I Tought I taw Tweety Twump

Trump WORLD
the place
where the
out and out lie
the bumbling rant
and the spewing
of hate
through a social media
tweet
as exemplified
by the POTUS
has become
the accepted norm
for the destructive antics
of DISCOMMUNICATION

HOLY SHIT …..

I Tought I taw Tweety Twump

peace out

blacksmith named Gabriel ~ Scars of Injustices

I’m this artist
who likes to tell a story
of words with an image
captured in time
~    today with
Smartphone in hand
I begin my
photographic journey
along the Slave Trail
in Richmond
Virginia
a somber place
representative of
cruel and hard endings
for some …..
of us human beings
hung from
the once was
hillside gallows
for instance
a 24 year old blacksmith
named Gabriel
aroused with
the spiritual vision
that in the eyes
of the creator
all people
despite color of skin
are a part of
The Human Race
equal with
every kind of
man and woman
~    however
such a righteous revelation
to evolve The Human Race
beyond the defining of race
by skin color
was put to death
due to ignorance
and ill perceived
sanctimoniousness
‘cause some
of a certain skin color
blinded by the trade
of slavery
were not yet
so enlightened
about the benevolent ways
of God Almighty
for all    ~

but to the unmindful
passerby
~    driving down
Broad Street
over a bridge
this place appears to be
a green grass
park like lawn
next to some
railroad tracks
not long ago
a paved over parking lot
~    sleepily awaiting
a full resurrection
of remembrance ….   for
all those buried there
now a parcel of land
with a shrine
known as
the Negro Burial Ground
but more ethnically
named
the African Ancestral
Burial Ground   ~

like the blacksmith
named Gabriel
this experience
emerges forth
a spiritual vision
within me
this everyday
human being
no better than anyone else
where the color of …..
a person’s skin
shines on the beauty
and rich character
of their ethnicity
and yet
in the light of    ~
equality for all
skin color does not
determine race
‘cause the human
belongs to only one race
The Human Race
if not ….
then resurrect
the Richmond gallows
and hang me on the hillside
it would be an honor
to be buried
next to my fellow
human beings
especially
that blacksmith
named Gabriel

eternally a part of the shrine
to the Scars of Injustices

peace out

HUMAN COMMUNITY STEW ~ ROUTINES

an American ethnicity ….
THEM in the know say
I ain’t got one
even though
America can be my nation
and based on genetics
the color of my skin
I have to check off
as my race …..   hmmmm ..…
whatever happened to
that identifier
THE HUMAN RACE   ~
then we would not
have to decide
if the president
of the USA
is either
black or white
or something else
’cause it would then
be up to our acts and deeds
our service to humanity
that should define us
not the daily ROUTINES
we follow according to label
like zombies
without resistance
due to the
social conditioning ~ impregnating
our minds
from the drivel
of media and advertisement
all a part of The Red ……
White
and THE BULL

as far as that
ethnicity thing
I was born and raised
in America
I’m a little pinch
of this or that
all important ingredients
added to what makes up a stew
my grandfather called COMMUNITY

WE THE PEOPLE

experiencing
this mixed up blend
of diversity
interacting physically
and cognitively
as this
HUMAN COMMUNITY STEW
with an emergent
cultural flavor
of complexity
born of
WE THE PEOPLE
living and breathing
each day
within a portion
of shared land
while still being
a part of
THE HUMAN RACE   ~
progressively learning
what freedom truly is
or is not
and too
what freedom has still
not fully become   ~
~    especially
for many
of our brothers and sisters
as to equality and rights
being a normal reality
of liberty
and that WE THE PEOPLE
represent
so much more than
ethnicity
culture
nation
and the daily ROUTINES
we follow according to label
like zombies
without resistance ….

WE THE PEOPLE are
THE WHOLE HUMAN RACE   ~
a little pinch
of this or that
all important ingredients
added to what makes up a stew
my grandfather called COMMUNITY

HUMAN COMMUNITY STEW

all types of color
and flavor
nationality
ethnicity

belief
and economic status
I say whatever

The Red … White
and The Bull ~ spewing
from the bowels
of Trump WORLD

Pinocchio-ing

someone was reported
to be lurking
in the shadows
and making noise
by a dumpster
down a poorly lit alleyway  ~
when the police arrive
the person
looks to have on
dark clothes
with a so-called
hoodie
and maybe carrying
something
in one hand  ~
a yell …..   goes out
from the police
‘put it down’
the person
suddenly turns toward
one of the officers
and is abruptly greeted
with the barrel of a gun  ~
~  startled
the person
in the hoodie
raises the object  …..

shots ring out
and lives are
forever
destroyed  …….

the news reports
police officer
shoots a mentally ill
homeless person
from a local shelter
who was holding
a moldy loaf of bread
taken from a dumpster

HOW  ~  HOW
does something
like this happen

could it be from
an isolated
social conditioning
that sows
an evasive
behavioral type
of mental weed
with the enabling
and perceptually
inhibitive roots
of predisposition
inhibition
and stereotype
where human profiling
misleadingly gets
the firm grounding
to provide an accurate
assessment …..
based on classifications
like skin color  ~
sex  ~  gender  ~  nationality
ethnicity  ~  culture  ~
belief or economic status
although …..   in reality
such labels produce
an effect knowing as
Pinocchio-ing
pure deception
which eventually  ~
becomes exposed
only to be in the end
a pack of lies
after coloring perception
as to what’s
really transpiring
at any given moment ….

for instance
if someone was reported
to be lurking
in the shadows
and making noise
by a dumpster
down a poorly lit alleyway
when the police arrive
the person
looks to have on
dark clothes
with a so-called
hoodie
and maybe carrying
something
in one hand  ~

peace out

America’s Favorite Game ….. The Race Card

AMERICA
its all about
red ….  white
and blue
the colors of
Old Glory
a symbol for  ~
land of
the free  …..
where
We the people
are afforded the liberty
~   get to choose
who we want
to be
and what we
want to do
freedom
equality
and justice for all
is the ideology
spoken in America
since independence

supposedly

however
in reality
AMERICA today
in its EXTREMIST ATTIRE
is more like
The Red …..  White
and THE BULL
~   unadulterated
BULLSHIT
the land of
predestination
where
We the people
are separated
at birth
and given
different LABELS
then through
social/political
pressure
that flows
with the tainted blood
of inherent
predisposition
inhibition
and stereotype
within the grip
of its
devilish fervor
it prods us
to play
America’s favorite
game …..  called
THE RACE CARD
wherein  ~
and thus
we are
bamboozled
to think
we’re divinely
foreordained
to live out the hand
we are dealt ……
this unholy game
blinds
AMERICA
under the shadow
of Old Glory
to its
actually being
The Red ….. White
and THE BULL
~  unadulterated
BULLSHIT
the land of
predestination
and from
clearly perceiving
that ALL
We the people
of the planet earth
regardless of
skin color
sex
gender
nationality
ethnicity
culture
belief
or economic status
that WE
together
as ONE
are ALL
better off
and our chances
for survival
in the future
are greater
by realizing
then
progressing
intelligently
to become
a part of …..

the One and Only Race
THE HUMAN RACE

ALL We the people
as INDIVIDUALS
are afforded
the liberty
to choose
and to have
the freedom
equality
and justice
that’s for all

peace out

KKKLOWN TRUMPENSTEIN

NOT MY PRESIDENT
this
Trumpenstein

who looks and acts
like a brought back
from the dead
misassembled
recreation of
Dr. Frankenstein
theatrically staged
publicly performing
as a supremacist  ~
racist ~
fascist ~
business savvy
super wealthy
sexual predator
and misogynist
KKKLOWN
often visibly appearing
unstable
and insincerely propounding
a small handed
TRUMPent blaring
art form
of politically scripted
rhetoric
that smells of
personal insecurity

how can
such an unstable
insecure  ~
supremacist ~
racist ~
fascist ~
sexual predator
and misogynist
KKKLOWN
become a SYMBOL
of DEMOCRACY
in the Land of
the Free
where its Constitution
affords liberty ~
equality
and justice for all

the WHITE DENIAL of Supremacy
in America
a White Supremacist
predisposition
laced with inhibition
that helps breed
generation after generation
before and since
the founding of a nation
with an infectious dis-ease
that feeds societal ills
and brings back
a prehistoric
way of acting
from the dead
again and again
a misassembled
recreation of
Dr. Frankenstein
filled with racial division
bigotry and hatred

NOT MY PRESIDENT

The Big Tea Party with a Cabinet Full of Ass-Wipes

a big  ~ gushing
loathsome
kind of
social movement
discharged straight
from the bowels
of prejudice
directed toward
all those
not thought
to hold
an elevated status
in the eyes of God
or have a similar
way of belief
a narrow-minded
resistance
that craps out
an idealogical
waist product
built on falsehood
against
a more progressive
humanity
steeped to
a tea like brew
sipped by adherents
under the guise
of inspiring
Political Party
from a proverbial
Boston style cup
with a distinct
aroma
of liberty
but only
for the chosen few
and potent
with the drug of
social dis-ease
its addicting
ingredients of
predisposition
inhibition
and stereotype
a recruitment process
that has overflowed
the societal toilet
of fear based racism
a plugged
porcelain bowel
filled with Ass-Wipes
taken from
the bathroom
cabinet of
brainwashed
fascists/supremacists
who are no longer
cognizant
or supportive of
the humane spirit
that envisions
the wisdom
and benefit
to afford
We the people
of planet earth
the liberty of
freedom ~ equality
and justice for ALL

peace out
