Dartwill Aquila Week – Day 4


Dartwill Aquila Week, 7 quotes a day for 7 days
Picture is of a sculpture by Beth Laurin
Day 4 – Dedicated to Michael Parenti (1933 – ), If you are interested in history, the media, intellectuals or truth, Michael is your go-to guy.

They were addicted to having fun
to dull their lack of happiness.


It can be proven mathematically, biologically, religiously and historically
that we all belong to the same family.
But until it is felt, nothing is proven.


I’m gonna curl my feathers and paint the tips of my wings.
I’m gonna pierce my beak and wear gold identity rings.
On my breast I’ll get a tattoo, “Cats just ain’t my thing.”
and do my tail in the style called Party Flyers’ Fling.
I won’t be able to fly and I won’t be able to sing
but everyone will see that nobody pulls my strings.


We’ve all got a ticket to the future,
but the seats aren’t numbered
and they keep moving the stage.


Pebbles, dust and sand,
the remains of greatness in history’s hand.


If they refer to listeners as “ears”
and viewers as “eyeballs”,
what are they going to call lovers?



The West Bank is now the Judea-Samaria area.

    Thanks for dedicating this to Michael Parenti. He’s one of my favorite writers on my blog. Has he seen this yet?

      I have no idea if Michael has seen this. Please inform him if you can.
