Once upon a fall evening


Now is the time of fear

The kind that is incessant
Shooting off their mouths and puffing up
The kind that has the political
Talkin all two faced and corrupt

The kind that has the timid
Thinking there's always room for compromise
And that if one says maybe could be and probably
Enough...maybe it isn't a lie

The kind that pretends if you walk away
And take a while to come back
Everybody has to act like you never
Betrayed them or stabbed them in the back

9:52 am



I hope and pray

That the worst part of Hell
Is reserved for those who went along
Who minimized it and triviliazed it
As the demons coaxed their songs

Out of the blood curdling crys
And low sobbing moans
Of the aching and the suffering
Of those who were made to feel alone

Because the gutless and the shallow
Chose convenience over responsibility
And comfort was drawn from numbess
While shunning those

Who would but seek to truthfully see

10:18 pm



What again is it

That makes them not hear
When the volume and the content
Were indeed spoken clear

Like a woman isn't using you
If she's cold as ice
And a whore isn't a whore
As long as you pay her price

And an idiot isn't an idiot
As long as they can make you agree
And man oh man don't they lose it
If you tell them truthfully

What you see

10:55 pm

If you don't know it in your heart

The chances are you never will
Freedom comes at a cost
There is no such thing as a victory
That in some way does not include loss

What was payed before
What was given to you
For our freedom and our future
What is it you would do

We must answer to ourselves
We must look within our souls
The world is not merely something
That happens to us as it unfolds

We make our own choices
We decide our own path of action
Not every thing is a negotiation
Not every thing is a bargained transaction

Right is Right
And wrong is wrong
If we only sang what everybody liked
There would be no such thing as song

In this era of compromise and lies
In this era of if ands and buts
I still believe in courage
I still believe in fortitude and guts

If maybe and.....What's it about

If maybe and
What's it about

If it's not how many years
You've been here
Maybe it's about
Who you know

If it isn't
About that
Maybe it's who can
Make your bank account grow

If it's not about
Who's Mayor
Maybe it's about

Then who is it who chooses who
To do the time


If it isn't about
Who's your daddy
Maybe it's about
The family name

Maybe you're the agreed to target
So everybody else can hide their shame

I thought people only lied

Because they made a mistake
Because they were trapped
I didn't know people actually
Enjoyed making up crap

I thought people only lied

To keep out of trouble
To get away from something bad
I didn't know people actually
Enjoyed being a callous cad

I thought people only lied

Till they found out how the truth
Is better for everybody along the way
I didn't know people actually
Abused and used it to get their way

I thought people only lied

Because they were trapped and hurt
And had lost their way
I didn't know people actually
Enjoyed being sadistic every day

I thought people only lied
To get away from the bad guys gig
I didn't know they actually
Got off on being cruel malicious pigs

How far

Border Guards finally let out of prison
LaCrosse team not hung out on the word of a whore

Haditha Marines found not guilty....

Army Col found not guilty of assault for firing over a
Jihadist's head to get info to keep his men safe

Seals found not guilty


How far

That's how far we've had to try
That's how hard we've had to work
Just to not get taken down
Wrongly convicted by these jerks

Have no false illusions
Make no mistake
Your freedom guns and property
Your very life they'll take

How do people lower themselves

I appreciate your bravery. I weary of the world's pettiness and of those who engage in the attempts at personal destruction rather than an honest debate. The spector of gossip spurred on by motives of arrogance and audacity are eating away at the heart of human endeavor. I see you make your efforts. I see others who openly try to address wrongs, rights and solutions. Humbly do I bear witness.

How do people lower themselves
To where they have no sense of shame
No sense of accountability or responsibility
And actually pride themselves on shifting blame

The lust for temporal shallow power
Can cast a shadow upon the soul
And it is indeed an ugly thing
When the only answer is

More and more control

It leaves no room for honor
When fear is used to rule the day
When kindness is seen as weakness
And there is no sense of fair play

How do people lower themselves
To being lead around by the nose
By those who charm you to disarm you
But still remain decency's foes

They are practiced at false smiles
They relish their deliberate manipulations
They are the snakes in the garden
Coiling about filled with self justifications

Hiding behind the undeniably tragic
Hiding behind the unquestionably good
At sometime must be understood

As being motivated by fear
The kind that has you frozen in place
Or anxiously moving busily about
While puting on a constantly happy

Brave fake face

A smoke screen is a smoke screen
A disguise is a disguise
A challenge is a challenge
And must be met with open eyes
