THE LAND OF THE FREE AND THE HOME OF THE BRAVE

THE LAND OF THE FREE AND THE HOME OF THE BRAVE

BY CHARLES ROBERT LINDHOLM 

How free are the free
How brave are the brave
In America today? 

Have we learned our lessons
From the past
Or are we doomed
To repeat our errors, again?

Enough of This Sh(ee)t

by Rhyme In Time

Some thoughts on the recent events in Charlottesville …

We’ve come so far, so how can this occur?
How is it simple pigment judgment blurs?
How can we still believe humanity
By outward cast divided we should be?

The Silent Parade

by Rhyme In Time

Upon this day in 1917
Silence spoke injustices obscene.
For arbitrary pigment of the skin
Was used to justify the gravest sins,
And artificial lines divided men
Who otherwise could easily be friends.

An “A Dream Disappears And A Nightmare Reoccurs” Limerick

by Joel Kravitz

camps

The Trump Administration is ready to take another shot at an immigration ban. The “if at first you don’t succeed, try, try again” approach to business has worked for him and with no regard for the collateral damage that comes with the “if at first you don’t succeed” part (or comprehension of the scope of damage a government will cause versus a casino going belly up), Trump plows on with his anti-immigration policies and immigrant discrimination. He also took the time, or didn’t take the time until he could avoid it no longer, to denounce the rise of anti-Semitism and heinous anti-Semitic hate crimes, which are terrorist acts and need to be treated as such.

You ask what I think
of the rioting in Baltimore
as though you think my brain
processes information differently
than an average human brain
somehow filtering out bias
seeing less subjectively

Peace

by Lakshmi

And maybe peace is not
A bilateral talk in an air-conditioned room
With high security to defend the privileged
It is the perpetual sorrow and spirit of warring men
And women, their numbers dwindling like a waning crescent

I, is You!

by thom amundsen

love

I want to tell you a story,

it takes a bit to get there

somehow I need to find the right words,

that syntax, and grammar, sort of thing.

When We Are Children

We can really dance forever,

streaming across golden grasslands

running wild with passion,

in crystal autumn winds.

A Donald Sterling Limerick

by Joel Kravitz

I try to keep it as light as I can…most of the time. But then something happens out there in the real world that requires a comment on my part. I have been an NBA fan since I was 12 years old. So it would be impossible for me to not be disturbed by the racist comments of an NBA owner, especially because it is a league of great opportunity for the African American community.
