William Marr Jul 4

he won
yet he is not satisfied
all the cheering and hailing came from the living
but few, if any,  from the dead

so he vows to investigate
how many dead people are really dead
and how many living people pretend to be living

Paul Butters Jun 14

Before the UK Election
Those Tory Trolls slagged off
The Labour Leader
Jeremy Corbyn
Unmercifully –
Dredging up his distant past,
Turning his heroic quest for Peace in Northern Ireland
Into an act of alleged “treason”
And much more.
They painted a grim grey scene.

But like King Arthur and his gallant knights,
Corbyn unsheathed his own Excalibur:
That mighty thing called “Hope”.
He offered us all a brighter future,
Except perhaps for the greedy rich,
To sweep through the enemy ranks
Upon his horse, “Momentum”.
Once more to the breach…

And as the opinion polls swing
More and more in his favour,
Victory for Labour
Is only a matter of time.

The aftermath of the UK Election.
Sam Anthony Jun 14

Is it better to get more money? Let’s say that it is.
It is better to get more money.

Is it better – for the poor – if everyone gets more money, even if that increases inequality?
Well.
The right – who think they are Right – say:

Yes. Disproportionately rewarding the wealthy with wealth creates wealth and quality of life, which the poor can now afford.

The left – who think they are Right – say:

No. Disproportionately rewarding the wealthy with wealth creates wealth and quality of life, which only the wealthy can afford.

So who is Right?
Well.
Let’s answer that question with two more questions:

What does “quality of life” mean?
Is it better to get more money?

Can we rewind to yesterday,
And stay
In the beautiful ignorance
Of this reality?

HILLARY HAS SPOKEN OUT ON
THE ELECTION SHE HAD LOST
NOW SHE LOOKS BACK WITH
TIME TO COUNT THE COST


HILLARY MAY OF WON AND BE
MADAM PRESIDENT TODAY
BUT WITH ALL THE INTERFERENCE
SHE IS NOW ON HER WAY


NOW DONALD TRUMP IS PRESIDENT
AND WE WILL NEVER KNOW
FOR IF HILLARY WAS PRESIDENT SHE
WOULD GIVE IT A DAM GOOD GO

HILLARY CLINTON HAS SPOKEN OUT ON HER LOST OPPORTUNITY TO BE MADAM PRESIDENT.

If we keep walking the same old way.
Not facing the future as we walk away.

In to a past that becomes the next day.
Following the path of a
Sunless may.

The sky will start turning a dangerous grey.
Bringing on storms to wash the many away.

I'll bring a question for your ears to touch.
How could you trust the
I's of much?

We can't move forward
By suppressing the Truth.
Sure,
Most of us want a better world.
Most of us  want a better society,
But we aren't gonna' move forward,
By denying anyone's reality.
In 2016,
Donald Trump
Was the "Boogie Man" for many people,
But,
Yet,
He won the Presidency.
It's because the Democrats didn't form
An Authentic Community
Or an Authentic Social Movement.
They demonized the other side,
But weren't completely honest
With one another.
Hillary Clinton's campaign
Relied too much
On Fear.
