This Is Not a President

RectFace1000153

This is not a president saying, “Make this pipe great again.”

And the pundits can’t be heard shouting, “Vote for a new president, who will pipe other great things.”

And the child can’t be heard stating, “The pipe is rusty.”

And the artists say, “This is not a pipe. Or rust.”

And you say?

Facebook Has an Ass

(This post was censored on Facebook because it was “unsuitable for the community.” No explanation. What’s your guess why it was considered unsuitable?)

Champagne for a few, crumbs for the many.
Was this really the plan?

*

The business of weapons fueling wars
sung as necessity by keyboard whores.
Injustice dressed in many names
to parade, distract and entertain.
Truth wearing shackles, designer chains,
behind sparkling bars in a rusty game.
Beauty finds ways to light the cracks
to guide the steps of sharpened facts.
Life nourishes love’s basic power
uniting hearts to storm greed’s tower.

Hip, Hip, Hypocrisy

IronChestFace1040391

Let us shout about the genocide three generations ago and remain silent about the genocide happening today.

Let us claim that the invaders, occupiers, suppressors, destroyers and murderers have a right to defend themselves and a right to exist, and never speak of the rights of the people who nourished their land in peace for centuries.

Let us speak kindly about rabid racists and label those who criticize them as racists.

Let us feel good about ourselves as lights of liberty while maintaining our heads firmly up our asses.

Because we are worth it.

The Rotting Chairmen

Think of getting out of the box.
In September of 2014 a “great” march took place in New York City. The organizers claimed that this march/demonstration “would change everything” because the people (one million?) were “demanding bold action from our world leaders to do something about global warming.”

I wrote: “Let’s hope the marchers have a good time. They will accomplish nothing. After the march and after the climate summit and after all the sunshine words in the fog, it will be back to BUSINESS as usual, that is to say, the merciless beasts will be back to hunting profits.”

How many times do we have to perform this farce of appealing to the “leaders” before we realize it’s not going to change anything. We don’t have leaders. We have rulers. But whatever we call them; leaders, rulers, owners or merciless beasts, we must be blind not to see that the people in control are out of control. We demand improvements and things get worse and worser (sic) year after year after year. Business as usual; the status quo; the prevailing order, hunts profit. It’s a money-oriented system and the tiny group of people at the top of the system will do anything and everything to keep the system going. The people’s welfare and the fate of humanity do not figure into their calculations. We don’t exist for them as human beings, but as numbers on their charts as consumers or voters or “useless eaters.” Our fate, needs and desires reach them as problems, not concerns. They view a people-oriented society, as opposed to their money-oriented one, as a deadly threat.

Unfortunately, almost all of those who are aware of the decadence and dangers of the prevailing money-oriented structure of the global village, maintain a pre-digital perspective of struggle along with a analogue language to talk about it.

Hell of a Life

If you try to avoid life, hell will find you.

 The leading official of the rotting empire
murdered a man on a peace mission,
covered his corpse in a shroud of lies,
and went on his way.
Before he goes to hell,
hell will come to us.*

 

*(Unless we sanction the corporations running the empire.)

Organs of the Soul

PassionLust1000161

 Love – Beauty – Justice – Truth – Mercy
These values are not separate entities.
Together they form the organs of our soul,
vibrating within every human
throughout the community of humanity.

Every Homo sapiens,
whether living as a hunter-gatherer or an urbanite,
possesses the ability to love,
owns a sense of beauty,
embraces a pathos for justice,
respects the truth
and has a capacity for mercy.

Love brings us together.
Beauty confirms the health of function.
Justice allows us to navigate the dynamics of community.
Truth anchors us in reality
Mercy defines our humanity.

We cannot neglect one of these values
without neglecting them all,
no more than we can neglect our lungs,
blood, bones, eyes or guts
and expect our body to sing with health.

Love – Beauty – Justice – Truth – Mercy
All or none
All or nothing
All,
in vibrant health,
in an harmonious chorus,
singing the praise of life,
or no memory in the universe
will harbor a spark
of Homo sapiens light.

stems from oxygen’s lust
to join with iron
and do what love must.”

Life Is the Root of Love

IvypyusT_1156
It’s not that we live in a world without love,
but in a world where the love of money rules.
The money lovers decide.
What’s good for profit profits.
What’s good for life and people
finds no sympathy, no encouragement.
The love of money
—the blood of evil—
runs through the veins of commerce
bullying culture to dance in decadence
to the music of loud nothings throbbing without context.
The love of money
—the blood of evil—
fuels the machines of politics
and the institutions of power
grinding simple dreams into pills of illusion,
redecorating honorable words into gaudy slogans.
We live in a world where the love of money rules.
Its empire reaches all 360 angles of the earth
and imagines
(as all empires have always imagined)
that this particular empire
is exceptional,
and will not meet the destiny of empires.
Possessed by the love of money
and blinded by money’s glow
it cannot see that life and love
are preparing another show.

*

(Picture text):

”Life = the name of light’s living matter.
Love = the force holding life together.

Life is love. Love is life.
Everyone knows this.
Few understand it.
Life gives it.
Lovers live it.
Life gives.
Love is.

Sometimes it’s simpler to simply say god,
but god knows it’s not simple.
It’s wonlifelovefull.
Live it!
Love!”
