humpty-dumpty's in the dumpster



humpty-dupmty’s in the dumpster [1]
by d. umpted

humpty-dumpty’s in the dumpster, shouting “it’s fake news!
all the while creating that (in which he would accuse)
all the while behaving like an egg that never hatched
all the while (the public screams) “we wish we could go back!”

all the while the power-pushers tout the status quo
all the while the earth gets sucked of energy (and snow)
all the while the gunners amm-unite for one more kill
all the while the innocents sit home and eat their fill
_________________________________________

  • while humpty-dumpty rants and raves,
  • while middle-classers dig their graves,
  • while dic-and-taters are the norm,
  • while (oh, my god!) the perfect storm.

to kneel or not to kneel



to kneel or not to kneel [1]
by neal orstand

to kneel or not to kneel
to stand or not to stand
to fight for what is right (it is a task for any man)
to play, to stay, to run away: to ponder what you feel
to be caught in the middle, now:

to kneel or not to kneel
_________________________________________


  • be-cause those in the limelight are trapped – between friends, family, feelings, and finances.
  • because the act of kneeling just might be the act-i-on of taking a stand.
  • because everything could be at stake.
  • because, in this world, there are no guarantees.

what will your verse be? [1]
by uni verse

what will your verse be?
who (pray/tell) am i?
what will take us from the backyard sandbox to the Sky?
what will take us from the murky puddle to the See?
what will you decide (today), oh:
what will your verse be?
