An Assassination Of Character

"Please let me die ...please let me die...please let me die..." Imprisoned by the eternal night demons, Goupil lay prone and paralyzed in bed. In the disturbing dawn of waking, during those few lifelong moments of panic sorting the nightmares from the day, the helpless heathen begged, borrow… Read full post »

Did you see "Coming to America"?  If so, do you feel angry and cheated to know it is a plagiarized film? Or do you not give a shit because that's none of your business? Shouldn't those opposed to intellectual theft have protested outside the theaters, decrying such awful behavior? … Read full post »

America, You Make Warrin' Fun!

Yes, he's pretending the stapler is a walkie-talkie

Ernie is a the world's worst con man. Afterwards he always says, "I's just joshin' ya, man!" Like he was joking all along. But really he views his con games like a lottery ticket: outrageous fortune requiring outrageous luck. You never know w/…

The Birds Before Battle

Why is it the sounds of nature are so much more noticeable just before battle? I find my mind singing along with the songs of chirping birds, carefree and joyful. All of Nature comes alive in this most gravest of moments! My eyes stray to gently bending flowers in… Read full post »

Trial Of Jack The Tripper

They say it pays to have good liar on your side. Still, I was wondering why the liar was smirking and inattentive all during my testimony. I was expressing the exact truth - no more, no less. Who the hell can argue with that? I reasoned.

The Assassins of Albert

The supervisor spoke in his thick European accent. "It's Albert's first day back everyone. Make him feel the good! He's good worker and we need him much!”

The exact details were kept confidential, but Albert had had some sort of mental breakdown. The word “suicide” had even… Read full post »

I awoke with the thunder of dawn
Donned my Cloak Of Denial in yawn

Grabbed comb to straighten ugly despair
For fire was raging all through my hair

I enter the street when a thug says to Pete:

"No one alive has died from their poverty!"
So I spit on

Me At 17? Go Ahead And Off Yourself

Gotta be a better way

You're right.  No one will ever love you.  The sick and the deceived might say they will but it's for reasons of their own, not because they know you. Life is as over as you think.  So as you sit in the closed garage with the car running, this time,… Read full post »

There's an evil in the Forest. Nameless and dark, no one speaks of it openly but rather in whispers with tentative looks over the shoulder. It's as if to admit it exists is to admit one's own doom. Yes, deep within the gloomy, towering trees beats a heart of death,… Read full post »

America Is Like A Jewish Garden In WWII

In ignorance we trust

"You just want me to feel bad."

That's what every junkie says when you take away their needle. But what does one say to the willfully ignorant? The truth. There's a book (and great film) called The Garden of the Finzi-Continis, about a Jewish family/…

Gainesville is about 60 miles north of the DFW area. I like to do day trips when I can and I felt cooped up after our historic snowfall here so I made a return trip to Gainesville only this time with a camera. You can enter from the highway directly… Read full post »

The China Syndrome, The Price Of Silence

"You ain't gonna get what you want. I'm not going to get what I want.
Nobody wins. Such is the price of Silence."

My grandfather said that just before he died. He was talking to God. I was just a kid from the city hiding in the barn just… Read full post »

May I Borrow Five Pound And Two?

May I borrow five pound and two?
I'll write a lovely poem for you!
May I motor in your car?
I'll sing your praises as a star!

I keep a blog on the internet,
It's sure to change the world I bet!
My words are the way to worldly riches!

The 21st Century as a Star Wars Movie

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away...

Sith Lords, long thought dead and vanquished, stage a devastating attack on the Alderon system, the crown jewel of the republic. Outrage enflamed the galaxy from one end to the other as the cry for war drowned out all

The one true leader for these times

The agent for change that must happen

A practical man who knows the real solutions

A dreamer of people's hopes!

Wind of a heartbeat
Bends no branch nor blows no leaf, 


Now, it's easy to come up with a final line of five syllables.  What's hard is finding one that's relevant to a heartbeat, personal and yet universal. I can't finish this.  Maybe I need to finish meRead full post »

Signs Of The Wind

Touching of two souls;
Tenderness lost in the wind;
Broken heart remains.

There once was a time when a grown man could squat down in the grocery store in front of a small child and say, "Hello, little girl!" and the mother would say, "What a nice man!"/…

You Say You DON'T Want A Revolution?

You say you'd hate a revolution
Well, you dope
Keep saying it's the only system!
Poverty is our evolution
Well, you dope
Human greed does all the fixin'!
But if you say love is perfection
Don't you know I'm gonna stomp and pout!

Death By Salvation

500 years ago the most dominant force on the planet was religion. Wars were raged and lives tortured over whose version of God was correct. (Of course, this still goes on today, just in a different form, in case you're tempted to feel morally superior). Kings were obliged to… Read full post »
