Symmetry in Oregon….
I’ve been gone awhile, obviously; my recent forays into the world outside have been at once time-consuming, and quite ‘interesting’…. That’s a bit obscure, but, what else is new? Well, I’ll tell ya…. not much. I’m working on a fresh Pearl, but, haven’t been able to spend much time at the computer, for a number of compelling reasons, so, it’s going to be a couple more days before that will get posted…
I wanted, however, to let anyone at all interested to know, I WILL be back, in a couple days, to post what I’ve written (which will, I hope include a new poem). To sublimate the urge today, here is one of my poems, which may just be the best I’ve done… If naught else, the final line is a real zinger, & i hope you enjoy it…
Platitudes for Attitudes
Platitudes shake us, attitudes break us.
Life can be a real pain, y’know?
Still, if we don’t fight where it takes us,
it’s a pretty straight row to hoe..
A lot of what we see and hear
isn’t always in the best of taste.
Life at large can be one long frisson of fear.
Making an effort often seems a huge waste.
Pundits, dogma dogs, myrmidons, oligarchs & pimps;
assholes and predators every one.
Twisted, sick, anti-humans; anomalous, ignorant wimps.
Logic says, every time, lobotomize ’em, & be done.
Illusions, delusions, confusions, a dedicated data dump,
bilious, divisive, spicy with hatred and fears.
Inflation, immigration, promises from the clownish Trump
Leaving even our basest survival heavy with tears.
Ancient sages left signs on the path to peace,
for those with wit to see.
No need for undue effort, no quest for golden fleece.
All we ever need to do, is be.

Well, that’s all for today… Y’all take care out there; be well, happy as you may, and for everyone’s sake, be strange….
