Happy Gun Appreciation Day....from sea to shining sea

We do not care-
That much is clear.
Not enough
Of us care
Anywhere.
We are not wise-
For that reason
Mankind dies.
To think
Is much against
The will.
Better-
And easier-
To kill.

Acceptance...

God in His infinite wisdom
Did not make me very wise-
so when my actions are stupid
They hardly take God by surprise

Unity in the Mystical Body

I plead with you, then, as a
prisoner for the Lord to live a
life worthy of the calling you have
received, 2 with perfect humility,
meekness, and patience, bearing with
one another lovingly. 3 Make every
effort to preserve the unity which
has the Spirit as its origin and peace
as its binding force. 4 There is but
one body and one Spirit, just as
there is but one hope given all of you
by your call. 5 There is one Lord,
one faith, one baptism; 6 one God
and Father of all, who is over all,
and works through all, and is in all.

Ephesians 6: 1-6

"i am.... a mushroom;

a band with a website

there once was a band with a website
that lett people chat all night
with millions of topics
including philanthropics
but a motive of profit
started to make it a bad fit
and nobody named rhino could change it

we're all left to wonder
was it an IT blunder
or deadhead rhinoids with heads split asunder
that was driving their website under

in retrospect so simple
hire people who can make websites a wonder
and stop the product/commercial blunder
and you'll sell a shitload of product
happily everafter
before a bust of Jerry in alabaster plaster

True, that

A few years ago my wife and I were walking to a theater to see Lou Reed. I slipped on the blackest of black ice, landed square on my back. It hurt, a lot. Other folks -- complete strangers -- walking down the same sidewalk stopped to make sure that I was ok, helped me up, and so on.

My wife? Barely able to stand herself...because she was laughing so hard. Apparently it was the funniest thing she's ever seen. She still talks about it. Thanks, sweetheart.

Stylish, low-profile crampons, anyone?

After a Night of The Q

They say that a warren is a network
of interconnecting burrows,
like a rabbit hole,
hence, Haynes
can be seen as
a space into which

we fall,

like Alice tumbling, we watch
as the composition of the whole
flashes by while revealing
its many notable parts,
like Tears of a Clown,
Norwegian Wood,
Eleanor Rigby,
Mountain Jam,
and so much more
as yet to be determined.
