News Ticker


Won’t read about it
in no AMA Journal. No cure on WEBMd.
Symptoms have you feeling a bit light headed,
short of breath toward the end of the month.

Feeling so low you’d have to reach up to tie your shoes.
So small you could sit on a dime and swing yours legs.
Feeling dizzy trying to keep pace with the Jones’.
And the Jones’ are on life support
trying to keep ahead a you.
New ride in the driveway
when you know you should be taking the bus.
Trying hard to keep your head above water.
Can’t afford a life jacket much less a canoe.
President says he’s got a new economic stimulus package
You just hope you can pay off one of them bills that’s due.
Got that sickness for which they’ve found no vaccine.
Nothing to cure what’s ailing you.
Got that new strain of virus called affluenza.
Lord don’t know what you gonna do.
Good Monday Morning Family,
Hope all is well and that the fever ain’t got you too down.

A child of the 60's I often feel out of place in the world as it exist today. Too much excess, too much materialism, too few people who genuinely care or give a damn. It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye. Antoine de Saint-Exupery

  1. Brilliant, my man, brilliant.  Makes one laugh and cry at the same time.  Peace.


      No fever here… I hope you are well? Thanks for visiting me in my brand new place in blog land.


  3. hmmmmmm…….."Lord don’t know what you gonna do"?
    Exercise the cure,
    Trim the fat,
    Stopping strutting around playing fat cat
    Take your focus of the "this" and "that"
    Material things ain’t gonna get the creditors of your back
    Take a good whiff of the reality and tighten your belt straps
    Shed the pretense and affliction
    Rid yourself of decaying addiction
    By sucking on the oxygen of authenticity
    And daring to have the courage to live your reality
    Take a walk on the wild side of REAL


  4. Damn sister girl,
    I couldn’t  have said it any better myself.
    Nice add to the piece,
