I will be 50 in 2 weeks (23 december);

Should I have a party? Celebrate?

Cast your votes now please.

 

And not a joke….

My friend’, I asked, I gonna have party will you come?…

Desparately…

“yeah, I’ll happilly come to your party, I’m your best friend….

But don’t be negative, at your party.”….

He’s the one calling people names,…

But I’m the negative one?

Party cancelled.

 

But life,

Prospects, dreams have changed since then;

So very few weeks ago.

 

It used to be said ‘life begins at 40’;

Is 50 the new 40?

I’ve spent 20 years overdosing, hanging cutting my coward wrists

To not be here for 50!

 

It’s clear I’m incapable of decision…

So like Big Brother….

You decide, cast your votes…

50th birthday party?

Yes or no?

Please leave a comment

The Politicians Don’t Care What You Think

The Politicians Don’t Care What You Think

By JFarrell

 

“Let me tell you what the issues are….”

“That’s not the real question….”

“Our polling shows…..”

Trust me, they ain’t listening.

 

I walked in to the office yesterday, Lib Dem party;

I had one question

“How can I trust your party with my vote?”

And she quoted policy at me.

I told her, that doesn’t answer my question

And she quoted more policy at me.

 

I wanted to volunteer, to help,

I have a duty to, a responsibility;

I had one question;

They would not listen to

Could not listen to

Could not answer.

 

Maybe, it’s the training,

Maybe, it’s the environment;

I don’t know.

 

She looked at me

And did not see a person;

Could not even show me the basic respect

Of listening to my question.

 

And they are all like this.

 

From their ivory towers

They look down upon us

And, as long as we continue to vote for them,

They are not going to listen.

Why should they?

After all, they think they are better than us.

 

Well, they ain’t better than me.

Stuff em!

The Transition

As I look into your eyes
I no longer see a man who despises
But someone who realizes that as a people we can rise
A man who realize that our lives and his children’s lives can be better if we all strive…..
There are challenges ahead
Changes we may dread
But it is no more than what our grandparents have seen
No more than the streams of blood our ancestors bleed…

Martin Luther King had a dream
And though he died
His children have seen
That it was not just his dream
But the dream of America
Red, yellow, white, black and green

So the voices of the majority has been heard
And as you glance into the mirror
You too see the transition that has occurred.

God Bless the United States of America!!!!
