AND THE BEAT GOES ON…

 

When opinions reek of danger and

Outlooks collide,

When bias hisses,

When judgment derides,

When prejudice misses

The mark,

It is the absence of “Hark”,

The dark temptation to seekers of Truth.

“Alle heil der abend,”

As last light fails

And discourse galls

The light of Reason.

And feeds upon

The mindless nod of

A thousand, million heads.

“Shall we do this?”

(cries the headman)

Sure; whatever.

And then arrives

An alternate view

To an optimistic few.

And a rosier future

Prevails.

As autumn brings a withering reminder

Of thoughtless, irretrievable syllables

This new Ship sails

To sites and sounds unknown.

A few have grown

And risen above the moan

Of grieving masses.

Life as must, moves on.

ONLY TWO SIDES TO EVERY STORY? REALLY?

ONLY TWO SIDES TO EVERY STORY? REALLY?

Why only two opinions to every issue?

Why only two political parties?

Two genders?

Why only left and right?

Right and wrong?

Good and bad?

Green and ripe?

I prefer  red white and blue.

Words that rhyme with orange.

And  twenty kinds of potato chips.

Kissing the lips of the women I loved and

Every kind of candy imaginable.

Think about it.

Just

Think

About it.
