Tailor Made (A Poem)

A Poem Banner

I left my frisbee in your bushes, I’ll be back another time
I’ve been cruising somewhere near the Saratoga line
From my understanding, you’ll be doing fine
And I’ll always have my hometown memories in my mind

Pretty sure you had a big bash, I could see it from the sky
For just a little girl I’m not sure I understand why
You’re going to need an entourage, everywhere you go!
I dropped everything you know!

You haven’t exactly been accessible
And your appetite’s insatiable
Your mansion is historical
But you are still untouchable

Tailor made, I’ll call your bluff! Continue reading “Tailor Made (A Poem)”

College Kids Need A Hobby (Or, Boy, Does America Like Its Guns!)

just words

(Fairfax, VA) The US Census Bureau announced impressionable young people are available in greater numbers than usual. Many failed to show up for a recent march on the headquarters of the National Rifle Association (NRA) in Fairfax Saturday afternoon.

These young people, who probably learned in school that they should get involved in important causes, apparently didn’t get their invitations, or weren’t certain what they were supposed to do at the NRA rally. Regardless, there’s more of them available, looking for a cause, so if you have old people that need meals delivered to them, work done around their houses or yard work, those are just some ideas. These kids are able-bodied and ready to go. They need a cause!

Some of them will do whatever you tell them to. In case you need a window broken, for example, some of them are good at that!

When I was younger, it was easier to find a cause. The shooters would set up in a tower right in the middle of a college campus. Continue reading “College Kids Need A Hobby (Or, Boy, Does America Like Its Guns!)”

Good New Article

just words

I’ve learned something about troubled young people. I spend more time these days on Quora, where I have an established audience for my mental health preachings. Before I speak in layman’s-statistics-style, I’ll be general.

Quora is a place anyone can ask a question, and anyone, showing their credentials, can answer. I spend time in the mental health section trying to help people. I’m 56, well experienced and self published, and I find it gratifying thinking I might help someone.

Quora, though, isn’t a cross section of young people, even though there are a lot of Continue reading “Good New Article”

Facebook’s Slow Death, and “YouEntertainment!”

THE FACEBOOK GUY

My friend got a call the other day. The guy said “Hi, I’m from Facebook, the advertising department.”
My friend was watching TV, but was intrigued, he said, so he muted the TV.

“Listen,” the Facebook guy said, “there’s a guy in Fredericton Maryland, named Jimmy Johnson … Jimmy needs you to look at his thing.”

“What?” my friend said … Continue reading “Facebook’s Slow Death, and “YouEntertainment!””

Cigarettes, Bipolar and Hunger Theory

just words

Cigarettes are clearly a hunger-related addiction, just like chocolate, coffee, sugar and salt. While this may sound, in the true style of addiction, like not a very big deal, messing with your “hunger system” is a big reason cigarettes earn the top of addiction’s totem pole.

The mind-bend doesn’t stop there, by far. The 4000 additives in cigarettes include Carbon Monoxide, Ammonia, Arsenic and Formaldehyde, and studies have shown smoking doubles your risk of depression. Continue reading “Cigarettes, Bipolar and Hunger Theory”
