Logos & Mascots

Logos and mascots

Some great

And some not,

Some don’t need

Explaining

Some are distraught,

One thing’s for certain

No other can pass

The most appropriate mascot

The Democrats’ Jackass.

Tongues

I was going to write

A happy one,

But Wheeler started

Talking,

It brought to mind

The summer of love,

When Durkan did the

Mocking,

Of course one can’t

Forget the goofy times

When Lightfoot’s tongue goes

Walking.

Beyond Imagination

The realization

That due to our pity for weeds

The garden has become

An entangled toss of

Thistles and thorns,

Due to our lax education

People have become

What we see in the streets,

With faith and dignity

Abandoned and twisted,

Our tossed salad of elected

And appointed officials

More concerned about self,

Political parties and affiliations,

Than service and leadership,

The realization that most of us

Aimlessly major in minor things,

Foretells a coming life of slavery

That is beyond imagination.

Mandatory

Mandatory untested vaccinations,

Where did our basic human rights go,

Mandatory don’t leave home orders,

Which parliament proclaimed prisoners

In your own home,

Mandatory business closures,

Did we sign off on forfeit freedom,

Perhaps it was the language neutering,

The illusion of inclusion,

The prima donna politicians, bureaucrats,

Prancing, dancing to it’s all about me,

That turned things upside down

And we became servants

Or is it slaves,

Of governments.

Rio – Agenda 21

Some see it happening

Some don’t connect it

Some don’t believe it

Many never heard about it,

In June 2012 –192 countries

Met to discuss the future,

Dubbed Earth Summit

Rio – Agenda 21,

Crazy as it sounds

Most Western countries

Didn’t understand the

Ramifications,

Or did they …

Had they read

The Fourth Turning,

Most of us have read,

Animal Farm and

1984,

Guess what

It’s happening.
