Land of the free"" Home of the brave, but when a courageous young man such as one like Julian Assange comes along and is willing to "tell the truth," let the rest of the world know what nefarious governments, rich corporations, and powerful people have been saying and doing, what do the Americans do? Well, they scream bloody murder. They cry foul. They run for cover. They become mad as hell and look for someone to kill!

I was just a young man at the time. I should have known better, but as I said..... I was a young man! But in time I have grown to become an old man, and now I understand, and I am very sorry for what I did to that old man and his dog!

Poetically speaking that is....... during that of my later years it seems that defecation has had a way of cleansing my soul.
SHARE Thursday, May 6, 2010 Just Another Day
No big deal.... Just another day as Charley goes to work, meets the boys at Yansky's Bar, comes home from a hard days work, greets the family, has a meal, watches a little TV and a few more beers, then several hours of office fantasies tamed by a "fondled embrace" in bed, good night sweet heart sweet dreams.

It is essential that every man realize that deep down in the deepest depths of his being lies "this thing" that can, and most likely will, destoy his life unless he lives his life with humility, and understands that it is only by the grace of God that we are allowed to make our way through life.

Into the night I ran.... full steam ahead. Into the dark.... until I was dead. I cared for nothing.... greed had its day. Raw meat and razor wire..... Rottentide its way!
SHARE Wednesday, April 28, 2010 Prison Break
The United States of America, Land of the Free..... imprisoning more of its own people than any other nation in the world! Mostly Black people though, but I wonder why? Perhaps now that we don't need as much slave labor as we used to, we need "a place" to put Blacks more or less "wharehouse them" until we once again need them sometime later in the future!

A poetic description of those who should perhaps be held responsible for those "caught in the cross fire," individuals slaughtered in the many mass murders that take place in the United States of America.

A soldier's prayer that he might become at one with his enemy, that he might choose to become his enemy's friend rather than choosing to kill his enemy.
SHARE Sunday, April 25, 2010 An Unkind Word
No less than a missile shot through the body...... an unkind word can destroy not just the physicality of one's life, but the quality of one's life from the day one is wounded until the day one dies!
SHARE Friday, April 23, 2010 Young Men Silently Sitting
Young men discovering that that "real religion" (the truth) cannot be found by sitting in church listening to old men (or even young men) preach, but that a glimpse of "the truth" might be found in the "school of hard knocks" (like war, divorce, and/or getting fired, etc.) by allowing such incidents to teach us what it means to be decent human being, and thus to how to live a decent life.
SHARE Thursday, April 22, 2010 The Greatest Wound Of All
The greatest wound of all is that of allowing ourselves to be drug down to the level of being an animal that will kill in order to stay alive!

Like animals living in zoo-like cages, brainwashed (socialized/civilized) beyond imagination we live out our lives having "never lived" at all.
