She came out of the east affecting the worlds largest regime
Soon becoming a giant beast as things aren’t always as they seem
Reaching from one nation to another from town to small town

From China, Covid-19 its name, 

Travelled west, and here it came. 

Affecting many, making them ill. 

It’s one purpose, seeming to kill. 


Coughing, spreading, without knowing. 

Events cancelled, no movies showing. 

Calls for calm, as it takes its toll,...Read More

When I look through
My telescope I can see
The burning sun
As it lets out
Radioactive rays
That spreads throughout
The universe
Affecting our planet
It also sends out negative rays
That interferes with people
And the environment
It affects the weather
Sea levels and crops
Causing the unthinkable
To the atmosphere

Premium Member The Vanishing Smile
A smile makes all the difference
To a person's day
It costs nothing to smile
So they say
It is obvious it sticks out a mile
There are more people frowning
Than those wearing a friendly smile
What has wiped the smile from a persons face
Is it...Read More

That climate change
Is affecting the world
There are more hurricanes
And off season tornados

Frozen ice caps are melting
Does anybody care
That it’s causing the
Sea levels to rise out of control
Creating large amounts of flooding

It’s separating our government
Causing hasty decision making
Does anybody care
That it...Read More

Premium Member How Many Spirits
How many spirits could be saved,
if we could just let go,
 of the unimportant things.
we keep buried, but don't know,
how to release their hold.
Energy and time surely wasted,
on past injuries, because we're not bold.
Negativity is a force to be reckoned...Read More

The censer clanks
the smoke rises.
An attempt is made
to hypnotize.
It wafts across
the naive
The priest like
a magician has
a trick he uses
to deceive.
The incense odor,
causes a spiritual
Chanting in Latin,
locks his grip.
Affecting only  
those who are on 
 a guilt trip.
A stronger odor...Read More

An insane amount, it's becoming tragically clear

A Round Table
King Arthur had the right design
For when ideas abound
Discussion goes much smoother
At a table that is round.

When more than four sit down to talk
At tables long or square
The conversation’s aimed at who
Sits in the closest chair.

So little groups will splinter...Read More

Instead of Drugs, Music
Most of us are familiar with
The escapism from pain.

For an easy and cheap solution
Or because of advices of the
Doctors, psychologs;
Most of us get a cheap piece of matter
Triggering the oscillation of dopamine,
Making most of us addicted to them
