The Lady Street Walker "Walking the city's highways, byways and mean streets Clearly, never mistaken for a no-nonsense, uniformed cop on the beat Scantily clad, my tired, wracked mind and body, bared Tricks of the trade; all the better to ply, barter, sell my wares."

A Big World "Decks are stacked, the weighted dice turns, rolls, spins Dastardly deceit and greed triumph, the crappy rat-house always wins Rules are for losers; the wild, joker-trump-card, madly grins and mocks The powerless blocked, left in debilitating states of ruination, and perpetual shock."

The Force of Life The cresting and fading of giant, proud waves The lightning and lava of volcanic eruptions The midnight sun and green flickering northern lights.

The Coming New Year "Shakespeare's ugly, bearded, witchy-hags cackle, into their evil cauldron, 'Double, double, toil and trouble' Assuring, Macbeth a bloody, kingly throne; every tyrant's darkest, depraved, self-indulgent dream. Imaginably, humanity will awaken, ere long, and burst out of its somnolent, sinister, hostile bubble." .

The Fraternal Order of Cain "Inquired of, by the Divine Creator, for Abel, his unjustly, murdered brother. Cain, the killer, remorseless and scornful of repentance, is loath to bother. His mark, visible today, in hardened, hateful hearts; destined to never join the ranks of, phileo-lovers."

Thanksgiving, Crimes, and Democracy As a global citizen, my profound, heartfelt Thanksgiving is for the true US patriots, who voted against tyrannical, autocratic rule, and took a stand for democracy and the rule of law. .

Education Unanchored "Gates of higher education, shut tight, opening only to the chink,clank and ping of cold, hard coin. "Allowing the monied and creditworthy to pass through their ivory towers, others deemed just dross. "Student loans, an albatross, for which would-be scholars, must gird their loins. "To shoulder and carry through varied vistas and for many moons; like a weighted, cruel iron cross."

Thursday Thursday and Friday, an enduring marriage, made in heaven. Though, only days four and five, neither a perfect six nor a sacred seven. Weekend fun and games, on the horizon; some surprising. Cheers, jeers, thrills and spills; everyone buys in. I.Fowler

Guns and Roses "Bloody roses; oceans and aeons apart, yet forming one ghoulish, dripping-wet tapestry. Grim offerings to countless, human tragedies of truncated, stolen, brutalised earthly paradise." . "Guns reveal themselves as being central to white supremacy.......Until Americans fully understand and reconcile their past, they have little hope of addressing the epidemic of gun violence in America today." - Thom Hartmann

The Rose Garden If we have learned any timely, valuable, costly or painful lessons from the ongoing global pandemic, they should be overlaid with the irrefutable reality that we are inextricably interconnected. Humanity and lesser creatures will sink or swim together. .

Mother Earth - Gaia - Bundu 'Mankind's cash-cow nearing exhaustion, skirting ruination Yet, not done chiding, clamouring, protesting, messaging Humanity joins Mother Earth to lament and weep Together, wail and sob, cry out from the deep Reverse our course, lest life in all forms Be damned, to eternal, lifeless, sleep.'

My memorable moments with Queen Elizabeth II The Monarchess has been able to sail adverse storms, and withstand fresh and unexpected challenges admirably. Her herculean ethos of personal sacrifice above all else is legendary and unyielding. She evinces nobility of character and symbolizes time-honoured values, in an age of turmoil and widespread depravity. Long live the Queen!
