Life Is All About Perspectives   1 comment

 ‘Weed’ On the Patio — Photo-Artistry by kenne

I have subscribed to The New Yorker for years and find it helpful to see things from different perspectives; some I like, some I don’t. Many great writers, some of which I agree with, some I don’t. It’s all a matter of perspective, which is what this poem is all about — It’s only boogie-woogie.

BOOGIE-WOOGIE

You shout from the other room
You ask me how to spell boogie-woogie
And instantly I think what luck
no war has been declared
no fire has consumed
our city’s monuments
our bodies our dwellings

The fiver didn’t flood
no friends 
have been arrested
It’s only boogie-woogie
I sign relieved
and say it’s spelled just as it sounds
boogie-woogie

Thanksgiving Talk With Doomsday Just Around The Corner   2 comments

Source: The New Yorker

Large family gatherings such as Thanksgiving, brings together people with different persuasions, ideologies, and beliefs. At our gathering this year, Thanksgiving took on a special meaning for those who believe in the December 21, 2012 doomsday prophecies. This cartoon is for those who believe the world will end December 21st, and especially those who think everything needs to be privatized.  These doomsday prophecies (Cults and Mind Control) are good for business!
