January 9, 2011 by slpmartin shock jocks and other misfits… their acidic words poured out of the radio onto the surface of the brain melting away all reason leaving corroded thoughts of life and purpose and then the synapses said ready aim fire https://slpmartin.files.wordpress.com/2011/01/shock_jocks_misfits.mp3 Share this:ShareTwitterLinkedInLike this:Like Loading...

I really like the depth of the poem…”and then the synapses said ready aim fire” hit home…very timely.
Too much cruelty and hate going out and we now have more channels to send them.
Apropos for all that is going on.
I knew you would be a voice of clarity in the sea of confusion and misinformants. What a tragedy that we have such material to write about, eh? -Sue
I missed your voice and poems Charlie…. Thought provoking and so very sad!! oxo
It’s good to see someone taking a pop at those nasty people.
Great write! I am so torn up about AZ, and being away not there makes it all seem so unreal. Reading helps– thanks.
Fantastic. First the grave was dug then they went out to create a corpse.
oh, this can be read from many angles, charles! i’d like to think a little less recently and take those voices we’ve all heard as whom you were speaking of…
I wish it were not true!! Sadly, these horrors reveal the destruction that exists in the human heart.
Well done, Charles. Now, if language has the power to influence negative actions how do we use it to influence Positive acts? Thanks for your thoughtful comment at my blogcasa about humans as ticking time bombs. Unfortunately one of our human time bombs exploded in AZ. What are we as a people going to do to defuse other such bombs?
Sad… brilliantly written Charles-
So glad you’ve said your part, Charles! Thanks for these perfectly-timed words of wisdom!
when reason failsus all hell would break loose…….
Excellent poem – acid is a great analagy to use.
Do families just close their eyes, feeling equally powerless?
Oh wow!! Succinct, but so very tight!
The amount of (unwanted) spewing that happens on the media these these is killing! Your poem brings out this issue really well, C.. bravo!
some words do have the effect ! I hope such words are not corroding but comforting !
Okay, now I know who stole the One Shot Wednesday mic! lol Excellent word choices throughout. Written with great precision. Cheers, Charles
What beautiful words and art. You certainly get right to the heart of things.
