The CURSE of VERSE (for better...worse) - V

Blancmange - THE GAME ABOVE MY HEAD


1

Someone said there's a place in my Head where the Living and the Dead carry on discourse.

I denied that anything inside could be forced to provide any proof of being in there.

Then the giggle of the Chorus who had gone so long before us burbled up through the porous part of Me I call my Mind.  

Laughing they said that I'd made my Bed and to argue with the Dead proved me Madder than I'd feared.

I inhaled my Dread realizing I'd fed my Sanity on the Bread that They couldn't really be there.

Once again the Chorus giggled as upon my chair I wiggled and the line I drew grew squiggled between Them and Me.

So misled - so many Years I sought a Thread to follow backwards in my Head to take me to my Source.

... to be continued.

Some Days...


... my afflictions win and I am left breathless, powerless and in despair. All options exhausted for the moment, hour or day I stand bathed in my own sweat and shame for having failed to prepare for the inevitable battle. 


Once again my stamina has deserted me and I am left a twisted knot of emotions. Entangled, I struggle to free some part of myself. Just a free hand or leg or feeling. A still point in the swirl of twisting rope. Clarity, a pause - a second to catch my wind. But then follows the flailing against the maddening knot. My efforts rewarded by tighter bonds.


Angered now, I reach for the old tools. Dull from age and overuse but still lethal if used with enough power. The lashes, the bruising I inflict on those I love. The scars I give myself. And the ropes hold.


Frenzy finally surrenders to exhaustion. I stop because I can't continue. No nobility in my feeble surrender.


All that remains are tears. Hot and bitter. Even they yield at last to sleep.

Dear Sarah,

The BUSH DOCTRINE is a term used to describe the policy of pre-emption attributed to United States President George W. BushSpecifically, the Bush Doctrine focuses on the controversial policy of preventive war, which holds that the United States government should depose foreign regimes that represent a threat to the security of the United States, even if such threats are not immediate and no attack is imminent. The Bush Doctrine was used to justify the Invasion of Iraq in March, 2003.

Put Simply (simply-er?) - Shoot first and justify it later. You know, like that boy did to your daughter! Get it now? Let me know by lookin' CRAZY...


Good Girl! Now go get a juice-box.

"I can't help myself!"

She Drives Me Crazy - Fine Young Cannibals




Well, I guess we can cross "Abstinence" and "Teen Pregnancy" off the Republican platform this year. Maybe a free condom could have helped? At least the Redneck Double-wide vote is a lock.

Ralph Nader, Jesse Ventura and Cindy Sheehan are having a meeting in the Twin Cities so I guess the Idiot vote is still up for grabs.

Viva Democracy! Only in America can a complete moron rise from anonymity to mediocrity!

P.S. Now, since the nation has heard her talk about God, guns and how the ANWAR needs drilling, I have re-evaluated my previously harsh critique of Gov. Palin into these few points:

  • Tina Fey called, she'd like her look back.
  • Polar Bears called, they'd like to avoid extinction.
  • I can't hear you when you whine.
P.P.S. The joke actually goes:

- What's the difference between a Hockey-Mom and a Pit Bull?
- You could kiss a Pit Bull if you had to.

Later This Week! 
  • JUNO in Juneau?
  • Hijinks in Underage, Alaska?
