Category: Rants I suppose


Santa Barbara

Fear 
grips the city,
loose pipes,
leaking roofs,
holes in stairways
smoky airways.

Clear skies,
resplendent-
views
through
cluttered hedges.

Infested rooms,
scurrying,
here
          there
stench
so
sickening,

Absent
          headlines.
Nothing
done,
said-
ignored.

Why?
    Why?
Because-
This
    This,

P a r a d i s e.

Now, share your life with me.

I’m listening.

Did you ever think that you telling them lies about The Tooth Fairy, Santa Claus, The Easter Bunny and Noah just might have caused them to think that God is just another one of your made up fantasies?

What is it with people who can’t identify an Internet hoax when they see one?  I receive email like the following way too often: Proposed Amendment. Don’t these people spend one iota of time checking out what they are forwarding?  It’s not just the content that’s being forwarded it’s that I know these people and they are not gullible.  If anything, they suspect the kid selling magazine subscriptions at the door to be a con-artist.  Really?  Where is their “paranoid radar” when they read this stuff?  Why forward it to hundreds of people as well?
