Lost and Found

I was lost

And you found me

You walked out of my dreams

And into my life

And that made all the difference

In the world

As you entered my life

I was all alone in this cruel world

And you provided shelter

And comfort

I did not know what I wanted

And you gave me what I wanted

You gave me meaning

You gave me purpose

You gave me love

And understanding

peace and happiness

Joy, laughter and fun

You were endlessly fascinating

Could not keep my eyes off of you

You were the most beautiful women

In the world to me

And you still are

So many years later

Like a fine bottle of wine

Gets better with age

And you gave me

Endless nights of wild love making

Which has gotten better

As well

And I fell under your spell

from the day I met you

I was lost

And you found me

And if you go first

I will be lost again

Can't live without you

By my side

Thus is has always been

Between us

We are so entangled

So interwoven

And that is the way

It was meant to me

the voice of my doom

walking deep in the woods
high above the city
near the airport

I heard them
then saw them

hideous black crows
looking at me
cackling at me
laughing at me
mocking me

calling me names

I asked what they wanted
they laughed
and said
nothing but your doom

and they flew around me
dive bombing me

and surrounding me
calling me names
in Korean and English

as I fled down the trail
with the demon birds
hot on my trail

Donald Trump and the Vulgarians Rise to Power

I hear them coming

I see them coming

I fear them coming

Trump and the Vulgarians

Lusting for power and revenge

It ain't right they say

I hear them coming

I see them coming

I fear them coming

The white man has been given the shaft

The nigger president gone too far

And now they want to make a bitch President

I hear them coming

I see them coming

I fear them coming

They have gone too far they shout and scream

Anger pouring out of their faces and their whatever

Rabid dogs from the no fly lands

I hear them coming

I see them coming

I fear them coming

The elites on the coast

Continue to look down on the Trump

Say he is a clown say he is a simpleton

Say he is dangerous demagogue

I hear them coming

I see them coming

I fear them coming

But the more they sling at him

The more they deride him

The stronger he gets

I hear them coming

I see them coming

I fear them coming

The deplorable who support him

Know that they have got the elites right where they want them

Behind the barrel of their proverbial guns

I hear them coming

I see them coming

I fear them coming

The fly over country the fuckistanian

Jesus land multitudes

Are on the march on the coastal elites

Rabble rousers out for blood tonight

I hear them coming

I see them coming

I fear them coming

And blood they will have

If their hero their champion their Donald

Is denied his right to rule over them?

The rights to them have sold

To the highest bidder

I hear them coming

I see them coming

I fear them coming

And Donald knows that he is a fraud

A con man a film flam artist

But he knows his marks knows his rubes

And gives them what they want

Gives them what they need

I hear them coming

I see them coming

I fear them coming

As they give the whole rotten system

A god damn finger up the ass

Hoping to blow the whole thing down

I hear them coming

I see them coming

I fear them coming

You Will Be Punished

You Will Be Punished for Protesting

The Principle has a message
For those who don't stand for the National Anthem:
Obey or be punished.

"You will stand, and you will stay quiet.
If you don't. you are going to be sent home,
and you're not going to have a refund of your ticket price,


I would love to see some brave students defying Nemeth's idiotic proposal by conducting a mass sit-in during the Anthem at the next game.
He can't do anything about it.

It's appalling,
really, because

you have to wonder
how awful the government classes
must be at his school

Is his school in the US?
Or in North Korea?

Do they not teach students about the Constitution anymore?
What happens to students who refuse to say the Pledge of Allegiance?

Are they punished, too?

What happens to athletes
who remain seated during the Anthem?
Will they be allowed to play at all?

When will Nemeth issue an apology?

(When he stops being an ignorant fool,

I would also love to hear him explain

-- in a video to the students --

why he's wrong about this issue.)

"The statement made by the principal of Lely High School
arises out of a context
in which students
in the stands
at a school athletic event

we're being disruptive
at the start of
and during the national anthem.

He has spoken
with our students

to explain that his statement
was based upon the disruption
that school administrators observed occurring.

The district recognizes a student's First Amendment right
to express his/her thoughts and ideas.
For now

But if President Trump Becomes President
All bets are off
Ha ha ha

However, the law refuses to see
As Frank Zappa sang so many years ago

That there is no great society
As it applies to you and me
Unless your uncle owns the store

if a student paid to see a game
and sat quietly in the stands
during the national anthem,
we would not remove the student.

The student is seeing the game
at that point
as a member of the public.

True patriotism is upholding the First Amendment right to free speech."

All Hail President Trump
The invincible
Leader of our great country

Strong Wine

One night

I was starring

In my wine glass

Deep in thought

When I saw

Something in my wine

That haunts me still

I saw in the bottom of the glass

Evil doers abandon evil

And became saints

I saw rich men give up

Their awesome greed

And poor people

Awarded dignity

And all men

Became brothers

All women

Became sisters

And war ended once and for all

And peace broke out

And hatred disappear

And I stared

Into my glass wine

I drink the wine

Hoping the vision

Would infect me

And change the world

But alas the world

Remained the same

The evil doers came back

The rich continued to conspire

And the poor still remained poor

And the war continued on and on

So I drank my wine

And went to sleep

The Shape of History

Once I too had ambition

I had the usual dreams of glory and grandeur

All I wanted to be was to be a great creative genius

Only I did not know

How to kiss ass creatively

Once I had dreams of greatness

I would be glorious and free

All would envy and admire

This man so noble and great

Now I am tied down in mirthless mire

Once I hustled

Once I took no shit from anyone

Once I wanted the universe

Now I am contended to shit

And refuse to bustle

Why bother anymore

In the gathering gloom

Of the foreseeable future

One thing is certain

I do not want a room

On the scrap heap of society

And yet that might be my fate

Yesterday Morning

Yesterday morning, I awoke

Like most mornings

I was still dead I walked

Out of my drug infested slum

Into my computerized car

Down the freeways of my mind

Searching for the pot of golden dreams

I stopped in at a Resturant

Drank copious amounts of free coffee

And saw all the people

One by one disappearing into the crowds

All I knew was wrong

Or worst yet a figment of your imagination

Every person changed

Transformed into an interchangeable computer's robot

All the same

All the same

Everything living in instant suburbia

Moving their meaningless life

All the same all the same

Not me screamed my coffee as I sat

Yet another victim

Of our creeping collective insanity

Just cogs in the wheel

Cogs in the wheel

And so I go down the road

And get in line
