.
You were a coward,
You were a jerk,
In so many ways.
You left without me,
Spent so much time with her,
said she was just a friend,
Then a week later,
Found out you were cheating on me with her.
I was thinking I was dumb, but then I just said
I'm done, I am done with you,
I went to someone better,
better than you.
I used to be that once upon a time girl,
Wow, now I'm a free girl.

Change For A Dollar?

The only thing that exceeded the dinginess of this rat-hole bar was its stuffiness. I
stopped in the place to make change for a parking meter just outside its door. God! It was
awful in there, and I wondered, how in the hell the three inebriates sitting at the bar
were able to breathe. I made a futile attempt to hold my breath, but the bartender knew
his effort was a no-sell, took his grand old time getting to the cash register. I just
couldn’t hold my breath any longer.
There was a very old *hit-kicker song lamenting about a lost love while the barflies were
adding to the toxic atmosphere with their continual chain-smoking. Finally, the barkeep
reached where I was standing and slammed the four quarters down on the bar with a loud
bang, that it startled the sots into momentary soberness; but just as quickly, they
lowered their heads and continued staring at the legal poison sitting in front of them.
I said thanks and turned to leave, but not before I was compelled to show my displeasure
for his rudeness by asking him, “By the way, you wouldn’t know the average life expectancy
of your patrons, the ones who frequent this rat hole, would you?” Before he could reply, I
was out the door.

                                                    Not all jackasses
                                      Bray, nor do they have four legs;
                                            Some are just blockheads.

The Valley of the Culprits

In the valley of the culprits 
be patient. 
Remain planted on your legs 
to be struck 
by the newcomers and leaving them 
never look behind you, 
so that each one can see 
the hairstyle on the nape of your neck. 
In the valley of the culprits 
while insults fuse 
do not say anything, especially 
make like the nightingale which ate a blackberry 
while the human one depreciates. 
The bump at the end of your nose 
must not have an impact on your spirit. 
Know that your language burns if you eat while pricking 
and your backyard burns if you speak bitterly. 
Above all 
forget your mother, and your father. 
It is not necessary to worry about their fate 
or that they are weakened physically 
and drag themselves along. 
Do not say anything. 
Drop... 
Let your efforts break down. 
Let the mast be reversed... 
Carry on your way simpering. 
If you see a fallen friend 
above all have no feeling 
no pity 
and if you have envy, give him another kick. 
Do you know that nobody is thinking of you at this moment? 
If you come across a large turkey 
cut its throat without saying anything to anybody 
and eat it! 
Have no panic, remain still 
where you are well hidden! 
In any event 
You are in the valley of the culprits. 
You will be viewed badly if you work much. 
You will be driven out if you speak the truth. 
You will be crushed 
if you go the way of love. 
You will be beaten in various ways 
if you resist tyranny. 
You know 
that there are things not to be neglected. 
In any event 
you are in the valley of the culprits 
Be pitiless! 
You know that integration is spoken about uniquely, 
that at least your indentity card is like theirs. 
One demands it from you insistently. 
If in spite of all you do not like 
all that I have just said 
do what you want, act according to your desires 
as well as your accomplishments. 
One never knows 
Perhaps you will be accepted!

Compassion is lost
Understanding is the key
Love is the answer

Unlocking the pain
Making waves in the ocean

Swim hard up to the blue sky

Open mouths suck air
To calm the tired spirits
Exhaling their pain outward

Deeply remember
Listen to the suffering
Take it not on board

Compassion is lost
Understanding is the key
Love is the answer

Flowing to mesh with life's pool

Foes surface like crooks

Blue veins quiet streams
Where the heart is, you have been
Though obscure you're clean

Blue skies white nimbus
Red silent sun simmering

The Hunter Has Become a Guide for the Birds

The hunter has become a guide for the birds,
his two faces
against two wings.

He has chopped down trees
to make a post
with small dried branches
for the birds to roost.

He has broken off flowers
to decorate this small tree
to cheer the birds.

He has put small stones
and large grains of wheat
on plates
so that the birds can eat.

He has constructed
posts with pencils
and towers with posts
from the ruins of the towers
so that the birds can take cover.

He has appended signatures,
each one different,
on dry leaves
with his two faces,
no one noticing.

After some time,
chasing the birds one by one,
he blows like a wind,
saying that judges and prosecutors
are his friends.

The birds, like many others,
quickly understand
and when the time is ripe
they emigrate
exchanging one thing for another,
finding another country,
agreeable people, trees,
grains of wheat on plates
and flowers of all colors...

while living peacefully there,
the hunter is of two faces
against two wings.

- Beginning
We were delighted,
At becoming best of friends…
Care free in our youth.

I didn’t know it but,
we were like leaves on the wind…
I surely missed you.

In the dead of night,
The familiarity…
Is what I miss most.

It’s been a long time,
Since I’ve seen you ’round the block…
No need to explain.

Enlightenment---The Story Teller

a book about war
lays ignored upon the desk...
at the door, a guest

with far-away eyes,
an old man has cleared his throat...
anticipation

the soft, but wise voice
fills the huge room with black words...
dust motes glitter bright

afternoon shadows
emphasize a wrinkled brow...
sun silvers his hair

the word "halocaust"
fills dark corners of the room...
tears shine in young eyes


a story unfolds
and hours turn into years---
new enlightenment

Autumn Festival

At Wick's End

Candles in rock pool...
Water like the deepest sea...
A stirring began.

Two hearts turn to flesh.
Angelic auras ignite
Infatuation.

Silent, holding hands...
Yet full of words afterwards
Sent in love letters

With upside down stamps,
Scented poetry pages
Drip unfailing love.

Charismatic speech,
Uncommon romantic deeds 
And fantasies bloom.

Unconditional
Promises prematurely
Penned with shallow love

Melt souls like soft wax.
Formless objects of desire
At wick end's dead flames

Reveal the candles'
Mistaken identities-
"I thought I knew you's".

Reality lights
On the still, stagnant pool with
Ripples of "you said's".

Glowing nimbuses
Form the rolling thunderheads
And vapors of rain.

Soft shoulders turn cold.
Tongues set on fire with Hell's rage
Turn indifferent.

Two hearts become stone,
And the first visitation
Evokes hurt and hate.

Endangered peace talks
Precede a trail of tears to
Extinct promises

In boxed up letters
Rubber banded together
In a hidden place.

SILENCE

Silence is golden
unless this sad quietude
is coming from you.


[Wrote this for a GR friend, who sometimes disappears for long stretches, and I liked it enough to post here, cause it often applies to many people I know, who go quiet (or even disappear altogether) from the online ranks. I thought other poets and readers might empathize.]

darkness

Darkness dawns upon me 
With such dark I cannot see
It constricts  my lungs as I breathe
As I sit in the corner and chatter my teeth

Sending prayers of happiness to the one above
Hopefully he will answer with love
To save me from my fear
Oh ,please help me dear

Thoughts of nothing within 
As the night creeps to an end
All I can think about 
Wants me to scream out loud

With terror among us all
We will surely fall
Unless the one from above
Spreads us with his love

He made sacrifice for us to live
And murder, suffering and pain is all we give?
Come on people try to find your heart
You and I both know your smart

You may not be as sharp as a dart 
But you have the might of a lion’s heart
You cannot give in 
To the feelings within

Telling you to do this and that
Its just love we lack
Just reach to the stars above
And fly like a dove

Fly to the sky
Oh so very high
Find what you have been missing
Even if it’s the loved one your kissing

Darkness is powerful
And make us bleed and drool
But light can overpower 
When it’s the lord’s hour

Her Heart 9-7-05

                                                She knows her heart
                                                Has been broken
                                                Into tiny pieces of a man.
                                                Could she love again?
                                                Only she can answer that
                                                No man can’t force her to do
                                                What she thinks is best
                                                For her heart.
                                                She wants to feel the need of
                                                Love, romance, passion,
                                                And truth.
                                                But at what price
                                               Will she sacrifice her heart?
                                               Only she knows if she lets
                                               Another man
                                               Into her heart.

remember that time

Remember the past?
When it was hard to last?
When people died left and right?
And went down with nearly a fight?

The ones who stood tall
And picked each other back up when they fall
The ones who believe in freedom
The ones who  fought to keep them

They kept pushing forward
Even when people fell backwards
They heard screaming through the night
And  heard words of fight

When the sun nearly rose
They had to get back on their toes
Only to walk head on into death
Everyone had words of distress 

They would unfold their little blankets to sleep
“I hope I get home alive” they weep
As  ones who struggle to carry on
Its their knees they fall upon

Crying tears of happiness to hold their loved ones again
Only to have their thoughts taken away from them
As the fire of guns ring in their head
And killed that guys best friend named Fred

Sirens of emergency ring
Our troops in green
Forward march ahead
In remembrance of that guy Fred

Victory they sing
As jolly bells ring
Time to go home guys
Thanks for letting our flag fly

Twenty Haiku

Now she sits down, head
hung low as my soul,
picking at the grass

Her head’s on the desk
counting out the syllables
just like me

When the moment calls
ah, what use are syllables
let’s break the cycle

Five seven five five
five seven five seven five
five seven five five

Tick tock, going round
and round and round and round and
round and round and round

As eons crawl by
the moments repeat themselves
only for those who listen

Facsimile smiles
she told me this yesterday
and I know the secret

“Cut it out guys, it’s
serious as a heart attack”
that was good timing

A hole on the knee
a hole in her jeans
a hole in my soul, oh yeah

Counting out the words
what utter futility
what else in our lives?

Eight bars of light sit
on the ceiling, letting us
see what we are doing

Impeach Bush and Cheney
afterdowningstreet.org
says the orange bracelet

until they all come home, I
will wear this yellow bracelet
to show my solidarity

Hair stands on my hand,
blown by the breeze
of the air-conditioner

A silver cross is hung
from the fire alarm
blown as well on the breeze

Under the sun, we
play out our peaceful lives
never stopping to think

Dammit, go away
sit down, because you
are the freak

“Nice guys finish last”
stop talking to my lady
well, not really my lady

This feeling,
I must deal with it
Alone

Dangerous, dangerous lady!
Don’t you know you’re heading down
the road to heartbreak?

Your light spilling on my days,
I need your spirit.

Circumstances

Storms swirl around me
To beat and shake my body,
But with my eyes fixed,

Winds and clouds are hushed;
Waters become tense like earth
Under faith's command.

Over Time

Black 
and 
White.
Similar 
and
Indifferent.
Wanting 
the 
Light...
Going 
and 
sent.
Laughing
and 
Shining,
Smiling
and 
Shivering.
Growing
and 
Reaching,
Succeeding
and 
Failing.
Shaking 
and 
Bleeding.
Lying 
and
Learning,
Loving
and 
Dying.

                                     Glad to see me back.

Do for our people what does a superman:
Love Shania Twain and sing if you can!
