actuarial dilemma…

actuarial dilemma

are they
still counting
yes
i thought
they’d be done
by
now
they’re not
weren’t they supposed
to
be done
yes
so what’s
taking
so long
people
keep on
denying
and
defying
common sense
so
they keep on
dying
from
the virus

steady as a rock…

steady as a rock...

all those marches
for folks murdered by police
can’t sway the scales of justice
the fulcrum’s rusted
nothing can move it

 

 

personal denomination…

personal denomination

my love is my religion
and unlike other faiths
it produces no wars
nor leaves the earth scarred
due to awareness of this fleeting existence

 

 

euthanasia…

euthanasia

once
a beloved family member
charged with nurturing
and
sharing life’s wealth
and tho
it was given
there would be
no
massive lifespan
this
sad reality
has been forced
by
the reoccurring
drain
of
resources
so it is
that
earth
has decided
to
put humans down
to
relieve
the pain
and
suffering
of
the world

 

 

this too shall pass…

this too shall pass

now
don’t take
this
personally
but
all your hopes and expectations
have
no foundation
in history
quite to the contrary
history suggests
that
your optimism
mirrors that
of
those
whose graves
we stand beside today

republican voter suppression…

shadows of yesterday
lingering behind closed eyes
muted moments of life
held in fear‘s bondage
to make freedom unobtainable
