One man, one vote

A national joke

A muzzle masterstroke

The Utopian One World State
--Evil starts as germinated seeds,
noxious weeds of social infestation,
spreading and suffocating human diversity,
pushing all freedoms into extinction,
the loss of Liberty's creed,,
--Men-Women birth their offspring,
but raised by the State,
alienated offspring grow into bastards,
by design to this fate,
no-longer is Family an understanding,,

"Breaking the Lonely Rewind"

Hysteria ensues a small death
on a funeral pyre pushed
into a sealed and soiled
heart shaped box sunk
to swallow stone tears 
reversing reflections 
in the coldest mirrors
Tsunami waves flood
all that was green

On the breaking shores
there the Lonely Rewind
is...Read More

Incomplete metamorphosis of this stilled adolescent
Incomplete metamorphosis of this stilled adolescent...
petrified, sheltered, and mortally wounded prepubescent

I consider myself
analogously buttressed, cocooned,
garrisoned, hardened, insulated,
where cell baited jumping frog
o' Montgomery County ne'er
went leaving larvae stage,

now no divine providential
power can assuage,
yours truly metaphorically locked
within invisible iron bound cage

Nearly there
Shall I keep apologizing? 

For the silent screaming,
that has somehow, manifested into some..labeled, romanticized , interpreted version of labored anger...
You think it's anger? You think it's aggression?
Do you really see me, from thine own given two eyes?
Without that third component?

Premium Member Maybe It Was Eleanor
Ever wonder where big ideas come from?

Memories of FDR
from newsreel clips -
a lion-headed striking man
with rakish grin,
jaw jutting proudly, 
signature cigarette holder
clenched in his teeth
tilted ever upward...
soaring to the heavens
as he cruises by
waving to admirers
in his convertible coupe.

mending fences can keep your cattle from

Teddy P. Roosevelt in 1912 feeling sassy, hale and hearty,

America's had lots of heroes through the years
Helping the world overcome many fears

Premium Member Hidden Voting Travesty
There's a subversive plot afoot many do not note,
A hidden plan on national scale to manipulate the vote.
American leaders instituted a conspiracy to lie,
Millions lost their right to vote out of the public eye.

Come Stay
et répète les demi-vérités

glances fall out a painted window
eyes wonder but they never will

Kiss the moonbeams of a thousand angels
float along in sudden flight
tender dreams wrapped in silken starlight

The Curse
How long will this suffrage last?
Painting the dark picture of a darkened past.
My people are supposed to be blessed,
But we are cursed in this foreign land.
My people are supposed to be royalty,
Yet we are slaves.

When Nightfall Blocks the Sun
What will happen when the moon blocks the sun?
Will humanity come as one
Or will nature take it’s course?
Will we all stand as equals,
Or will one nation triumph under God?
What will happen after the hour strikes?
Maybe the world will witness and

Premium Member Special Suffrage
Since our most recent U.S. Presidential non-selection,
for one thing a Trumpian could not become
is therapeutically presidential,
I have become worried about our democratic suffrage.

Perhaps only mothers, or maybe also fathers,
of kids with special vulnerability needs
should be allowed to vote,
or perhaps each...Read More

Life explores integrity,
hoping to fulfill
all exploding polypathic 
curiosities polyphonic.

How might history rewrite humanity
if those who adventured out
and eagerly invaded
felt more reluctant to dominate?
More sure that their long-term survival
in this, or any, non-native land
required them to first learn those languages at...Read More

Confetti Dreams
Confetti dreams floating away
An innocence again is crushed
Under the weight of the fall 
Countdowns to unconsciousness
Filled in flutes of sorrow
As the masses mimic cheer

Confessions secretly stored
Under wraps of indesgression
Carried out the door
Self inflicted suffrage
Abandons another war

Anxious the path's unearthed 
Repentant...Read More

Stagnant World
Ever so peaceful you appear,
Disguising your eternal suffrage.
Silent is your noted fear;
For to humans, you take umbrage.

Yet you try to smile, 
As the crimson stains your body.
You chant “Peace!” in denial,
To your own folly.

Bear witness to carnage;
Bear witness to despair.
