Stand Up and Be Discounted (is the name of this blog post)

October 24, 2016

Just like the @ sign for “at,” there should be signs for “before” and “after,” something like this: and

Here is some Trump Haiku:

1.

This Haiku is rigged

It is against Donald Trump

It is so unfair

2.

Whatever I said

Whatever I may have done

It is all her fault

3.

All of your problems

Are caused by a foreign group

Who look down at you

And some Clinton Haiku, too!

1.

It is just my turn

Donald would destroy the world

Nothing can stop me

2.

I can do this job

My opponent is a Smurf

A dangerous Smurf

3.

I am on your side

I advocate for children

Please don’t read my mail

Silly things about TV shows:

  • Nobody ever waits for their coffee to cool down before drinking it.
  • No one says “Goodbye” when they hang up the phone.
  • People don’t like to face one another when talking to each other; they generally stand side by side.
  • On The Flash, Cisco & Caitlin keep loose paper on their desk for the sole purpose of it blowing into the air every time the Flash runs off. You’d think after a couple of years of this, they’d get a paper weight.
  • If it’s a show from the BBC or a superhero show (other than Luke Cage), most everybody is white except the boyfriend/girlfriend.
  • Children can be replaced with completely different children and not even their parents notice (examples include Monk, Frasier & Modern Family).

And now, a daisy which, if you click it, will take you somewhere:

Three Poems. Not Two. Not Even Four, But Three.

October 21, 2016

Rotten Teeth

They give up their teeth

They give up their jobs

And their children

They defend their ego

“Take my teeth,” they say

He misses his 12 children

A new baby will grow up

With dad in an endless time out.

 

It’s the system, not their fault.

They got screwed. It’s unfair.

But this time it will be different.

This is the last time.

They gave away their rotten teeth.

The Eyes of God

When I see with love

Those are the eyes of God seeing through me

Living Bridge

I will melt into this poem

And emerge with the truth

A bridge from rock to God;

No longer shall I phase between the shadows

I shall build my home

of rock and spirit

And fill it with real things


And now a flower, in case you want to go there:

The Question

Every poem is about What am I?

Every question is What am I?

The Universe demands to know what it is.

What am I? I am all of this and nothing

Negativity in Poetry

angry couple

I am Angry

I am so angry

I am angry at everything

I want to throw and smash things

All because of machines

and the incompetent people who service them

Three Short Poems and a Daisy

June 11, 2016

Eating

I’ve been eating a lot recently to evade fear and anxiety.

I feel rather uncomfortable in my body as a result.

Other than that, it’s a great solution.

As for my large belly, I tried sucking out the extra food through my navel with a vacuum cleaner, but nothing emerged.

I just need to build a second mouth, next to my first mouth and eat through it.

The food will go unharmed down a tube and be repackaged for other over-eaters.

A Single, Short Poem About All of Us

September 3, 2015

>

Human beings:

Happy, decaying blobs of quickly putrefying rot

painfully isolated water droplets seeking and fearing merger

self-aware matter freaked out by the obvious

poets

That’s today’s poem from Daisybrain. Click this daisy to see more Daisybrain:
