Premium Member Childhood dreams part 1
When I was a child

My home
Hours upon hours
Night and day
I read and got lost in text
They supplied me with adventures
Secret journeys

Premium Member Let Us Speak Clearly
Let me speak clearly with you
dear religious and atheist Trumpians,

A fool in executive office

who described our catastrophic tolerance of disvalues for others,
situations we would never tolerate for ourselves,
disvalues like homelessness and hunger,

Ate noisily
