The Push

Searching without sight Attempting to peer beyond the veil Blinded by the light Deafened by the wail Paralyzed at the forks Presented in the road Losing my direction Losing my abode Something rages within Pushing forward even still And so I begin again I submit to the will It pushes me ever on In spite …

S.S. Perdito

S.S. Perdito Where did you go When the storm sent winds rending too and fro Your glorious vessel tossed here and there Bending, creaking, and thrown by retching air You, her captain, stood statuesque upon the frame Sure footed , eyes a lit in cool blue flame Stalwart and proud, focused on the tirade One …

Life in Captivity

I know its been a while since I have posted, which is directly related to the following post. I seemed to have locked myself away from the more intellectual and quizzical parts of my mind in an act of self-preservation.

Never Invited to Parties!

As a young child learning about our current government's legislative workings from a teacher working for and paid by the government, I sat misty eyed at the "pure genious" behind our current bi-partisan or two-party system.
