    Land of the Beast-666

    In town, the sheriff represented the law with a 6 pointed star.
    He enforced it with his trusted 6 shooter.
    When they bury you, you're buried 6 feet under
    and there are 6 pallbearers to carry the casket.
    The American flag has 6 white stripes between seven red ones.
    There are 6 coins in our money base-penny,nickel, dime,
    quarter, half dollar and the dollar.
    We speak in 6 tenses-past, present, future, past perfect,
    present perfect and future perfect.
    There are 6 vowels- a , e, i, o, u and sometimes "y".
    There are 60 seconds in a minute, 60 minutes in an hour
    and 360 degrees in a circle.
    And when you get off work, you go to and buy your 6-pack. You go home and plop down in front of the 6 sided box called a TV. You click the remote so you don't miss the 6 o'clock news. And when the newscaster's words bristle the hairs on the back of your neck, your 6th sense stands on end as you rotate on a planet that races around the Sun at 66,600 miles per hour !
    This "is" the Land of the Beast
    and you are in his house.
    Welcome home !

    Rich - This was penned for the open mind to see that the world we live in is full of signs and symbols. Often, we forget to look. Usually because they appear as everyday things but I hope this serves as a reminder to think on. Thanks Rich. Glad you enjoyed. Namyh

    Hello Harry...

    :wave:
    This was an interestingly eerie read.
    It forces one to step out of ignorance's bliss
    and into the reality of things.


    As always the read was enjoyed!

    Coco – I know! I know! Just when you thought it was safe to march proudly in the steps of ignorance, I had to come along and write this to rain on the parade, inject a dose of reality and stop the bands playing while the floats deflated. Your enjoyment makes it worth it. Namyh
    P.S. – I kept the eerie balloons anyway. And yes, there were 6 of them.(LOL)

    Ok Harry:
    Now you really have done it this time.
    I enjoyed the read, but can you tell me
    how you managed to get the poem to
    fall in that formation. Is that the devil?
    You are so crafty I tell ya and an awesome
    writer.


    Much Luv

    HH thank you for the site map to our

    local universe

    man you mapped this out so clearly you're are clearly "smarter than a 5th grader"

    you really hit a homer here with this piece

    AND YOU ARE SO RIGHT IT IS SIX

    THE MONEY YOU USED COINS WELL THE DOLLAR BILLS WE USE ARE

    A DOLLAR BILL, A FIVE DOLLAR BILL, A TEN DOLLAR BILL, A TWENTY DOLLAR BILL, A FIFTY DOLLAR BILL, AND A HUNDRED DOLLAR BILL

    i see why the $2 bill had no chance

    thank you for opening my spirit up even more than it already is
