Give me . . .



(from https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/politics-news/24-hours-later-trump-claims-he-misspoke-helsinki-meant-say-n892166)
". . . Trump attempted on Tuesday to clarify his widely criticized comments in Helsinki, saying that he had misspoken when he said a day earlier that he did not see why Russia would have meddled in the election. Trump said Tuesday he meant to say he did not see any reason why it wouldn't have been Russia that interfered. . ."


Give me a fucking break
How much more of this
Do we have to take?

If You . . .


. . . Didn't see it coming?
. . . Then you're blind

It was right before your eyes
For such a very long, long time
But instead of truth and right
You chose ambition and your climb

Do you fear things that could happen
To your plan if truth be told?
You should fear, the more, disaster imminent
As this thing goes uncontrolled

You dismissed and rationalized, to date,
Devastation undertaken
Acting like a schoolboy
Whose team victory's been shaken

Now the world has seen the impotence
Clearly present, still ignored,
Of one we've place in charge of all
Who has given us our reward

So what to do now?
Clearly this situation we must improve,
If we are to remain a noble state
This aberration must be removed

Water . . .

(https://www.nrdc.org/onearth/water-human-right)
". . . The United States and 40 other countries abstained from the U.N. vote to recognize access to water as a human right (in 2016). . . Human rights come in many forms; they aren’t all prohibitions hammered into the stone tablet of the Bill of Rights. Americans tend to talk about only this kind of right, though. For this, I blame Thomas Jefferson. . . We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. . . Jefferson’s passage is so beautifully clear that it has come to define the word right in the American mind. But he is describing just one kind of right: the preexisting negative right. Preexisting because it doesn’t need a government to create it, and negative because it describes something the government cannot do: It cannot take the right away. Leave us alone to pursue happiness, Jefferson says, and we’ll be fine. Most of the rights in the Bill of Rights are corollaries to Jefferson’s description, but the Bill doesn’t ever claim to be a complete and exclusive list of human rights. . ."

Stuff . . .


(from https://www.psychiatry.org/patients-families/hoarding-disorder/what-is-hoarding-disorder)
". . . Do you have trouble discarding (or recycling, selling or giving away) things that most other people would get rid of?

Because of the clutter or number of possessions, how difficult is it to use the rooms and surfaces in your home?

To what extent do you buy items or acquire free things that you do not need or have enough space for?

To what extent do your hoarding, saving, acquisition and clutter affect your daily functioning?

How much do these symptoms interfere with school, work or your social or family life?

How much distress do these symptoms cause you? . . "

Arrival . . .

. . . live from the beach . . .


The baby's arrived
With much care
And much patience
She's happily adjusting
To her home far away

After many a day
Without any practice
Or workout
I attempted a foray
On this gem anyway

Cover . . .

. . . up

(from http://www.msnbc.com/rachel-maddow-show/paul-ryan-warns-if-dems-win-theyll-hold-trump-accountable)
". . . But it’s use of the word “subpoenas” that jumped out at me. . . What the retiring House Speaker seemed to suggest was that Democrats, if given any meaningful authority in Congress, would take steps to hold the president accountable for his actions. . . Or put another way, Ryan wants voters to back Republican candidates in order to ensure that the pro-Trump cover-up can continue on Capitol Hill. “Vote GOP in 2018,” the slogan effectively goes, “We’re against oversight and accountability for Republican presidents.”. . .

Beach . . .

Rhythmic waves in endless blue folds
Gently tumble consistently
And coat the creamy sand
Where both meet

Calmly, serenely,
The symphony plays
Irrespective of the day or night
And soothes all beings

Needs . . .

It's sweltering
As some may say
The heat
With the humidity
Leaves beads of liquid
On my skin
When barely
Making an effort

I'm not complaining
Rest assured
I find little fault
with oppressive conditions
Particularly when
Compared with other seasons
That require stratum
Of clothing for warmth

But during these Dog Days
While running amock
In my newfound freedom
I do, in my
Indeterminate wisdom
Discern the need
To keep the body
In hydration

As a result
I eat and I drink
In amounts
More than needed to suffice
My attempts to be comfortable,
Healthy, the like
Would be better assisted
If I could only get ice

Brothers . . .

From the pre-4th of July celebration (2018) at Bourbon Street on the Beach (Ocean City, MD) . . . Everybody Sing!. . .


I'll be your Blood Brother
By your side through thick and thin
I'll be your Blood Brother
Just as long as I don't have to bloody
My ha - ands

Bar rooms sure have a funny way
Of bringing loyalty out in a man
Buy a drink and tell a joke
And buddy you've got you a friend
But keep a good eye upon that friend
Because he really doesn't give two hoots
And don't say anything about his Mom
His girlfriend or his army boots

I'll be your Blood Brother
By your side through thick and thin
I'll be your Blood Brother
Just as long as I don't have to bloody
My ha - ands

Walked into an auto-mo-showroom
I need some wheels but got no money to spend
When a guy with an ugly tie
Walks out and acts like he's my long-lost friend
I said hey Buddy I've a purpose here
And if you please I will accomplish my goal
So don't you slap me on the back again
Cause if you do I might just lose my control

I'll be your Blood Brother
By your side through thick and thin
I'll be your Blood Brother
Just as long as I don't have to bloody
My ha - ands

So please be careful when you meet someone
Who'll make a promise at the drop of a hat
And don't provide them with encouragement
You will regret the day you offered him that
Cause everybody needs some empathy
But just how willing
And how far will they go
To really help you when the chips are down
Can they be trusted half as far as you throw them

I'll be your Blood Brother
By your side through thick and thin
I'll be your Blood Brother
Just as long as I don't have to bloody
My ha - ands

Morton 2 . . .


One day, Morton the mantis was feasting upon a sumptuous array of beetles, grasshoppers and crickets when, off in the distance, he spotted what appeared to him to be, a most gorgeous lady-mantis in obvious search for food. This, thought Morton, could be the fulfillment of his every dream. A mate with whom he could share his insect bounty, and maybe even his very future, a prospect for which he always had yearned. The lady-mantis lured Morton with her pheromones. Suddenly, Morton felt an inescapable urge to dance. He danced and danced approaching her ever so closely.  His dance brought him within touching distance of her and he found that she seemed agreeable to his close presence now.  He began, without fully understanding how or why, to climb upon her back as she was much larger than he in size. Then, as conscious thought and action grabbed a backseat and instinct took over, the two became one in a timeless tango of passion and procreation. Then after a period, as females of the mantis persuasion often do, she bit off his head and devoured his corpse for nourishment.

Morton 1 . . .

(source: http://animals.mom.me/stages-praying-mantis-life-cycle-6282.html)

Morton the mantis came of age in, what seemed to him, an inordinately lengthy period of time. He dreamed, joyfully, of the moment when he and his mantis-mate would finally 'join' to lead a life of bliss (connubial and otherwise).  Slogging through adolescence, Morton found himself larger in size than before; certainly larger than all of the other nymphs. He began to shed exoskeletons periodically and occasionally tended to be sluggish and unable to eat. Finally that annoying molting process ended at the beginning of summer, and Morton found himself to be a mature adult.

Beginning . . .

The reality is now starting
To sink into my prickly old brain
There will actually be
Opportunities now
To devote some attention to me

It's not that I'm totally neglected
'Cause commitments to other things teem
But at times I seemed
Truly disjointed
By conception of relevance deemed

Obligations have been requited
That were owed to compulsory things
Now the future is brimming
With options to choose
I sit perched at a new beginning

What . . .

. . . a fit!

(from The Emperor's New Clothes by Hans Christian Andersen)
". . . The emperor came to them with his most distinguished cavaliers. The two swindlers raised their arms as though they were holding something and said, "Just look at these trousers! Here is the jacket! This is the cloak!" and so forth. "They are as light as spider webs! You might think that you didn't have a thing on, but that is the good thing about them.". . . "Yes," said the cavaliers, but they couldn't see a thing, for nothing was there. . . "Would his imperial majesty, if it please his grace, kindly remove his clothes." said the swindlers. "Then we will fit you with the new ones, here in front of the large mirror.". . . The emperor took off all his clothes, and the swindlers pretended to dress him, piece by piece, with the new ones that were to be fitted. They took hold of his waist and pretended to tie something about him. It was the train. Then the emperor turned and looked into the mirror. . . "Goodness, they suit you well! What a wonderful fit!" they all said. "What a pattern! What colors! Such luxurious clothes!". . . "

Of Men . . .



"The best-laid plans of mice and men often go awry."
-Robert Burns



. . . like when you have a list of things to get from the hardware store, so you can fix your dining room light fixture and 'intrusive' cable and television cords and your car will not start, but the battery is fine, a problem of which you were pretty much aware, which began a month ago but manifested itself more clearly as the radio and cd player intermittently cut out when you touched the turn signal, but as of late began happening more frequently, like when you made turns or hit bumps, but allowed you to travel about 3hours from home before manifesting itself again, in the form of not starting at all, even with a hot shot, on a Saturday afternoon, bout 1:30 when most garages have closed, not to reopen until Monday so you were unable to make it to the hardware store and therefore, unable to accomplish any of the things you intended to and so on and so forth . . .
