All the Leaves are Brown #californiadrought #watershortage

days of drought catch the rain in a jar each drop precious * price of admission turn fresh produce into weeds highest bidder I continue to read ridiculous reports of fights for water in California. I drive through the Central Valley and see new vineyards cropping up and the dairy industry, walnut, almond, pistachio orchards […]

The Rose and the Thorn #poetry

I am but a worm on this leaf I look upon two sides of the world she is a beauty full of life, a treasure fanning hope and peace he is a devil piercing the sky with pain injustice and anger are his middle name I am but a worm on this leaf “In matters […]

“X” – eXtinguish the flames #atozchallenge #riots

Luz last night the hellioned beast raised its ugly head  in NewCago. The gangs have unleashed their secret weapon. They circled the opportunity like a predator for months Fires are burning all over NewCago and there are just too few good people to put them out. Those who had a job have one no longer. Most […]

Too Young #terrorism #children #poetry

“Red” is in this Season #prose #socialism #photography

Apocalypse Yesterday #news #humor #poetry

“Step Right Up, Sit Right Down What we offer is for free you simply give to us your hand we take your soul and play the lottery” * the hawkers were at it again dawn til dusk it’s always the same they had to corner a billion or so before the winter’s came * people […]
