There’s a reason

Those who can’t see on

The face of it

All the obvious bullshit

Yet he wants to split

With allies now foes

Who knows where this goes

We are in the throes now

Of a president who kowtows

To his puppet master

Whom our agencies identified faster

As meddling in our sovereignty

But the purported man of pee pee

Has no actual dignity

Or ability to lead

We all should take heed

Lest our nation’s bleeding be

The last drops of democracy


Who Are We

Who we are


We are who

We were raised to be


With added learning you see

To become you, to become me

Life lessons

Start with Mom and dad

Then broaden from

Relationships we add

Learning what to keep

What to add


What to throw on the heap

Not Only Naive

I’ve begun to delete

Thoughts replete

About our current situation

I cannot stand

For I want no hand

In ruining our great nation

It is with regret

I’ll no longer let

Them ruin my elation

I must try to be

The truest me

And use my imagination

For how to repair

Love, nation, air

And our once fine reputation

I’ll now take my leave

A quite fine reprieve

But with no indignation

I look toward the skies

Hoping we will all rise

Restoring us to our foundation

A melting pot

For those who have, and not

Let love be the culmination

‪Humble Curiosity‬

I am humbly curious

For how we’ve come to this

This point in time

Of fearfulness

And ugliness

And distress

What a mess

But I am willing to hear

Some other address

How we can coalesce

To return to the best

For you, me,

All humanity

Let us see

How good we can


This Way

Independence Day

Holds sway


And every day

Against the hā-


Of the sway

Of tyranny

We must pay

Mind to

Those who would use any way

To slay


And prey

On the downtrodden

To keep the citizenry at bay

We must stay

The course and pay

The price to remove dismay

‪Should Be One Humanity‬

Black, brown, white, yellow

Isn’t he an interesting fellow

Yellow, Black, White, brown

Do not keep a good woman down

White, yellow, brown, black

From where will come the next attack

Brown, black, yellow, white

It seems from here comes all the fright

A Renewed Dawning

I seek to be inspired

Not mired


Not tired.

No instead I aspire

to raise higher

and higher,

removing the ire

I at times get

from every liar

and crier

that some admire.

I perspire,

staying out of the crossfire

to retire

those who conspire

to acquire

the entire


Yet I’ll continue as a spitfire

holding the feet of those

most do not desire

to the fire

so that the entire

compassionate citizenry does not tire

and instead preaches to the choir.

That we are the rectifiers

and fortifiers

creating force multipliers

so that the next occupiers

of government that we hire


to be purifiers,


and magnifiers


dignity for all.

SCOTUS Limerick # 2

‪Kennedy’s news and a Muslim ban back to back‬

‪The Freedoms we all hold dear under attack‬

‪Those opposed must protest together‬

‪In this growing storm of bad weather‬

‪To keep the deck from being more stacked ‬

SCOTUS Limerick

‪Justice Kennedy just announced his retirement‬

‪A moderate voice on the SCOTUS just up and went‬

‪If the blocking of President 44‬

‪Is now thrown out the door‬

‪We opposed to 45’s nomination must loudly vent‬

Fabric of Society

This fragile thread will

Remove the threat


Stitching all those

With compassion, empathy,

With finery, not fear

Pulling together

Disparate swatches of humanity

In a beautiful patchwork


Of determined,

Concerned citizens

Who cover the dying

monstrosity that is hate

As it takes its last breath
