In Your Face
In Your Face

I will put it in your face, 
as long as it’s in mine.

Is slavery in your face?
They’ve all been set free.

Is child labor in your face?
They’re all in school.

Are the house wives, in your face?
They’re all dropping votes.

A little bit of spice and everything nice,
Let's make sure there is no vice
Every time I roll the dice
I am being pushed sidewise,
I always hear their cries,
"Let live by our size,
Don't have to tell you twice".
Even then I try to...Read More

Premium Member Cher is My Favorite Artist
Cher, why do I love you? Is it your dancing? Your acting?
Is it your singing? The Sonny and Cher Comedy Hour?
Thirty million viewers a week cannot be wrong.
Gypsy, Tramps and Thieves is one of my all-time favorite songs
But she has...Read More

my idealism
my idealism:

my idealism is like
bare feet in summer grass

and blossoms
that drift like stars

resisting water-hazards
of apathy.

my idealism
is like city lights

that speckle wet streets
with vibrant paint.

stuck in right-wing mud
my nights grow

sleeplessly long,
but with loving-kindness

moonlight seeps
through dancing clouds.

Escaping the influence of societal greed
Elevated insight
So clear
Bright surety

Releasing the grasp of kaleidoscopic obscurity
Accepting any false judgments

Microscopic impurities

They are just contemporary deceits
Don't let them become your present day defeats
Don't feel compelled to let your life be kept discreet

You have the power to disagree

Lady Liberty

Or maybe if our society were to decay

Premium Member Love Lesson Planning
First, imagine, if you can,
"Love" is not just a many splendored thing,
although it is that,
but behaviorists and existentialists behavioralize
the complex of emotions and consciousness
wearing that synergetic label
as active, sometimes spontaneous
an antonym for "competition."

Imagine you grew up
in a language
where "sacred"
and "spiritual"
are...Read More

Motion Sickness

My people love marching!
Attending rain dancing parades,

Little drummer boys and girls

Premium Member Conservative Love Liberators
Climate change,
like most,
if not all,
unwelcome change,
too often violent and deranged
and hopelessly redundant,
remains conservatively controversial
as to who started It.

Yet this issue of inheritance
fades into insignificance
when confronted by our tsunamic evidence
of who is secularly
and sacredly
responsible for healing this mortal wound,
to end It.

The March for Our Lives [2018 and Onward]

16 days of activism
Before we expect them to speak up.
Before we judge them.
Before we make fun of their sufferings.
Before we label them by names;
Let us take a good look at our mindsets.
When they keep silent we call them cowards,
They report the abuse, we...Read More

The vomit stench of fellatio 
reeks from the webcam
as the living dirt approaches.

goodbye natural law

for the personalism of the baphomet.
