preg woman and child

The sky above is virgin blue;
The breeze has summer’s breath.
The course of Nature’s staying true:
First life, then later, death. 

The children run and laugh and play;
Their adults stand and look,
A little back to miss the spray
The water fountains brook. 

And in their lot’s a sacrifice
That some for others make
Instead of selfishness like ice
Upon a frozen lake. 

The care, concern, is Nature’s course
And not the centeredness
When some because their hearts are coarse
For little lives care less.

Some are offended by this line from the third stanza:
No refuge can save the hireling and slave.

———————————————————– 

Slaves mentioned
And you’re offended?
YOU’RE in chains.

— 

You’re enslaved
To a past that was
Never yours.

— 

Your burden
Is the past you drag
With each thought.

— 

It’s past time.
No one can free you
But yourself.

election 2020

You say you don’t like any candidate? –
Bemoan the nation and bewail its fate?
Then look no further than our blackened soul,
For snow’s not found in all the caves of coal.

Boston_Tea_Party_w

Shed tears for Boston and the troubled tea,
That toast in harbor’s glass to tyranny.
The glass, when raised, was flung into the face
Of one enthroned across an ocean’s space. 

Shed tears for Boston and the colonies
Who felt the anaconda’ deadly squeeze,
The air of life pressed from their breasts and backs
By an oppressive rule and heavy tax. 

Shed tears for Boston who’s been newly led
By liberals by whom their blood was bled –
A brainless Barney Frank’s economy
And “want more government” Ted Kennedy.

Shed tears for Boston now, that once was free,
But slid back to a royal tyranny.

There was an uproar many years ago
O’er Florida, about a suicide.
For days, e’en weeks, the news did overflow,
And was the focus, like all weddings – bride. 

The death of one poor soul is tragic, sure,
But this did all the nation fascinate.
We wondered: how much more can we endure –
The days, the hordes sent to investigate. 

We stirred into a swarm of frenzied bees;
It split us into halves – some mad, rest glad,
And etched a phrase into our memories
Of one who died, and how – the hanging Chad.

When you listen to crying and Murdercrat fears,
And media lying through crocodile tears,
You’ll miss the big news
They try to defuse:
The nation is better than it’s been in years.

stop abortion now


That party should ever lie fallow;
Let’s bury them deep and not shallow.
Deserving, it dies
For murder it plies.
And may we its grave never hallow.

———————————————

Voting for Murdercrats makes one an accessory to the 2500
abortion murders that occur in this nation each day.

murdercrats

(In the U.S. 60,000,000 unborn babies have been murdered by abortion since 1973.)

I say you have the Nazi mind,
And in that I am not unkind.
‘Tis you with baby butcher knives
Who sanction doctors taking lives.

You think that women get to choose
If they should kill their baby Jews.
To you it matters not the why –
That selfishness will make them die.

Why can’t you see the wicked swing
Twixt mothering and murdering?
How hardened is your concrete heart
That in the slaughter you take part!

I say you have the Nazi mind,
And in that I am not unkind.
I’m sure your friends think you’re quite swell
But murderers will go to hell.
