    Family, being in the Air Force, I wasn't going to speak on this but...I just gotta...

    :peace:

    Abducted by conscious
    thoughts that war has been
    brought justly to
    they,
    the haves
    and
    we,
    the have-nots

    I am and have been immeasurably
    & systematically part of
    that so-called
    war-mongering flock;
    the
    governmental establishment
    if you will; therefore

    practicing abstinence
    is my only
    vengeance against the
    rage of the system I’ve
    sworn to protect for 22-plus
    years and what now seems like
    an eternity in my mental

    Retaining my
    individual voice hits home
    hardest when my precious seeds
    ask “Daddy do you hear?”

    So I place my hands tightly over my ears
    to conceal
    the loud noise of what they themselves
    listen to…now more than ever

    Cowboy Bob
    (somewhat of a euphemism) :wink:
    in the
    bush
    banging the drums
    mightily

    Reciprocally, I bang in return
    with a conscious awareness;
    perhaps more so than others…still dancing
    to the beat of my own thoughts
    though &
    respectfully
    practicing abstinence

    Melodic cries of peace are heard across these
    current
    Divided States of America
    (as if we needed more of this divisional ****) :madd:

    Diplomatic, autocratic, democratic:
    it’s all symptomatic of the problems
    caused when worlds and ideologies
    collide…

    Were we listening when Rodney said:
    "Can’t we all just get along?” :confused: :fight:

    or
    when
    Shakespeare told us:

    "All the world's a stage,
    And all the men and women merely Players;
    They have their Exits and their Entrances,
    And one man in his time playes many parts…" :grouphug:

    Thus my entrance begins when my exit
    is set in motion with the tap of my keyboard
    keys when I make love with words; :love:
    circumventing
    yet another strange syndrome
    (been fortunate not to catch that friggin' case) :censored:
    Been there; done that 12 years
    before…and don’t really want to go anymore!

    So I abstain from the pain these
    hawkish
    day & nightmares
    cause
    but yes, I
    understand the pleasures most feel
    when the
    white dove
    of indulgence flies high

    gee-que.


    you may abstain... but one thing remains
    irreversably the same & that is...
    you have a wonderful way with words. (RT)
