Premium Member Naked RedMeat Emperors
RE: Continuing RedMeat Only,
much less any Green Leafy Salads

and probably economically unwise,
to disinvest his Cabinet,
much less his entire Constitutionally incorporated population,
from ecopolitical diversity.

What is politically healthy,
probably not an all RedMeat...

Operation ‘Focus’ sees Israeli jets streaking,
Attacking Arab Migs and air force bases,
Attaining dominance over Middle East skies:
While IDF ground divisions launch into position.

Way Down South
Poet: Ken Jordan
Poem: Way Down South           
Edited by: Sparkle Jordan
written: June/2014


Growing up
way 
down south 
in
Florida -

was like
a 
fiesta -

We would
go to
the
beach,

swim, run,
and 
play

in 
the white 
sand -

and
soon as 
we
get home,

It was 
time 
to raid 

the 
sugarcane 
farm -

Life
was sweet,

in
the
Sunshine
State -

Each day
was 
better than
the
day before...

Premium Member The Leadership Convention
When potable water nearly disappeared,
good faith communities
for healthy living 
water,
Earth,
people,
plants,
soil,

Fire-breathing resistance churches
and calmer rapture temples,
synagogues,
mosques,
green post-millennial sanctuaries,
Gaian ecofeminist fire-circles
gathered their members and neighboring allies,
republican nationalists,
green democrats,
ecosystemic libertarian zeroists,

To discuss and discern
which potential Presidential

Tulum
Poet: Ken Jordan
Poem: Tulum
Edited by: Sparkle Jordan
written: October/2013


Tulum, 
in the morning sun,
 is like a diamond 
shining brighter 
than
any diamond 
that 
your eye's
will ever see -

Only a few 
can say 
that 
they have seen 
this mythical
wonder...

the Mayan city, 
that stands 
on a rocky 
promontory 
overlooking 
the Caribbean 
sea -

When you're
here 
in this 
ancient city,

you feel
the spirit's 
of 
the 
Maya people,

Who 
discovered
this sacred
place...

the
sea route
that linked
Mexico
to 
Central...

Pointed Art
Michael R. Burch

The point of art is that
there is no point.
A grinning, quick-dissolving cat
from Cheshire
must have told you that.

The point of art is this—
the hiss
of Cupid’s bright bolt, should it miss,
is bliss
compared to Truth’s...

God will curse those who curse Israel 2
God will place a hook into the jaws of the
Rulers of the Russian people.  He will
Cause them to want to invade Israel.
Who they will consider unprotected.

absolutely nothing stops the pipeline.

 

it penetrates all ways of life

all borders, all villages & towns---

the pipeline kills everything in its path if it dare stand in the way

of its progress---
