Got mad at Comcast.
Discontinued all services.
Will not be as frequent with blogging, as you may have noticed.
Have many new poems to post in the future.
Back to pen and paper for now!

naughty little no-see-um
you vicious little creature
go back to where you came from
you blood-sucking feeder
prey upon another
something your own size
you hungry little mother
invisible to my eyes

Have you ever asked, "Where do my taxes really go?"
If so, here's the answer...

the "blind" vegetarian has little defense
where carnivorous humans make no sense
"here, come on and try it, it has no meat"
as you partake in what they offer to eat
tricking the unknowing with a tainted meal
from their numb conscience, the ones that blind feel
how proud they must be when the blind can't tell
like feeding humans to themselves
then you find with little disguise
that your meat-free meal once had eyes
the carnivores laugh with, "what's the big deal?"
as you're slowly sickened from their calloused reveal
little do they know that their Sunday beliefs
are just like your moral code they defeat
I would never trick a Hindu to eat a cow
nor would I have a priest retract his vow
what if the meat was coming from their pets
would they trade their slaughter house for their vets?

the noble crow
atop his tree
the falling leaves
all he sees
and metal boxes
rolling around in
clouds of toxins
with carpet grass
of noisy creatures
the human race

As per the Casey Anthony case:
People who kill other people aren't on the same page as most other citizens, so why do we think the death penalty will be a deterrent for them? Do you think they actually say to themselves, "I'm thinking about murdering someone, but that darned death penalty is standing in my way."
Kill people who kill people, what whacky logic. It is beating up your child for beating up another child or cheating on your spouse because they cheated on you. It's an immature response by vengeant people. When have two wrongs ever equalled a right?

“A haughty look, a proud heart, and the plowing of the wicked are sin.”
Do we learn nothing from history and its lessons?
Pride consumes us.
I have great respect for the late Nikola Tesla and show you a man with true humility:
When an engineer (Otis Pond) once said to Tesla, "Looks as if Marconi got the jump on you" regarding Marconi's radio system, Tesla replied, "Marconi is a good fellow. Let him continue. He is using seventeen of my patents."
“You were perfect in your ways from the day you were created,
till iniquity was found in you.”

Somebody turn the light on
My bulb has been out for awhile
Won’t someone court my way
on your white horse riding in style
I lie in waiting until that day
the day you discover me here
Unshackle me from my solitude
and forever hold me near
