More Block . . .

 


Here, nothing but time
On my dirty hands, to no
No avail.
Try as hard I might,
Pour-ing every ounce of 
My energy 
Into a song,
The only thing I can do for you.
Something is wrong.
Barely a note breaking through.
Hardly a clue.

Dry as a well.
Arid as the desert 
I seem to be.
When will it end?
We will see

What, you’re asking, 
Is there to be concerned 
About in this anomaly? 
Sure this kind of thing 
Happens all the time to
All practitioners of 
Rhythmic expression.
Propelling souls into space; flying
Evoking so 
Many emotions within,
Out of the din.

But in spite of this,
I will persevere in
My endless quest for 
Voice to express
What I feel.

Right. . .

. . . as in the "CORRECT" thing to do . . . 
 (from https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/white-house/michigan-gop-lawmakers-heckled-arrival-white-house-meeting-n1248396)
". . . In a joint statement issued after their approximately two-hour visit to the White House, state Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey and House Speaker Lee Chatfield said they accepted the president's invitation "as we would accept an invitation from any sitting president if asked to meet," but said their position that the voters are the ones who pick the state's electors was unchanged. . . As "legislative leaders, we will follow the law and follow the normal process regarding Michigan’s electors, just as we have said throughout this election," their statement said. . ."

More . . .

. . . Malignant

I know so little. But still
I feel so strongly.
My will may seem immovable ’til
Damage does exceed cost of pride.

So self destructive it seems.
Measure neglecting the team,
Enacted for selfish means.
What’s in it for me? Tell me please.

Was it neglect during my childhood?
Do you suspect foul play?
All of the wealth in the world
Can’t correct it.

Glaring defect in character
You can detect for miles.
How can you suspend basic logic
Like thin air?

Wondering where is our sanity.
Was it thrown out with the trash?
Have all our standards been compromised
Or is this just who we really are?

Dangerous . . .


". . . Christopher Krebs, who led the federal government's election cybersecurity efforts, has been fired by (Trump) via Twitter. . . Rep. Jim Langevin, D-R.I., who serves on the Homeland Security Committee and is a member of the Cyberspace Solarium Commission, a joint government agency to create a comprehensive U.S. cybersecurity strategy, said in an emailed statement that Krebs "is a public servant of impeccable integrity." . . . "(Trump's ) inability to accept the election results and his lashing out at those willing to speak the truth about his lies has gone from petulant to downright dangerous," Langevin said. . ."

Music . . .

“Information is not knowledge.
Knowledge is not wisdom.
Wisdom is not truth.
Truth is not beauty.
Beauty is not love.
Love is not music.
Music is THE BEST.”

Roadblock . . .


I can see clearly now
The path that lies ahead.
The obstacle most obvious
We very soon will shed.
Our concentration can resume
Without distracting, daily shock.
New day is dawning. Wakeup now.
We're rid of that Roadblock.

Poison . . .


(from https://www.nbcnews.com/think/opinion/trump-s-2020-election-lies-prove-there-are-no-moderate-ncna1247504)

". . . Former Vice President Joe Biden has won the election. Every one of these Republican members of the House and the U.S. Senate are sophisticated politicians. They all have some fluency in vote counting, and they know Trump lost. The president's dangerous accusations are baseless. And by encouraging them, conservatives are injecting cyanide into the country's polity. It's a lethal poisoning of faith and belief in the system, and it is astonishing to see it playing out in real time. . . "
