Paint a Picture



The artist

The poet

The philosopher

The cheat

Create the landscape

Another politician takes another seat

A portrait is painted

Subject sits and waits

What the painter see’s is open for debate

A poet brings life to words

Bends them together with their skill

Bends them together with their will

Philosophers use logic

Ontology and ethics create arguments that they empart

They mold their reality

Closer to the heart

The cheaters

The liars

The unfortunate breed

Collectively misdirect the people

They employ the magician’s creed

For everyday average people

The most powerful tool we can use

The pragmatic use of common sense

Prevent those who wish to abuse 

Be wary of your judgements

Our information is incomplete

Deceiving others is unfortunate

Deceiving ourselves not realized is much more discreet

Media Puppets



Look who’s talking

I heard it on the news today
Geraldo Rivera the talking head

“OJ’s on parole” the newscasters say

Henley’s dirty laundry

More relevant even now

Everything has spin

False stories more than logic will allow

Is there any ethics in media?

Are these truly impoverished minds?

Telling us what to think?

Do they really inform us or do they keep us behind the blinds?

The failure to report

The people behind the scenes

The real crime of broadcasting

Tell us ohh journalists-tell us by all means

Show us the curtain

Show us the Wizard of Oz

Reject the current media puppets

Who tried to sell you the ” Santa Claus ”

Hold them accountable

Spotlight these egregious tube-heads who say

John Q. Public is not smart enough

From the begining to the end of the day

House of Cards



I’ve paid my debt 

My patience my coin

Taxed on the outcome 

My friend chaos I rejoin

How to replace the adversity we face?

Dissolution of our expectations 

The silent tears leave no trace

Disquietude is clear no songbirds do we hear

 
The grays dominate

The grays begin to appear

Misfortune is met with an unchanging mindset

A tailspin attached

Down an alley with no outlet

A house of cards

Built by a stack that is balanced and displayed

Won’t win the game from the suit and hand underneath that is played

If I had to wager

One thing is for sure

There is no certainty 

In the probably of a life

That is insecure

At the quantum level

Heraclitus was right

A metaphysics in flux

A human intuition to excite

The Dawn of Humanity’s Twilight


City is burning

Embers fall throughout the night

Burnt ashes of a homestead

Human flesh fertilizes soil after it sails through the air on its flight

Who has the authority?

Who has the right?

Machiavelli in The Prince

Endorsed it from his sight

The imposition of law

Governance to make things right

Can still manipulate the laws

 And still make us fight

As in a society

A military uses its might

So does a single person 

wronging another out of spite

An eye for an eye

The two wrongs that don’t make a right

Only love can conquer the world 

Not a soldier and his smite

Whosoever dwelith in this world

Look back and use your hindsight

If we continue on this path

Till be the dawn of humanity’s twilight

The Axiom of Trust


The first principles

 

The most important dynamic in a relationship is trust

The most important way to convene a mutual trust is by communication

Our skill level is important in our effectiveness, and our affectivity in communication

Our integrity about our self-assessment is also crucial in the communication equation

Do we sacrifice our values for security?

We painfully drift through the day with hope we may have miscalculated but still we wait

Part of our intellect rejects our suspicions

Part of our intellect has faith in the glass half-full

But still we tread upon the uneven grounding in doubt

Wobbling around the cliff on a bluff of loose soil and gravel

The axiom of trust is arguably learned through trials of error

Persons with good role models stand to do better than most

The final challenge is dealing with ourselves

Have we mistaken ourselves for something we are not?

The delusion-fueled pride that is easier to see in somebody else is clear, yet we fail to see it in ourselves which can lead to a lifelong challenge for us

If we are not ourselves, than are we just a ghost of a persona we impersonate?

If we are not honest authentic beings, are we but hollow shells of an adopted person-hood?

The beginning point of meeting anyone worth befriending is someone whom will be themselves

This is not to criticize influences and artistic expression that emulates others

This is an honest expression of yourself as you relate to the world without the contrived and conscripted persona’s we sometimes use for some comedic value per se

We are agency’s of expression and not necessarily artists of expression


Distillation 𝟸


An intellectual and emotional war engaging

Two factions of a mind under assault

A minuscule war that devotes much of our sub-conscious psyche

Leaving only the residue of a parched intellect

Like pages turn yellow in the sun

Only the educated

Only the ethical

Only the duplicitous really know

The tricks to deal a narrative

Is it a straight tunnel, or one that is daft?

Do I believe myself?

Am I on the right track?

Talk yourself into a corner?

Talk yourself into the light?

All roads lead to where you are!

Be You a Captain of Industry



So you’re a man of letters

An alphabet soup after your last name

Sitting in an ivory tower

Moralizing putting other people to shame

Who gave you this moral turpitude?

You sold out your fellow man

You prostituted your values

Ironically you don’t even understand

Education was the first

That Carnegie and Rockefeller attacked

They infiltrated the system

A globalist idea that was hatched

The “oilagarcy” revised American history

Their puppet board of directors influenced the change

The U.S. Literacy rate now at fourteen percent from the nearly one hundred percent that was exchanged

Those who conspire against us 

Are soul-less creatures of greed

To them we mean absolutely nothing

But only profits of the consumeristic creed

So you have a taste of the honey

Without the sting of the bee

Act like the pharohs of Egypt 

Act like modern day royalty

Be you a captain of industry

Be you a man of the field

Your position doesn’t make you special

Nor how much you make from the yield

No matter how much money you made

If you stand against humanity

Your deeds do not go unnoticed 

With all of the suffering and misery

Tesla would have freed us all

Not dependent on energy

JP Morgan the financier killed Wardenclyffe tower

And made his technology disappear 

If you measure your life by your money

You are bound to a system of debt

If you measure your life by helping others

There may be hope for you yet

From these Ashes


Today I rise

A former self in disguise

I must own my mistakes and move on

From these ashes I create a new song

I must find the strength from within

From these ashes I must forge a new path to begin

The past is gone

Am I to relive it?

Or am I to go on?

The truth to finding our way

Let go of what’s gone 

Begin again, begin a new day

Attachment is misery

Buddhist and Taoist will agree

As in the Western world

The apple doesn’t fall

Too far from the tree

How sick must I be

If I stumble and I fall?

Never to get up

And continue to crawl?

Forgive us of our folly

Forgive us of this pain

If you want to forgive yourself

Dust off your ashes and begin again
