the crescent moon shines bright tonight
soon comes tempest Gia, due east
her crystal gown is drenched in sleet
dapple of snowflakes, winter white
soon comes tempest Gia, due east
the crescent moon shines bright tonight

Let them have yard sales!

while talking heads weigh strategies
vile politicians bloviate
poor people clamor at the gates
devoured in calamity
vile politicians bloviate
while talking heads weigh strategies

Hundreds of thousands of hard-working government employees will go without there first paycheck tomorrow. Some of the suggestions being floated to people as ways to make ends meet include, offer to walk your neighbor’s dog, become a mystery shopper, offer to do odd jobs for your landlord (in lieu of rent) or, this one takes the cake (yes, pun intended), have a yard sale.

It’s all big news. Great for ratings. But behind the headlines real people are hurting. I’m not sure when all this is going to end. But it needs to end soon. And no, I don’t believe a wall will fix it. ☹️

there is no rustling of leaves
on this blustery winter’s day
naked tree limbs moan and sway
icy gusts swirl ‘neath the eaves
on this blustery winter’s day
there is no rustling of leaves

when leaders act like 5-year-olds
demanding what they want and when
there is no reasoning with them
they’ll huff and puff until you fold
demanding what they want and when
when leaders act like 5-year-olds

I hear there is going to be a national address this evening by our toddler in chief. He plans to lay out a string of gross exaggerations and lies to try to convince the majority of Americans to embrace his pet project, The Great Trump Southern Border Wall that Mexico will definitely pay for, but just in case they don’t, we’ll need tax payers hard earned cash to float it so trump can make his dwindling throng of supporters (most would assume who live life a few eggs short a dozen) happy and make good on his campaign mantra. Facts are not important of course. Only that trump gets what he wants. In the meantime, he is holding hundreds of thousands of government workers hostage. There are families…children in cages along our southern border living in horrible, sometimes deadly conditions. I’ll not be watching his speech tonight. It’s a total waste of my time. But I will be thinking about all the people who are suffering because of this horrible man’s actions. I’m sorry for them all. We need to do better.

Addiction

wounded hearts take time to heal
some try to kill the pain with pills
toss one back, chase it with a swill
then morning comes to keep it real
some try to kill the pain with pills
wounded hearts take time to heal
