March Pi-Archimedes Plus #26

Today I am using an extended version of the pi sequence…3.14159265359 because, frankly, I felt like ranting. And because a John 3:16 billboard smacked me between the eyes (not literally) on my way in to work and I’m just tired of self-righteous religious people trying to convert everyone while doing victory dances around their golden “cow”, justifying the lies and hate that have bolstered their “heaven on earth” masterplan to-do list…I’m ranting again. Sorry…here’s the poem…

no thanks…really

i don’t need
saving
by your god of
hate
who uses children as collateral
who raises up monsters, who steals from the poor
i don’t
need a god who would side
with prideful, power hungry idolators
thanks, but no
thanks, i think i’ll be
fine, minding my own business, trying to be kind

pay no mind

it’s not the
bellowing
of vain bloviators that
we
should be paying attention to
in the din is truth they’re trying to hide

The Pi-Archimedes verse is:
○ a hexastich, a poem in 6 lines.
○ measured by the number of words in each line 3-1-4-1-5-9 to match the numerical sequence of the first six digits of Pi.
○ unrhymed.
Pi=3.14159…

what now?

can we know
truth
midst a sea of
lies
there is no great hero
to save those intoxicated by power and gas light

Have you heard?

    The Mueller investigation is over with no additional indictments proposed…but were reminded that there are over a dozen investigations focused on Trump and his cohorts continuing in its wake…
    Brexit got an extension…for better or worse…TBC…
    Trump is becoming unhinged as evidenced by a flurry of incoherent tweets and rambling rally diatribes…becoming?
    The FAA finally grounded Boeing’s flawed max planes…finally
    The world grieves with the Christchurch community, the latest victims of extreme hate…
    Casualties mount in the wake of a deadly cyclone in Africa…
    The doomsday clock is hovering at 2 minutes to midnight…

The world is in chaos. So, what else is new? Ultimately how we react to adversity determines how we will fare going forward. And it reveals our character or lack thereof. So hang in there. As the good witch Glinda told Dorothy, “You had the power all along, my dear.” Congress, I hope you’re listening.

bright dawn

it is so
good
to see blue skies
sunshine
to hear the birds singing
save clouds, the tempest’s fury, for a rainy day
