flowers on wednesday...

let's have our flowers today instead of waiting

I need something pretty
we all need something pretty

life is getting incomprehensible and very very scary
police in the streets in RIOT gear
when there are NO riots
images going out into the world of peaceful people
sleeping or sitting quietly
dragged and hit and bloodied
 it isn't in some far off country where we can say
oh well that's there and that's what THEY do

it's here
just up the road
from all of us
people with rights
people given the power to speak freely
and the right to protest in a nonviolent way and to assemble
and we see what happens when they do just that
it isn't right
it shouldn't be happening
but it is and nothing seems will stop it

but once again let's pay attention to the man with all the girlfriends and sleazy ways and greasy pizza
let's give him all the time he needs to gross us out

let's hear one more time about the fame hoar's and the people with no education and way  too much money
people who don't deserve a minute of attention

and let's ignore those trying to make a change and improve
and educate
let's just ignore them
and spend time on the child molesters who were ignored coz god forbid the football team suffers and the "brand" too

and now...
which is what set me off ladies and gentleman
...let's listen to the radio
now beginning to play Christmas songs
and all the other songs
and then in between
Adele and
Silver bells
John Lennon and
 Jingle bells
lets' listen to a song
with words
like this

Robert's got a quick hand.

He'll look around the room, he won't tell you his plan.

He's got a rolled cigarette, hanging out his mouth he's a cowboy kid.
Yeah, he found a six shooter gun.
In his dad's closet hidden in a box of fun things, and I don't even know what.
But he's coming for you, yeah he's coming for you.
All the other kids with the pumped up kicks you'd better run, baby run, outrun my gun.
All the other kids with the pumped up kicks you'd better run, baby run, faster than my bullet.

pumped up kicks are shoes apparently
it's a song about school shootings
you know the happy stuff of life
and it's having the hell played out of it
so wrong on so many levels

what's the symbol for
 head shaking


this is what I was doing when the
---- hit the fan and I put pen to paper
so to speak
holly leaves and berries
I found the one above in a drawer
and sort of
back engineered

to make this
in a different colour
and the
berries too

sometime recently
I saw a bush with purple berries on it
so I made a leaf and some berries

shame all the rest couldn't be as cute
see it's best to leave real life out
and just pretend that all we do is the hooky stuff
I hope it isn't ....

have a good
time of the day

Ever since I first heard that song, I thought it was really stupid. I immediately turn the station when it comes on. I didn't understand what it was about but heard some of the words one day and thought it just didn't make sense at all. Most folks don't realize what they are listening to consciously but those lyrics stick in their subconscious and bad things result. I haven't been watching the news so don't really know what is going on. Ironically, we help people of other countries topple their own governments, but our own people aren't allowed to peacefully demonstrate. Hypocritical, definitely. Your holly leaves and berries are wonderful. Hope your day is a good one. Tammy
