Bourban shades..


FROM NEW YORK.. FROM CHINA.. AND BACK..

CLIPPERS FROM NEW YORK.. FROM CHINA.. AND BACK.. FROM SAN FRANSISCO.. 

San Fransisco in a bar.. wooden stools.. cable cars.. early morning .. coffee folks.. and news.. in the bar.. loud talk of war.. nation.. evolved or creation.. good guitar someone.. playing blues..

Back booth man.. ’bout 40.. tall.. quiet drinker.. ‘seen it all’..  drinks a lot when feeling comes to call.. something seen causes fear.. someone speaks.. he has to choose.. trust a woman.. or the booze..

love or run away from here.. 

Woman with astrology.. finds reason.. innocent.. free.. found a path that suits her very style.. world war vets eye candy please.. appreciate her.. ‘the bees knees’.. she does not look their way.. yet she smiles..

In this city.. any time.. honor bound.. or found in crime.. do not stumble change rumble comes along.. early morning always pretty.. crisp.. clear.. bay.. flowers bloom.. knowing self.. believing true and strong..

About a dream.. a joyful breath.. no thought of war.. avarice.. death.. wind blows such to warehoused lies.. just about two blocks from me.. by St. James Infirmary.. unhappy folks.. find things to despise..

Better day.. need no exchange.. on ship.. canyons.. mountains range.. .. quiet easy.. just one part of me.. meet another for a talk.. learn.. teach.. knots untied.. unlock.. a gate to paths of mystery.. that rocks..

THOUGHT.. ‘no matter the large stacks of papers excusing the most horrible of acts.. almost always out of time.. no matter the confused.. deluded.. no matter the strong inference and provocation of money.. no matter the awareness that intent of legislation is always more appropriate than the oppression created by misuse.. or bad legislation..

acquiescing to peace is.. and always will be.. up to us.. a matter of simply changing our minds.. understanding education to be the best of ‘long term social investments’..

I would love 10% of the worlds military budget to build schools..  educate.. happy folks do not go to war.. when they remember themselves.. think straight.. educated people know it is enormously stupid to destroy..

thus they are mature.. beyond toys.. beyond destructive wanderlust..

‘THE REWARDS OF PEACE.. ARE IN KIND.. OF MIND’..  Peace Tony

About cryinforthedyin

I write philosophy and poetry. I postulate solutions for problems..I find similiar things in history to compare to present day, hoping to find a solution to the seemingly difficult task of giving and receiving love. I play music. Blues harp, piano, guitar, electric and acoustic. I sing..I love to sing..Peace Tony
