let our government fix all of your problems for you, because it can if you believe it can, believe, you pay for it

“Minnesota has a progressive income tax with rates that are among the highest in the nation. Property and sales taxes are also above average.” –smartasset.com

i want more officials voted into office who want me to do better for me by me, through hard work.
that said, bigger things dont
necessarily mean better things, plainly.

my mom says dont help.

(i dont want to be labeled or seen as unusable–i have hands, feet, & a head, like most.)

more bloat, more unhinged, more confusion, thanks Chuck Todd… And CNN… Their ads…  
my television and your Facebook tells us so.  gives me something to fear about today.

QUICK look over there:
more taxes, more need for unnecessary, IT’S necessary–we make it so, so…

but come November forget what we charge you to be in charge of you and remember to vote to look good not feel good.

(i think i can do anything, or most things, when i think i can do those things.  irregardless of production or support. )

still throwing money at something
without a plan is still throwing money
at something without a plan still: blue solutions = bigger institutions.

when you fail to plan, you plan to fail, so many have said.

i want local politicians to stop talking
and stop taxing and stop spending on special interest and change
the size of the potholes on my Midway block,
change the size of my American made pockets and pocketbook to bigger, and less empty.

(i have a goal and lists and chores that could use it. :))

yet many worry about how someone in a white house might do something that the media says is such and such and that is not good, you must obey that thought and act on it without question…  but it probably wont happen. very unsure..

you know the guy down the street in charge of the town wants to have you pay him more money, right?  his buddies up the way want to gather more bucks from you to give as gifts in their honor to their voters to keep them in charge…  you pay for that probably.

tho maybe your tax dollar flies overseas
for things you dont believe.
tho maybe those taking have unknown friends
with no sight of the end. IDK.

could use space, could us paper with faces on it as well to better my community, my yard, my rental, my commitment, my family, my potholes–like the ones i give you.

i want to change my life for better every day–i try,
with every dollar of my time it takes, then those
around me will be better themselves too,
with their time the same. just good old fashion trial and error.

i have a plan.  plans…
capitalist for hours and minutes, optimizing my abilities and resources.
even if one is anger or disdain or confusion.

could drag just about anyone and their name through the mud.
that’s easy. thoughts of what was.

and usually when i ask for handouts it’s into a mirror with silent facial expressions,
usually i can find crumbs, water, and hope.

usually when i ask for handouts i dont ask, i ask but it’s remote.

we all know nothing except for that

dusted shades cut the coming light like warm butter,
at the inside hard wooden floor
shadows of imagined exotic and warm,
where rental plants went fastly and
turned terminal in our Saturday’s hue,
in the camera slant, above the golden lamp…
did that rhyme enough for you?
i think i am worried about space debris.
i feel it again, undiscern…
and question everything as everything should be, like:
where are the lunar rovers on earth’s cameras, now?
where are the gods in tragedies, how could they allow?
where are the other sides being told under microscopes amid ads?
deep reflection then a Snapchat to friends
and family who i wish were closer in outer space
and inside with me because of the cold
outside, that is here in April…
what do we call it again… what do we say today… ?
i think they changed it from global warming
to climate change yesterday in below average temps, to
work with our subjective weather model,
so the Narrative can stay the same when it bleeps on the network.
by the negative assertions and constant commercials…
that is why i love modern literary criticism
and the scientific method.
i know nothing, as we all do and i know that.
but you might need this pill to smile.
perhaps something is wrong with you and you can’t tell yet.

Noble Inquiry

Gatorade and Smokes,
MH-17 and Jokes;
People die,
Rebels lie,
And this concept seems remote.

Just ask CNN my friend.
you know they know, you know.
Stateside,
Lounging poolside,
Just hoping these floaties float.

Peace is always an option,
I think about this as I laze in the sun.
Long day
Hot ways
Realize the damage that’s been done

: Sunburn.

***

Revelation: Gatorade is for athletes and alcoholics.
Noble Inquiry: How many atheists fight in religious wars?

America The War Corporation; Syria

America, as a government entity, is a corporation for capitalism-considered as an individual-a person, with all of the civil rights and privileges we citizens have been afforded.

Then if this individual sits trillions of dollars in debt, why are they allowed to pursue wars in other lands?

Should they not fix what is at home?  Own up to what they owe, for the better of society as a whole, for the better of the land?

Abandoning the poor, hungry, and diseased here, as they increase military strikes and spending by the year.

 

Killing our sons, daughters, and sense of pride, all in time.

 

Logic, hope, and decency are lost.

 

Measure the cost.

….  However, but not by all,

 

We can think of ways to change, but unlike our country we won’t act in haste.

 

Patience we wait.

 

Not standing idly by as fighter jets tear through the skies.

 

With sharp eyes, and even sharper tongues.

 

On Labor Day we reflect, have those in charge been laborious, or just increasing the debt?

 

History is written for thinkers and historians, lest we forget.

 

Politicians seem to overlook the past.

 

This person is American Government.

Stop this person.

 

They overlook their acts as if it hasn’t been as tragic as the last.

America needs to move forward for America.

Completely Consumed/The Human Problem

Your choice matters.

One day at a time-every moment counts.

You will know at a point.

 

It will be a sharp pain.

Like the first time you put a needle in your arm.

It will be noted.

It has a special charm.

 

Sedated smile.

 

In December when the heat goes out.

In July when the AC stop running.

Appreciation is funny.

 

Smile, appreciation is funny.

 

laissez-faire obsession.

Careless martinet.

Impeccable maladroit.

Remembering everything to forget.

 

Architect of abandonment.

 

Highly, effectively, useless at this juncture.

We can have lunch here, brother.

 

Displayed at the zoo, for all to see, fool.

 

Stammer-howl-drool.

 

For all to see,

 

-Fool!

 

We need this! (They stand yelling from afar as they throw you raw meat)

Deal, eat!

 

Cocaine cleanliness.

Your coffee before my nap.

This doesn’t work out.

 

That’s how I feel.

 

We have nothing to talk about.

That is what we have in common.

 

Freshly shaven, hair-cutted bum, sitting on a sandy beach.

Dead and covered in money.

No problems in the least.

 

And you talk at work, as your house sits vacant for all emptiness to see.

 

And some pages are never painted with the light of day

And some people don’t think marriage is gay.

Ridiculous trees.

 

Humans have got it all figured out.

-Over and out.
