Touching Glass in a Crowd

by HemmingPlay

The Earth burns and seas
Simmer, choke, seethe,
Smashing warnings
Against the complacent,
Flooding
Sticky-tacky vanities
of rich and poor alike
With implacable indifference,
Erasing intrusions in wilderness
With mountainous, hideous
Flames and heat and smoke.
Hungry cougars flee into a plastic
Melting suburbia ill-suited to
A new reality.

But we still misread the moment.

As usual.

Like Pharaoh,
One plague after another

A Can Good Overcome Evil? Limerick

by Joel Kravitz

And what makes it especially chilling is that this Evil is supported by Evangelical Leaders and people who profess to be Christians yet do not live their lives in accordance with the teachings of Jesus.

I Am The Wind, I Must Move

by HemmingPlay

wildflower_sunset

It was always thus:
The Father sun rises in the sky, the days lengthen, energy stirs the world.

I am born. And once born, I move.
I must move.

My siblings and I sweep through bare branches,
Laughing, whispering high and low through village
And city and farm and water,
We race and set power lines thrumming, push dead things
Against fence rows,
We sing along the high ridges and lift eagles
Above the forests, looking through their
Sharp eyes at the vista spread wide beneath.

I swirl in from Cuba, over the French Quarter and pick up
The mystique of fresh biegnets, snippets of jazz, the
Quiet sounds of suffering and joy,

I am Poltergust, mischievous imp of the air,
Slipping under spring dresses and flipping them upward,
Exposing long legs, hearing the squeals,
Snatching laughter, mussing girls’ hair, sprinting away…

A Suckers & Dupes & Marks, Oh My Limerick

by Joel Kravitz

Steve Bannon sees Trump supporters as ‘suckers, dupes and marks’

“It shows these four, sort of, Republican leaders treating the actual Trump supporters, the people who are, you know, who are — the president’s base, as a bunch of suckers and dupes and marks,” he said. “And the contempt with which they apparently treated the actual people who support President Trump is kind of — is one of the more shocking elements of this crime.”

by Joel Kravitz

There is no limit to the POTUS’s abuse of power. At what point do all of the Members of Congress fulfill their oath and defend the Constitution which has six voting rights amendments?

A Couple of Citizens United Revisited Limericks

by Joel Kravitz

citizens-united-cartoon

Political Lobbies and Lobbyists weren’t enough for an economy built on corporate profits. With greed as the fundamental ideology of the American economic system, Corporate America raised the stakes in the game with Citizens United. However, Citizens United, in their smug arrogance, intoxicated on their “money power”, seems to have forgotten that two can play the game, and that there are super rich in America with a conscience.
