No TEARS ~

If there are no tears in your eyes, your ducts have dried – or your Heart has stopped!

THE DIVINE FEMININE! Even the cat stopped eating, and the birds stopped singing!

Parting is such

Sweet sorrow

That I shall say Goodnight

Till it be morrow

William Shakespeare

Warning ⚠️ to said blogger

If, one day you find my flying to Venus

From your presence Dear

Remember time and space are only an illusion

Tipping around the house my sweet watch out for the feather duster

Story ~

Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;
And reigns the winter’s pregnant silence still;
No sign of spring, save that the catkins fill,
And willow stems grow daily red and bright.
These are days when ancients held a rite
Of expiation for the old year’s ill,
And prayer to purify the new year’s will:
Fit days, ere yet the spring rains blur the sight,
Ere yet the bounding blood grows hot with haste,
And dreaming thoughts grow heavy with a greed
The ardent summer’s joy to have and taste;
Fit days, to give to last year’s losses heed,
To recon clear the new life’s sterner need;
Fit days, for Feast of Expiation placed!

I love you too –

“SHE LOVES ME! I JUST KNOW IT!” a poem, a.k.a.: “I Love You Too!” Saturday: June 29, 2019 🙂 – It’s Supposed to be HUMOROUS! FUN! You-know! Humorous!

Everything you do – is AN ACT OF LOVE;

You-pushed-me-down-the-stairs, but-with-a-loving-shove!

Everything you say – is LOVING & quite KIND;

I-love-it-Honey-chil’ when-you-“gimme a-piece o’-your-mind,”

For, I just LOVE your mind, with-a-little-butter-and-salt,

Or I’ll blend-it-in-the-blender! for a tasty malt!

Everything you think, It-is-FOR: LOVE-OF-ME;

Your thoughts-are-just-like-daggers! Im-pal-ing-me-with-glee!

For instance, just-the-other-day I-did-another-[dumb]-thing,

And-LOVE-LIGHTS*-shone [right-in-your-eyes]! Such-joy-to-me-you-bring!

Every act of love you do – pushes-me-to-THE-BRINK;

I-just-KNOW-you-wanna-“test-me,” to strengthen me, I think,

Although I am a tender reed, a-wafting in The Breeze;

Whenever Thou dost blow** on me, I bend – with greatest ease!

Every single act you do, it is a LOVELY DEED;

I thank you-a-million-times-a-day! as-I-gently-bleed!***

fin <3

  • – Well, perhaps it more like FIRE! penetrating my soul! and-burning-it-to-H – eL, but

H – EL, at least it kept me warm!!!!

I love you too*** – or: as my guitar gently weeps!! 🙂

Girl of my dreams –

“GIRL OF MY DREAMS!” a poem, a.k.a.: “Love Is A Wonderful Thing!” 29 June 2019 (Saturday) in the series: “Mr. & Mrs. Cuddly Poo [Go To Cincinnati?]!”

You’re the girl for me; you’re the girl for me:

Aus’ -an’-America, we’re-filled-with-righteous-glee!

We’re “bi-lat-er-al!?” and – WE REAL-LY FIT,

Although we-have-“fits,” quite-a-bit!

We’re-so-well-suited and filled-with-mirth;

I know I’ve loved you, from my birth!?!

And, I-know, wherever – on this Earth,

From Cincinnati – to Dear, Ol’ Perth,

I’ll always miss your charms and face,

And-I’m-glad-when-you-miss-me – with your mace,

Because it means – I-can-kiss-you sooner,

‘Cause, if-you-get-my-face, it’s-a real “burner,”

And my facial skin – swells up real good,

But – I-ADORE-YOU-adore-you – like nobody-could!

WELL, I-DO! I-DO! I-DO-do-do, Poo!

That’s-right! [as-always-or-usual!]

I’m – “crazy-[in]-love-with-you!”

Gay and Free –

“THE DEVA’S STRING CHEESE STRUT!” a poem a.k.a.: “Lots-A Mozza – rella!” [a poem within a poem or something like that] June 29, 2019 (Saturday)

Gay – and Free – and Full of Color, the girl, she-eats string cheese,*

With tattoo marks – and bouncy step, The Men fall – to their knees!

Her hair, SO BLOND[E] [it]-outshines-The-Sun; NO-BLUE-TINT for THIS season,

Just blond – and sleek (Let’s-take-a-peek!) So-straight! Don’t-ask-the-reason!

For angels walk – so-upright – so-their-heads-are-close[r]-to”God,”

Who peers from Heaven licentiously drooling-o’er-her-bod!

SO, WITH COLOR! POSTURE! STRIDE-OF-STEP! our-heroine-in-forms,

All the townsfolk in this berg, “She-need-not-wear-plat-forms,”

To tower over everyone; her aura’s 10 feet high,

And, as she passes, passersby – THEY-OB-VIOUS-LY-SIGH!

They say: “Oh, my! (pause) Now, WHAT’S-THAT which-ventures in-These-Parts?”

“‘Tis only me!” she-says-with glee; “A Deva of The Arts!”

Lament of the cross dresser ~

“LAMENT OF THE LINGERIE JUNKIE!” a poem, a.k.a.: “I Wrote This Last Night!” written for Saturday (6/29/19) It’s SUPPOSED to be HUMOROUS! OK? Ha, ha, OK?!

Honey, you’ll get this – when you awaken!

I pray -you’ll NOT be too badly shaken,

But I CLEANED OUT YOUR CLOSET! Most of it I’ve taken:

Lingerie! S – x toys and the-underwear-you-soaked-in-bacon!

(So, with toys, undergarments – some REAL lace-y things,

Our hero – [has] escaped – to a deserted island, on Angel Wings,

Or, actually, on “the wings”-of-countless-Victoria’s-Secret model girls,

Loving – the-smells! touch-of-the-fabric! and! various-hidden, unshorn hairs!)

When – IN THE MORNING, she got his note-in-a-jar,

He was with “the one[s] he loved – Yes! He-was SO FAR,

“[I’m] AWAY! from ‘civilization,’ my ‘lovlies’ and me [now] be,

That I will forget all of ‘my former life,’ for I WILL! rap-tur-ous-ly,

Be kissing, fondling and smelling all her [your] stuff;

I won’t be denied! I can’t get enough!”

[That’s right! – 🙂 🙂 – Time passes!]

A MESSAGE IN A BOTTLE – DRIFTED UP ON THE BEACH TODAY:

(It arrived from a deserted island, far, far away!)

“I made a mistake!? How could I NOT have known,

The glorious smell-and-allure-have-faded, and I-have-no-phone,

To-call someone to-come-get-me!-I’m-in-an-awful-mess!

I’m-now-marooned-here, with ‘scentless undies’ – and a strapless dress!

THEY SNAP AT ME and expect-me-to,

Wash-and-iron-them! Yes, I keep them clean, I do,

BUT! I miss your voice! your touch! and – stare,

The way you gently – combed your hair!

(Moral): LIFELESS THINGS – CAN NOT REPLACE,

Your [HER] [HIS?] cheeky style – and beautiful face,

And, I guess, I forgot! The aroma – and smells,

Are-from-your-ever-molting, regenerative-skin, skin cells,

Which secrete and re-new – your sweet, natural per-fume,

(And, of course, I miss your “boum, boum, boum!”

Oh, well! Maybe “another life”* will find me wiser,

Than to-escape to-a-desert-island! as a lingerie miser!**)

Wise words of wisdom. I meet a grown-up man once who never lost the child inside Sir. The sweetest journey of all time ❤️ life’s a journey – the child inside is always there, so why do folk forget? Society norms (?) shape our minds stamped with doctrines of judgements, opinions on how to act as adults. Oh, my goodness, how inadequate we are as so stamped as adults. The wonder as a child is forgotten, also considered as inappropriate as your precious time dissolves from all these preconditioned notions of timelines one “ should be”
Life is simple, be the best version of you. True Peace and health, plus the child inside ourselves are still there. Dance in the rain hugs trees and kiss the sky. May all your moments point your toes skyward. Laugh on your back and watch the stars. You are living the dream. Kindness is free to sprinkle it wherever you need to go safely and stylishly over the oceans. Then you may say ”I have lived” cause nobody get out of life ”alive” 😁

Romance, who loves to nod and sing

With drowsy head and folded wing

Among the green leaves as they

shake

Far down within some shadowy lake,

To me a painted paroquetHath been—most familiar bird—Taught me my alphabet to say

To lisp my very earliest word

While in the wild wood I did lie,

A child—with a most knowing eye.

Of late, eternal condor years

So shake the very Heaven on high

With tumult as they thunder by,

I have no time for idle cares

Through gazing on the unquiet sky;

And when an hour with calmer wingsIts down upon my spirit flings,

That little time with lyre and rhymeTo while away—forbidden things—My heart would feel to be a crimeUnless it trembled with the strings.

“MAN SENTENCED IN BIZARRE CASE OF DRUG SMUGGLING!” a poem.

“MAN SENTENCED IN BIZARRE CASE OF DRUG SMUGGLING!” a poem. MONDAY: 

“J-Jay-S-D-Poet & Mystic-kind-o’-Guy,  Was-Indicted Just Today!” and-it’s-no-bloody-lie!

‘Cause, after-he-was-convicted! They “operated” on him!  They cut his body open!! Despite the pleas of MMm!*

They cut his “yacht” right open, (pause) with some power tools,  To find out what-he-was-smugglin’ – “We ain’t no bloody fools!”

Said Chancellor Phillipino, a darkened magistrate!

Who-also-said: “He-MUST- be ‘carrying,’ or-he wouldn’t feel so great!”

So the surgeons went right in there, for to remove “The Haul,”

 But, when they reached right in there, the drugs let out a call:

“You can NOT apprehend us; we’re-endorphins, yes we are!

And-with serotonin, dopamine – and oxy,** we’ll go far,

‘Cause we’re the LOVING CHEMICALS, and YES! J-Jay’s our host!

 In other times with other folks, we-were-called THE HOLY GHOST!

‘Cause we got LOVE inside us! And J’s got quite a lot,

Even though he doesn’t drink – or smoke no bloody pot!

He’s just-a loaded with us, ’cause He’s in LOVE, you see!

 And IF you-all will ever, (pause) FALL IN LOVE 

You-can-also-be-a-SMUGGLER, and float your blessed YACHT,

And find yourselves convicted – but WE’LL NEVER quite be CAUGHT!

For you can TRY to duplicate – our clever-chemical-schemes,

 Yet, we are ALSO spiritual, IF you know just what that means!

It means, your clever scientists and chemists (will) always lose,

To make synthetic substitutes – for us – we’re just like booze!

Who-knows-WHY – these things occur! No-one will ever know!”

AND SO! They sewed J-Jay back up! And let the poet go! 🙂 – Yay!

Perhaps!! Adolf (pause) The Monster! was not so bad,

But! He liked to write! and MAYBE others,

Killed a bunch of dads and mothers,

Then said: “HE did it! ‘Cause he’s in charge!”

And WE KNOW Charlie (Manson) – was not very large,

But! He-liked-to-talk-BIG – and, perhaps, incite,

Folks to party! All through the night!

Point-is: WE OFTEN POINT OUR FINGERS,

At OTHERS! When it’s clear – that OUR stench – lingers,

And WE WON’T ACCEPT THE CRUELTY,

THAT-RESIDES-IN-US, so we like to see,

It in others – and condemn – THAT OTHER!

JUDGMENT! What-a-joke! Listen-now, Brother –

And Sister: (pause) YOUR TIME – MAY-BE – too-MUCH-SPENT,

Often! Letting off – YOUR NOXIOUS VENT,

Without much “info” and without much thought!

We Humans! Conclusions, we’ll jump to – a lot!

You MAY not do it – and you might “poo-poo,”

J Jay’s poem – as not so true,

But! IT SEEMS TV CAN SHED SOME LIGHT,

On ALL THIS JUDGMENT – on “wrong” & “right,”

For one person’s savior – is another one’s foe;

    • “Mein Kampf” Here is an example of a quotation from this oft maligned book: “The frailest woman will become an heroine when the life of her own child is at stake!” (Isn’t that terrible! Yet we are told to avoid reading such literature ALL TOGETHER – and study “War & Peace,” by Leo Tolstoy – because this Russian religious “Titan” was considered by many theologians years later to support their political positions!) I am NOT saying Hitler was “a saint” or even suggesting that anyone read “Mein Kampf;” I am MERELY SUGGESTING that we are fed A LOT OF PRECONCEIVED NOTIONS about a lot of things and convinced that we should never question such sustenance! Rubbish! Believe what you will, ASSUMING you can “get past” the conditioning of “the past!”

  • FEMINISM~

    Feminism


    Michel FoucaultPoststructuralism and contemporary feminism have emerged as two of the most influential political and cultural movements of the late twentieth century. The recent alliance between them has been marked by an especially lively engagement with the work of French philosopher Michel Foucault. Although Foucault makes few references to women or to the issue of gender in his writings, his treatment of the relations between power, the body and sexuality has stimulated extensive feminist interest. Foucault’s idea that the body and sexuality are cultural constructs rather than natural phenomena has made a significant contribution to the feminist critique of essentialism. While feminists have found Foucault’s analysis of the relations between power and the body illuminating, they have also drawn attention to its limitations. From the perspective of a feminist politics that aims to promote women’s autonomy, the tendency of a Foucauldian account of power to reduce social agents to docile bodies seems problematic. Although many feminist theorists remain critical of Foucault’s questioning of the categories of the subject and agency on the grounds that such questioning undermines the emancipatory aims of feminism, others have argued that in his late work he develops a more robust account of subjectivity and resistance which, while not without its problems from a feminist perspective, nevertheless has a lot to offer a feminist politics. The affinities and tensions between Foucault’s thought and contemporary feminism are discussed below.

    1. Background: Foucault’s Genealogy of Power, Knowledge and the Subject

    In the works of his middle years – Discipline and Punish and The History of Sexuality, Vol. 1 – Foucault traces the emergence of some of the practices, concepts, forms of knowledge, social institutions and techniques of government which have contributed to shaping modern European culture. He calls the method of historical analysis he employs ‘genealogical’. Genealogy is a form of critical history in the sense that it attempts a diagnosis of ‘the present time, and of what we are, in this very moment’ in order ‘to question … what is postulated as self-evident … to dissipate what is familiar and accepted’ (Foucault 1988a: 265). What distinguishes genealogical analysis from traditional historiography is that it is ‘a form of history which can account for the constitution of knowledges, discourses, domains of objects etc. without having to make reference to a subject which is either transcendental in relation to the field of events or runs in its empty sameness throughout history’ (Foucault 1980: 149). Rather than assuming that the movement of history can be explained by the intentions and aims of individual actors, genealogy investigates the complex and shifting network of relations between power, knowledge and the body which produce historically specific forms of subjectivity. Foucault links his genealogical studies to a modality of social critique which he describes as a ‘critical ontology of the present’. In a late paper, he explains that an ontology of the present involves ‘an analysis of the historical limits that are imposed on us’ in order to create the space for ‘an experiment with the possibility of going beyond them’ (Foucault 1984: 50). Thus, genealogy is a form of social critique that seeks to determine possibilities for social change and ethical transformation of ourselves.

    One of the central threads of Foucault’s genealogy of the present is an analysis of the transformations in the nature and functioning of power which mark the transition to modern society. Foucault’s genealogy of modern power challenges the commonly held assumption that power is an essentially negative, repressive force that operates purely through the mechanisms of law, taboo and censorship. According to Foucault, this ‘juridico-discursive’ conception of power (Foucault 1978: 82) has its origins in the practices of power characteristic of pre-modern societies. In such societies, he claims, power was centralized and coordinated by a sovereign authority who exercised absolute control over the population through the threat or open display of violence. From the seventeenth century onwards, however, as the growth and care of populations increasingly became the primary concerns of the state, new mechanisms of power emerged which centered around the administration and management of ‘life’. In the complex story that Foucault tells, this new form of ‘bio-power’ coalesced around two poles. One pole is concerned with the efficient government of the population as a whole and focuses on the management of the life processes of the social body. It involves the regulation of phenomena such as birth, death, sickness, disease, health, sexual relations and so on. The other pole, which Foucault labels ‘disciplinary power’, targets the human body as an object to be manipulated and trained. In Discipline and Punish Foucault studies the practices of discipline and training associated with disciplinary power. He suggests that these practices were first cultivated in isolated institutional settings such as prisons, military establishments, hospitals, factories and schools but were gradually applied more broadly as techniques of social regulation and control. The key feature of disciplinary power is that it is exercised directly on the body. Disciplinary practices subject bodily activities to a process of constant surveillance and examination that enables a continuous and pervasive control of individual conduct. The aim of these practices is to simultaneously optimize the body’s capacities, skills and productivity and to foster its usefulness and docility: ‘What was then being formed was a policy of coercions that act on the body, a calculated manipulation of its elements, its gestures, its behavior. The human body was entering a machinery of power that explores it, breaks it down and rearranges it…Thus, discipline produces subjected and practiced bodies, “docile” bodies’ (Foucault 1977: 138-9). It is not, however, only the body that disciplinary techniques target. Foucault presents disciplinary power as productive of certain types of subject as well. In Discipline and Punish he describes the way in which the central technique of disciplinary power – constant surveillance – which is initially directed toward disciplining the body, takes hold of the mind as well to induce a psychological state of ‘conscious and permanent visibility’ (Foucault 1977: 201). In other words, perpetual surveillance is internalized by individuals to produce the kind of self-awareness that defines the modern subject. With the idea that modern power operates to produce the phenomena it targets Foucault challenges the juridical notion of power as law which assumes that power is simply the constraint or repression of something that is already constituted. On Foucault’s account the transition to modernity entails the replacement of the law by the norm as the primary instrument of social control. Foucault links the importance assumed by norms in modern society to the development of the human or social sciences. In the first volume of The History of Sexuality he describes how, in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, sex and sexuality became crucial political issues in a society concerned with managing and directing the life of individuals and of populations. On Foucault’s account, the spread of bio-power is intimately connected to the social science discourses on sex and sexuality which proliferated during this period. These discourses, he claims, tended to understand sex as an instinctual biological and psychic drive with deep links to identity and, thus, with potentially far-reaching effects on the sexual and social behavior of individuals. The idea that the sexual drive could function in a normal, healthy manner or could be warped and perverted into pathological forms led to a project of classification of behavior along a scale of normalization and pathologization of the sexual instinct (Dreyfus & Rabinow 1982: 173). Once the social (and sexual) science categories of normalcy and deviancy were established, various political technologies aimed at treating and reforming ‘deviant’ behavior could be sanctioned as in the interests of both the individual and society. Thus, Foucault suggests that in modern society the behavior of individuals and groups is increasingly pervasively controlled through standards of normality which are disseminated by a range of assessing, diagnostic, prognostic and normative knowledges such as criminology, medicine, psychology and psychiatry. Modern individuals, moreover, become the agents of their own ‘normalization’ to the extent that they are subjected to, and become invested in, the categories, classifications and norms propagated by scientific and administrative discourses which purport to reveal the ‘truth’ of their identities. Modern disciplinary society can, therefore, dispense with direct forms of repression and constraint because social control is achieved by means of subtler strategies of normalization, strategies which produce self-regulating, ‘normalized’ individuals. It is Foucault’s insight into the productivity of the practices and technologies characteristic of normalizing bio-power that underpins his general conclusion that power in modern societies is a fundamentally creative rather than repressive force (Foucault 1977: 194). Above all, Foucault claims that modern regimes of power operate to produce us as subjects who are both the objects and vehicles of power. He explains that: ‘The individual is not to be conceived as a sort of elementary nucleus, a primitive atom, a multiple and inert material on which power comes to fasten or against which it happens to strike, and in so doing subdues or crushes individuals. In fact, it is already one of the prime effects of power that certain bodies, certain gestures, certain discourses, certain desires, come to be identified and constituted as individuals. The individual, that is, is not the vis-à-vis of power; it is … one of its prime effects.’ (Foucault 1980: 98). Foucault’s analysis of productive bio-power points to a complex interaction between modern forms of power and knowledge: ‘the exercise of power perpetually creates knowledge and, conversely, knowledge constantly induces effects of power’ (Foucault 1980: 52). For Foucault, power can be said to create knowledge in two related senses. Firstly, in the sense that particular institutions of power make certain forms of knowledge historically possible. In the case of the social sciences, for example, it is the refinement of disciplinary techniques for observing and analyzing the body in various institutional settings that facilitates the expansion of new areas of social research. Power can also be said to create knowledge in the sense that institutions of power determine the conditions under which scientific statements come to be counted as true or false (Hacking 1986). According to Foucault, then, ‘truth is a thing of this world: it is produced only by virtue of multiple forms of constraint. And it induces regular effects of power’ (Foucault 1980: 131). This description suggests that the production of ‘truth’ is never entirely separable from technologies of power. On the other hand, Foucault maintains that knowledge induces effects of power in so far as it constitutes new objects of inquiry – ‘objects’ like ‘the delinquent’, ‘the homosexual’ or ‘the criminal type’ – which then become available for manipulation and control (Rouse 1994: 97). For example, he claims that it is the knowledge generated by the human sciences which enables modern power to circulate through finer channels, ‘gaining access to individuals themselves, to their bodies, their gestures, and all their daily actions’ (Foucault 1980: 151). It is in order to signal the mutually conditioning operations of power and knowledge that Foucault speaks of regimes of ‘power/knowledge’ or ‘discourses’; that is, structured ways of knowing and exercising power.

    THE VALUE OF SPARROWS


    Come Creator Spirit


    (to Ed McClanahan)

    Dear Ed,
    I dreamed that you and I were sent to Hell.
    The place we went to was not fiery
    or cold, was not Dante’s Hell or Milton’s,
    but was, even so, as true a Hell as any.
    It was a place unalterably public
    in which crowds of people were rushing
    in weary frenzy this way and that,
    as when classes change in a university
    or at quitting time in a city street,
    except that this place was wider far
    than we could see, and the crowd as large
    as the place. In that crowd every one
    was alone. Every one was hurrying.
    Nobody was sitting down. Nobody
    was standing around. All were rushing
    so uniformly in every direction, so
    uniformly frantic, that to average them
    would have stood them still. It was a place
    deeply disturbed. We thought, you and I,
    that we might get across and come out
    on the other side, if we stayed together,
    only if we stayed together. The other side
    would be a clear day in a place we would know.
    We joined hands and hurried along,
    snatching each other through small openings
    in the throng. But the place was full
    of dire distractions, dire satisfactions.
    We were torn apart, and I found you
    breakfasting upon a huge fried egg.
    I snatched you away: “Ed! Come on!”
    And then, still susceptible, I met
    a lady whose luster no hell could dim.
    She took all my thought. But then,
    in the midst of my delight, my fear
    returned: “Oh! Damn it all! Where’s Ed?”
    I fled, searching, and found you again.
    We went on together. How this ended
    I do not know. I woke before it could end.
    But, old friend, I want to tell you
    how fine it was, what a durable
    nucleus of joy it gave my fright
    to force that horrid way with you, how
    heavenly, let us say, in spite of Hell.

    P.S.
    Do you want to know why
    you were distracted by an egg, and I
    by a beautiful lady? That’s HEAVEN 🤪

  • “THE IMPLANT INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX!”WARNING.😌

    “THE IMPLANT INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX!” an enhanced poem(!!) a.k.a.: “Welcome To Our Little Surgical Horror Show!” a.k.a. 2: “Don’t Blame US! We’re JUST Giving YOU What You Want!!” 

    Hello! All you little bodies! [IN-all-these-cells-we-dwell!]

    We don’t KNOW What We are, and there’s no one who can tell!

    BUT! Whatever we might be, we’re in THE BODY ORGANIC,

    A zillion teeming cells – trying to be dynamic,

    Maintaining cohesion-and-structure, and The Bible quite suggests,

    That OUR CELLULAR FRAME’S MAGNIFICENT! It moves around & rests,

    And, in this day of MIRACLES! and CURES! Let’s attend THE HORROR SHOW:

    For-we-have-become-MAGNIFICENT!? We can MEND these cells, you know!?*

    Yes, Friends! It’s called: IMPROVEMENT – or ENHANCEMENT-OR-SUPPLEMENT!?

    We, as earlier stated** are-all-quite-mad! (and) have-spent,

    MILLENIA – Eye-ing IMPROVEMENT – for-our-GLORIOUS-betterment?

    So, we alter what we do-not understand, and tear-up each living “tent,”

    CASE 1: “My breasts! They need a LITTLE boost!”

    Can we stick in something EXTRA? So-in-the-feminine-we’ve-now-unloosed,

    Gel or goop with inorganic sacs,

    To infect – our precious girls – as they carry gorgeous racks!

    CASE 2: Your TEETH, Dear! ‘Cause wooden dentures – weren’t too real,

    So we’ll try metal – alloys – hard -as-nails – mercury! and steel!

    And they (certainly) WON’T leak? or deteriorate? or, if they do, NOT MUCH,

    But! How much is too much? Amalgam-tattoos-&-metal-brain-cells-as-such!

    Yet, WAIT! Try, try again! SUPER PLASTIC? Herculite?

    Looks almost real – and stays in! Well, it’s in there – real tight!

    And leaks A BIT – but – can NOT hurt,

    At-least! That’s what dentists do assert!

    The same with gold – the caps – the crowns,

    Stick ‘em in! We’re a bunch o’ clowns!

    MIX WITH SALIVA – AND JUICE AND YOU,

    And – let’s all alter – the food we chew!

    CASE 3: The mesh pads – for herniatic tissues:

    “Oh, they won’t deteriorate – you’ll have NO issues!”

    BUT! They do TOO! and so IT tells,

    WE MOLD THE-INORGANIC – WITH OUR LIVING CELLS,

    And THINK – that no reactions shall we find,

    Except (maybe) new diseases – of bodies and mind,

    And IF our health and bodies fail,

    We-applaud! Medical-procedures-we-hail,

    AND – the next improvement – from The Chemical Lab:

    We CHEER, as we whittle, on-the-health-that-we-HAD!

    Yes! WE’RE INSANE – AND THE SURGEONS OF IMPLANT,

    May read this “rubbish” and – simply rant:

    But I guess I don’t care; I’m just glad (somehow),

    That someone might link THEIR*** intentions – to Mao,****

    AND – IF I die in my sleep – from leaked out “crap,”

    Maybe what I AM – will draw you a map,

    To a NEW conditional realm (Where we’re STILL “insane”),

    But! Maybe not SO stupid – or so bloody inane! 🙂

I’LL BLOCK AND BLOCK THEM ALL AWAY!”- home based business

“The Blocking Song: WHAT SOME WILL DO!” a poem June 28, 2019 (Friday)

She blocks and blocks and stops the talks,

And blocks some more: [She-says:] “It’s such a bore,

To have to deal with folks to-day;

I’LL BLOCK AND BLOCK THEM ALL AWAY!”

And in the morning, sunlight shines,

And ALL-ARE-BLOCKED, and there are signs,

That she or he is almost GONE!

“I’m-sorry-I-blocked-you; forgive-me, John;*

Please TAKE ME BACK, or I might die;

Please, please, please – I’m gonna cry!”

[Later that same day:] “Oh, GOOD! I got a few ‘Friends’ back;

I AM a fine computer “hack!”

What’s THIS? How dare you do that NOW;

I’m gonna BLOCK – that racist cow!

I’m gonna BLOCK, ’cause-he-di’n-respec’-me;

I WILL-NOT-TOLERATE Rudeness! I’m free!”

“I’ll BLOCK-these-‘idiots,’ who-think-I’ll-not,

Block them too! GOOD-BLOCKIN’-I-GOT!

BLOCK!!!!! I-can-block – all day long;

I have composed – ‘The Blocking Song,’

For: YOU! and-YOU! and-stinky-ol’-YOU!

I’ll block you all; it’s nothing new!

I’ve-blocked your-sorry arses-be-fore;

I’ve-blocked-you-and-kicked-you OUT THE DOOR!

Oh-oh! Oh, no! What-have-I-done?

I EVEN BLOCKED – MY FAVORITE SON!

PLEASE! Somebody-help-me, help-me-for-I,

Have blocked MYSELF!” Oh! (pause) Hey-There! HI!

My Little Mouse – will-you-be-my-friend?

BUT THE MOUSE WAS SILENT, for we all tend,

To click and click – our mice – for-blocks!!!!!
