The Supreme Court

Why are corporations treated the same way as people? Why do they have equal/more rights than people?

Allow me to express my frustration in a brief poem:

****

Supreme court so high,

No qualms for corporate bribes,

take the robes away,

and see the strings being tugged,

and upon the catwalk,

hidden not so well,

dollars puppeteer,

beneath its black ensemble.

The Dark Side of the Love Poem

When most people think of Valentine’s Day, I’m sure the traditional love poem comes to mind. I thought today I’d break that stereotype, and write one for the other side of the love poem.

*And yes, before it is pointed out, I am aware that it’s July.*

Holiday of Bitterness and Desperation

Lonely people’s bane,

product of evil florists

and greeting card stores.

Cashing in on heartbreak

and corporate propaganda, Continue reading

An Angel On Earth

She’s an angel, who walks the earth,

no words can stop her boundless spirit,

nothing can slow her rapid mind,

but the scars she bares upon her wrists,

the world worries for her,

she walks the earth, and it would be a tragedy,

for her to be lifted from her feet,

to leave the outstretched arms of a fruitful future,

and deny the world her beauty. Continue reading

The Threshold of Eternity

I’m a Canadian, and as some of you might know, Canadians stereotypically like to complain about the weather. I had that stereotype in mind today… now, I can’t say its true for all of us, but it is true for me. So, to express my frustration with nature, I have created this series of poems: Continue reading

Daily Post asked: Can’t Watch This
When was the last time you watched something so scary, cringe-worthy, or unbelievably tacky — in a movie, on TV, or in real life — you had to cover your eyes?

Torches and Trinkets

 

It goes without saying that this is a very interesting picture. Oh, and the guy who created it is a genius… His name is Pawel Kuczynski, a satirical artist who specializes in creating “thought-provoking images”, dealing with all sorts of real world problems.

I recently did a poem on another of his drawings, which you can observe here:

But without further adieu, my thoughts on the image above:

Of Trinkets And Torches

It’s a reverse life cycle, with a domino effect.

Child of the earth, the bright green tree,

Fire waits for them below, but there is no plea.

A blow to the earth, a twisted desolated wreck. Continue reading

The Prophetic Poems

So, recently, I have discovered that my writings seem to have a prophetic effect.

About two weeks ago, I was working on a rant entitled, “The Internet Is Rolling Over In It’s Virtual Grave”, upon which my internet crashed, and my computer ceased working.

Earlier I had created an Almost-Story about my creativity dying… following that, I suffered writer’s block for several days. (Both of these pieces will be posted soon, once some issues are resolved.)

I have thus concluded, my writings are prophetic. So, lets see how prophetic it might be…

Matching Numbers:

The lottery numbers all matched up,

J.R.R. Tolkien Quotes

jrr tolkien

J.R.R. Tolkien was a great writer, and he had wise words of his own to go with it all. Let me share some of my favourite quotes:

-“Not all who wander are lost.”-

-“If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.”-

-“Faithless is he that says farewell when the road darkens.”-

-“It’s the job that’s never started as takes longest to finish.”-

-“All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.”-

-“A friend of mine tells that I talk in shorthand and then smudge it.”-

-“The wide world is all about you: you can fence yourselves in, but you cannot forever fence it out.”-

-“A pen is to me as a beak is to a hen.”-

And my overall favourite:

-“I don’t like allegories.”- (All wise words from J.R.R. Tolkien.)
