Premium Member Stuck in a Christmas Globe

The Elf on the Shelf is 
White Christmas is now
a “dog whistle”
no longer is Christmas embraced
in the soft fluffy down of the thistle
the greetings are muffled
no eye contact made
for everyone’s frightened
but no-one’s afraid
to challenge a word
a phrase or a sweater

There's three greenbacks in my pocket
Most I have had was ten

The green is pretty thin

Then ride to town and have a...Read More

The same language the same culture (consumerism)
A haze foul of jollity and hollow laughter.
Lost minds save the elephant and waterholes

Premium Member Talking Racism
Why is racism
so difficult to own
and heal
for fragile western
and northern white people?

Why is patriarchalism
so difficult to own
and inclusively heal
for fragile ecofeminists
against narcissistic straight white males?

Why is nonbinary heterodoxuality
so difficult to orthodoxically own
and multiculturally heal
for fragile binary
straight monoculturalists
against LGBTQ unwhite
unpatriarchal rainbows

The thunderstorms comes and goes
Although reality stays the same

Although the endurance keeps on growing
Staring at the goal

Let the foundation be laid properly
What am I indulging
Let it be build on the scarcity

Our Culture
Written: by Miracle Man

A culture of dependency is what we now face,
This kind of thinking should be a disgrace.

We look to big brother for the tiniest need,
Usually being fostered by laziness and greed.

Socialists are adamant about wealth redistribution,
They introduce...Read More

American Thanksgiving (1621)

Passengers in England boarded the Mayflower
To cross the Atlantic for the New World.
To escape religious persecution
For worshipping God as they saw fit
With separation of Church and state, God and King.

They suffered hardship that first winter

A Tom Wright opinion
(Do the crime, do the time)

White collar crime,
such as “Varsity Blues.”
Perp’s haven’t spent a day,
in a poor man’s shoes.

Generally a judge admonishes,
with a slap on the wrist.
The Rich & Famous crimes,
will be nearly dismissed.

Cultural ownership,
disproportionately lavished upon kings,
the occasional ecopolitical queen,
white male Republican Senators,
elite corporate CEOs
overdriving inside monocultural management
feeding consumer acquisitive appetites

Leads to cultural entitlement

where I win appropriate proportions
at your loser disproportionate misfortune,

sometimes to multicultural creolization,

The majority of people 
On this beautiful planet,
All with their own lifestyles,
Culture, religion, 
History and tales!
When they see these,
Long white streaks,
In the sky,
They think 
Nothing of them
And call them 
Busy with their lives,
Busy in their actions!
Minds being taken over,
By one...Read More
