Re: Poems


moral numbness

tribal behavior slips the grip of reason
resulting in lawyers guns and money
comatose to the cost and choice of a war
denying your blood-drenched hands
we have enough of the facts dubya
flesh and bone turn to dust
in god we trust

cowboy diplomacy commended
turn a blind eye to neocon atrocities
dominate the planet through fear
detached and irreverent to autonomy
gated communities thrive
as the world economy takes a dive
moral numbness

could've should've would've
all the oughts the idle meant to do
following primal dichotomy
a distinction between action
and an omission to act
moral conscience or soul
don't taze me bro

collective minds
manipulating tribal sentiments
social convention replaces morality
utilitarian choices are made
excommunicate
unjust sanctions
the white list

undesirable members
ousted from this collaboration
the savage and the splendid
if it is really all about the children
then put down your mouse
and march in the streets
i will walk out of the smoke and fire

Re: Poems


I like to believe that I mellow with age but my writing becomes more radical.

Re: Poems


gender
men write poems and short stories
women talk about their day
men invent and build things
women have babies and go shopping
men plow the fields to grow crops
women plant flowers to look at
men cook meals to be eaten at the table
women warm tv dinners in the microwave
men like to race and go fast
women want to cuddle on the sofa and watch a movie
men have dogs to protect the property and cats to catch mice
women have dogs and cats for unconditional love and to sleep in their bed
men have a good sense of humor
women sulk and hold grudges
men debate politics, religion, and money
women argue ad hominems
men are hunters
women are gatherers

Re: Poems


Really picking a fight, huh ;)

Remember that the gatherers became the farmers and created civilization.

Re: Poems


Kaunisto, there is nothing wrong with being different. The women here really do need to buy a sense of humor and stop trying to homogenize the board. They won't be happy until all us guys sit down to pee.
