Money
Written: by Miracle Man

Pompous people with money generally feel,
An entitlement attitude is no big deal.
Not having been required to work for a living,
They're so full of themselves that they're unforgiving.

Money's the root of all evil but gets things done,
But a...Read More

Much Money for the Few
Much Money for the Few

Much money for few;
Not much for many;
Tighter tighten screw,
Soon left without any.

Problems failing to face;
Never accept and ignore;
Depressive with disgrace;
Then our hair out we tore.

Often find the objective.
While having open mind;
Have been more selective;
Lower vine best...Read More

The “Lazies”
Written: by Miracle Man
2-19-2020

As bleeding heart liberals crusade for open borders,
Illegals bring their customs, and now reshape our country.
Some show moral probity, but many become hoarders,
And socialist's dare say, “it's all elementary”. 

The lazies knocking on my door seeking...Read More

What it Did
Four o’clock sure comes quickly
The early bird gets the worm
Meetings at 6:30
I’ve worked so hard for all I’ve earned
 
I was focused on the future
Trying to build my legacy
Rising to the top
I lost all sight of you and me
 
{Pre-chorus}

CASH
The gambler was hard-up for cash
Didn’t get it, but instead got a rash
He worked up an inch
His stomach started to twitch
Money hungry, the man felled and crash

Money is an issue at this late stage
Our dwindling funds
Make it no longer fun
Our accounts are surely in need of some aid

In "On Fire"
Naomi Klein reminds us
win/lose capitalism invites a collective action vacuum
and abhors restrictions on money-accumulating freedom,

But Earth,
a healthy global climate,
healthy ecosystems
invite regenerative win/win climax
of cooperatively nurturing health systems
and abhor inhumane definitions of "wealth"
as privately-held and autonomously sequestered currency
energy

When money becomes your god
A prayer is like seduction to your soul
Your church is the glamour the world bestowals
Your bible is the flashy neon lights and billboards
Your truth is the multiplicity of greedy
Your salvation is fruition of materialism
Your retribution is its finitude and lost...Read More

CREATION OF MENTAL ILLNESS
STARTS WITH WHAT WE SEE.
PROGRAMED LONG ENOUGH 
YOU'RE EXPECTED TO BELIEVE.

PROGRAMED TO HATE
RIGHT BEFORE YOUR EYES.
MAIN STREET MEDIA 
BLATANTLY TELLING LIES.
WILLINGLY AND DELIBERATE
CRIMINALLY ORGANIZED.
OUNCE YOU SEE AND UNDERSTAND
QUESTION YOURSELF WHY.

WHO REALLY STANDS TO BENEFIT
WITH YOUR ALTERED VIEWS.

There once was a man who would never be calmed
Dismayed by the future ahead
Then somebody saw that the man was embalmed
Delayed by the fact he was dead.

Oh what do you do when the future's involved

BRIDES have wedding rings so lovely,

in dresses traditional or new.
But I was married wearing a raincoat,
Love makes the vows,...Read More

There Is Freedom Within And Freedom Without
Though you may be poor,
There is no freedom without cash,
Worked hard for the dollar,
Until I hit the floor,
The poor has gift of time.
The rich in cash has no woe of money,
where there is no lack.
Not where the green dog can...Read More

A young woman, her form
still bearing a mirage of beauty.
In her detail she decays
closer still, a beauty returns
as a micro-delicacy.
Her charm dips in and out
like a swan through the bodies spoilage.
Da Vinci and his artist acolytes,
those red-handed anatomists,
all owe her...Read More

A submerged world of emeralds and pearls

French Food as Art

The French have a reputation for 
combining food with art – with more
emphasis on art than food, and causing many
to leave the dining table still hungry.

(The reason your pangs will not subside
is the tiny portions chefs provide.)
