Energy Crisis of the Flesh

ColorfulBear-1050518

The greatest and most tragic energy crisis walks, crawls and begs among us.

Humans are the most spectacular and intelligent form of energy available, solar energy in the flesh, the only form of energy capable of diverting humanity from the trail of extinction. These magnificent biological machines processing energy are abused, misused or not used at all while problems grow and spread like naked landfills spitting angry steel and bleeding fire. All this energy, all this intelligent energy capable of making choices and decisions, gifted with the ability to judge right from wrong, and endowed with the talent to love, trudge under clouds on sunny days and twist in dark frustration laced with fearful chills on star-confused nights. Or lay dormant. Or enslaved. Or broken. Or confused in a boat of illusion on a river of tears pouring through the cracks of a seemingly lonely soul.

All this energy, enough to do everything that needs to be done, suffers in obedience to false idols preaching glittering lies and diversions from manicured smiles. This intelligent energy is afflicted with ignorance cultivated with industrial efficiency by titled whores drugged on worthless gifts and junk esteem. This beautiful and graceful energy that can dance from heart to heart and sing smiles on simple gestures limps in clumsy fear injected by greed-diseased powers for the sole reason of maintaining greed-diseased power.

Only the power of all human energy united in harmony in the body of humanity is powerful enough to remedy the ills that threaten us all and turn the earth into a garden of lust for a healthy world of love, justice and the pursuit of happiness.

Dandelions and Plunder Monkeys

MaskrosBukett

What a good read I said to myself when I had finished The Dandelion Insurrection by Rivera Sun. And unusual. A delicious story with nourishing political content spiced with distinctive characters and served on beautiful prose. Love, adventure, struggle and thrills. What’s not to like? For an old grassroots political fox such as myself I wasn’t about to allow the sweetness of the fiction seduce my perception of bitter realities.

I wrote to the young Ms. Sun, told her how much I enjoyed her book and questioned what I considered the strategic weakness of the book’s politics. To my surprise, this very busy lady not only replied promptly, but sympathized with my critique and reminded me that The Dandelion Insurrection was merely the first book of a trilogy and implied that the arch of strategy would manifest itself in the coming editions.

The second part of the trilogy, The Roots of Resistance, made its appearance just days after our email exchange. I immediately downloaded an e-book edition that I’ve just finished. Taraxacum officinale! (= dandelion) Forget good read, think great!. This book educates, inspires and humbles. When I had read the 4th chapter I wrote to Rivera and thanked her for the description of John C. Friend, the politician, THE politician exemplifying them all, the servants of the plunder monkeys. I told her that the description of Friend alone was worth the price of the book, not knowing then that the analysis deepened.

Love is woven throughout the book, love as strong as the determination of life, and nonviolence forms a major theme; not the goody-goody kind, the nice, moral or comfortable kind, but courageous nonviolence as a necessity to succeed in the struggle for a better world.

Thanks Rivera Sun, and congratulations to everyone who has the opportunity to hop on the Dandelion Trilogy

Spotlight On the Money Train

LightHead1010363

The sun spotlighted the old-weed hat
worn by the mossy rock
and glittered the water
in praise.

*

The money train does not go to happiness
despite the stops along the way
offering sugar and glitter as promises
that it will get there.

*

Nature doesn’t ask for permission
to please our soul
with beauty.

 

Friday the 13th greetings from Dartwill Aquil

100% Snipering and 1% Vipering

Pecheki-1050476

Now that the friends of the American government of 1%ers,
in the de facto Israeli-American military outpost,
and piggy bank for the American weapons industry,
are snipering unarmed protesters to death
and maiming an additional dozen for each death,
the American government of 1%ers,
that has troops and mercenaries illegally placed in Syria,
has threatened to go to war with Syria.
The illegal occupiers,
mercenary providers
and notorious liars
claim
without a molecule of proof
outside of their official corporate media sources
(run by 1%ers),
that the Syrians are killing Syrians with poison gas.
The murdering snipers?
They will be deployed to Syria
to help the American government of 1%ers
perform their standard performance,
kill Syrians to save them from Syria,
just as they have done in Vietnam,
Cambodia,
Nicaragua,
Afghanistan,
Iraq,
Libya
and any other country the 1%
have judged worthy to be bombed into salvation.

A Speck of Me and All of We

Duxnor-1050443

Detail of old graffiti

It’s a complicated world,
so much is happening.
I’m torn, damaged,
yellow with fear
and try to stare straight ahead.
I trust my smart phone,
suspect dumb people,
and never suspect that my phone isn’t smart
merely obedient
and that I myself are more obedient than smart
because people aren’t so dumb
just frightened and obedient
like me.
Me!
I don’t really stare straight ahead.
How can I when I’m always looking at me?
Me!
There’s something comforting about me
even though it’s torn, damaged
and yellow with fear,
too obedient to doubt what it’s told,
too frightened to see
the world isn’t so complicated
if I stop thinking of me
and see that what’s happening
is not only happening to me,
but happening to WE.
