Upon This July 4, 2020

by ladyliterati

On this #4thofJuly2020 I remember the sacrifices of our ancestors who gave their all. Men from all ethnic backgrounds stood up against tyranny – They were Americans, equal in the fight for #Freedom And now, we must become equal in the fight against #Dictatorship #SaveOurDemocracy

Oh, Child

by ladyliterati

Dear child, do not ask me why(?)

this, I can not explain,

why hate haunts every corner

and a president fuels the flame

but this, this I do know

the hate must clearly go:

The Broken In Me

by ladyliterati


I’ll comfort you.

when times get rough

you’ve had enough

& no longer feel tough

just feel like giving up

I’ll comfort you.

when tears of despair fall

I will catch them all

toss them to the rain

wash away the pain.

then you’ll come to realize

this, this, is where love resides.

there once was a man in a bunker

who said, “I need to hunker”

Dystopia

by ladyliterati

Denial…delay…deception…trumps response to Covid19 Pandemic

Over 107,000 dead.

Insensitive…Inept…Inarticulate…trumps response to George Floyd

Devoid of empathy, compassion.

Brutality…Brandishing… Bayonets…trumps response to Protests

“Battelspace” war cry on peaceful protesters.

Defiling one of God’s House for… Now wait for it……………………………

“The Most sacrilegious photo-op in American History”…trumps response to jealousy (Biden)

Just a friendly reminder: “There were NO reports of ‘looting’ until AFTER trump tweeted:

“When the looting starts the shooting starts”…a racial slur from 1968.

FACT: American Generals Are Fed Up With trumps Racists BullShit

The Revered General Mattis made that PERFECTLY Clear!

FACT:  Esper? “I am against the Insurrection Act at this ‘time’”…

Americans are on edge wondering if he will retain Honor and Integrity for the United States Military or be pulled into the dictator wanna be’s attempt to “Dominate” the American people.

FACT: DEMOCRACY UNDER THREAT!

FACT: DEMOCRACY UNDER THREAT!

Americans Have Sacrificed So Much For What?

by ladyliterati

The voices of the dead can not cry

so we cry for them

we cry for answers, justice, equality

and we cry for accountability.

Common Grief

by HemmingPlay


A local story tells
of a dam that blocked a creek in late ’60.
The water rose, year by year,
seeped over a poor family’s
rocky homestead,
the one that was supposed
to be an assured future.
58 years under
the dark, cool waves,
bass and perch swimming past
foundation stones covered in mud and algae.
The loss of a dream
is a reason

Centre Stage

by Megha's World
scott-umstattd-137399-unsplash.jpg

We are at the center stage
hounded and cheered by the million hungry eyes
ready and pumped to get
a piece of the entertainment
of their life
to get that taste of the bloodied reality
and voyeuristic truth
we have been gulping down our throats
through all this life

Guidelines for Confession

by Megha's World

“Wait for that wisest of all counselores, Time.” 
― Pericles

They say confessions
can absolve you
They can make you pure.
You will be pristine
as the seraphic soul.

Football Militants

by Nick Anthony

Flags as large as ships’ sails
Waive to and fro in solidarity,
Billowing with pride.

The masses—
Whose fully erect arms
Are only an open palm away
From a formal Nazi salute—
Fill the flowing tapestry of banners
With air warmed by their impassioned voices
As they chant and sing
The acrid cries of war.

Judgement Day

by Nick Anthony

When He came down from the heavens above,
We welcomed Him, arms wide open with love.
We showered our God with adoration
And eagerly sought His revelation.

Prostrated before His magnificence
In an attempted rite of recompense
Under the golden throne of creation,
We prayed for everlasting salvation,
