politics

   Thread Started February 9 at 2:00PM


State of America

It depends who you ask, to the conservative viewer,
it's a 'welfare state,' and going down the sewer

This is where I leave your fantasy planet,
for your views are so different, and the distrust you vent

is so disturbing to me, I don't think we'll ever
agree, did you ever have empathy, or has it always been never?

Was there ever a human beneath your angry facade,
was there a time when you believed in a merciful God?

When did 'of the people, by the people, and for the people,'
get erased from the flag that flies from your church's steeple

President Lincoln uttered these memorable words years
ago, when did they become irrelevant? It is now fear

of 'them', the takers, and not the makers, the very ones
that this government exists to serve, the sons

and daughters who are down but not out, who need a hand
up, and not a handout, because if this is the state of our land,

we're in a world of hurt, and the future looks bleak
A land where the privileged live high, and the hell with the meek

When some sit high upon their throne, they then believe all things they own,
and those that seem to have much less, to them they see as just some pests...
Why should they give them what they need?, they don't deserve more than a bone.
If mother's cannot feed their child, let us eat first, give them the rest.

I once was proud of this my home, but now my heart has lost that thrill,
We're all the same, no matter what, and once we often had to share,
but that's not what we're all about, although I hoped we'd be so still
and in my heart, I wish for more, I don't believe some folks do care...


Just Some Thoughts!

Good points, Mrs!

   

A book by our own Alec Gould.

One man's take on life told thru humorous short stories from his childhood on into his mid-50's; from feeling like an outcast in school to being an adult. His intent: hope. Hope in that you shall see, no matter how rough life can seem -and is- at times, that you may be able to enjoy it. Each story will bring a laugh, a smile, a tear, a lesson.

The 23rd Annual Book Awards said:
"We Really Need To Laugh" shares “memories which will resonate with many readers. Overall a creative presentation of the author’s life given in a rather sing-song poetic story telling style; a pleasant read"
