The  Investigation Into Russian Interference

Termed “A Witch Hunt” By President Trump.

I’m a believer in verifying the truth and evidence and
apparently there are actually Witches???

“Alone in thy mind, alone in thy name
Alone is thy fame, alone is thy shame
A step towards the grave, Alone will be the soul
Some walks will bother you…But sadly…you are alone in this game”

Epiphany

by HemmingPlay

When the sun comes up like thunder

I knew a guy.
Cancer survivor,
worn down to the lacy bone,
thin, with dry skin.
But a light shone through
his stretched parchment skin
like some kind of
organic fire.
The brush with death
left a calling card.
“I’ll be back” it said.
“You won’t know when.”
