Do You Remember

Do you remember the time

When the things that were real

Were the morning and the sun,

The evening and the moon,

Your faith, family, friends

And your lover,

A dog and a cat

Came along and were gone

You remember them still,

Like the laughter in the wind

And the tears in the rain,

Why not go back again

To the things that are real.

Revelations And Incidents

Watching Trudeau hiding scandals

Like a cat covering diarrhea,

Watching Democratic vandals

Blaming the Russians

For the Biden laptop

Revelations,

Watching politicians climbing

Out of the stagnant pool

To point fingers and bullshit,

Watching intelligence agencies

Floating in the slime like

Crocodiles with only their

Eyes breaking the surface,

Watching the mainstream media

Clapping and cheerleading

Manipulating viewers like fools

And then,

The whole sordid mess

Is aptly framed by the

Toobin incident.

Rumours

Of course there are many rumours,

Remote internment camps,

Tracking chip implants,

Social score system,

Government controlled

Digital currency,

Of course no one believes

The rumours,

Was it that way in Germany

In the nineteen thirties and forties,

Most accept lockdowns and

Wear the masks for fear of death,

Many are glued to TV sets for the

Latest statistics and instructions,

A few with ominous thoughts and feelings

As they watch Agenda 21 – the Great Reset –

Inching closer like slow moving lava.

Do You Squirm

Do you squirm

When you read about

The Nazi’s quest for a

Perfect world,

Do you squirm

When you hear about

Social scores and the

Uighurs’ plight in China,

Do you squirm

When people are treated

Like non-humans in your

Own country,

What about

Agenda 21, the great reset,

The new world order.

Chicken Littles

Living

On the North American side

Of the Ring Of Fire,

On the edge of the locked

Cascadian Subduction Zone,

320 years since the last

Mega-thrust slip,

Most unaware

Few even care

And yet,

A bug from Wuhan

And we shut the country down,

The WHO pulling u-turns

Politicians like interns

People in masks

Hiding at home,

All morphed into

Chicken Littles.

Boxes, Ties, And Trump

After fifty plus years

Of counting down the hours

To place an X in the appropriate

Box,

One comes to the realization

That it doesn’t really matter

In which box the X is marked,

Similar lies from different colored

Ties

Taunt and laugh that you didn’t

Catch on sooner,

Perhaps that’s why the US silent majority

Looks to the rebel Trump to kick the shit

Out of the corrupt and stagnant boxes.

What Do You Think

When you look at

Your children

And they are almost

As old

As your grandparents were

When you were four,

What do you think,

When you see young people

Not more than eighteen

In masks and black

Waving their fists

In the faces of an

Elderly couple

Drinking coffee

At an outside table,

What do you think,

When you listen to

Bureaucrats and politicians

Posturing, deceiving, contriving,

Covering their scandals and bullshit

Like a cat covering its crap,

What do you think.
