Splintered

Splintered

i remain offside
quietly listening to
others as they 
dig up dirt
verbally assaulting
one another for how
they approach issues
attacking them for
opinions that differ
maintaining my distance
by keeping my upper lip stiffer
so that I maintain
some sort of strength
to pick up the remains
when they are done playing
their judgmental games
so we don’t all end up
in the same log splitter.

Crestfallen

Lake Erie, Pennsylvania, Sunset, Beach 6, (where the infamous UFO sighting from 1966 was) —*g.a.meeder, 2016, Copyrighted*

Crestfallen

if ever there were

a time on the pages 

of life where we could 

re-write, edit, change

it would be in these

times of the present

where we would most 

assuredly have

kinder ends…

Grandstander by Default

Grandstander by Default

grandstanding is

what you do best

now you act as if

meeting with the NRA

you got the political bullets

to clean up this mess

and in some magical way

your actions will grant you

the presidency by default

because you think you got this

guess you will manipulate

your way or the highway

as always by

bully thrusting it in

one way or another

what makes you so special?

is it just because

you are who you are a

rich, fat cat, reality star?

you think?!?
