      Happy name day, by the way. ๐ŸŽ‰
      Don’t think there’s one for my name,
      But then, I’m no saint by any game. ๐Ÿฅณ

      1. Can I come up with a rhyme
        as an answer to David this time? ๐Ÿค”
        When he speaks of saints and sinners,
        the only thing I can say
        is that in the family of God,
        weโ€™re all a bunch of winners ๐Ÿ˜Ž

      it’s a fashion statement
      With a daffodil in the lapel
      dancing to a Tom Jones song
      and singing a Welsh lament

  1. Happy Saint David’s Day, David.

    I have fond memories of staying at the Great Llewellynfranc Farm (with its amazing view of the Skirrid Mountain) on the other side of the valley not far from the Welsh town of Llanvihangel Crucorny a village which was a lot smaller than its name. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    1. You too, Saint Christopher.
      You deserve a medal ๐Ÿ…๐Ÿ˜‡

      Yes, the Welsh love those long
      unpronounceable place names.
      I do have a Welsh Great Grandfather.
      He was a lawyer working to represent
      the rebelling miners during the
      Victorian Gold Rush. The rebellion
      against oppressive colonial rule
      (overly expensive mining licences)
      culminated in the Eureka Stockade.
      It was the Australian equivalent of
      the Boston Tea Party. The protest
      was violently put down, and the
      surviving leaders were charged
      with treason. The Crown wanted
      them hanged, but a jury found
      them innocent. I believe my Welsh
      ancestor had a hand in that victory
      over British Imperialism. Australia
      was forever changed for the better.
      Our judicial system was later to be
      the first anywhere in the world to
      hang several white men for the
      murder of indigenous inhabitants.

      1. Thanks, David. ๐Ÿ˜€

        That’s excellent about the Australian judicial system.๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

        I understand Australia was also the first country in the world to have a pink sequined g-string hanging over the cosmic black hole at the front of a white man and a (non) homecoming queen.

    1. Trailer park epiphany
      I have become
      comfortably dumb
      Stranger Chaos
      of the Black Hole Sun
      chasing the Dragon Lady
      to the deep end of a fishbowl
      Cold Turkey on the run
      Contagion flowing
      from a fossil fuel soul
      Earth bound street dreams
      The wiseman and the fool
      plugging the same hole


      1. Star Date: May 2 2020 (Saint Charlie’s
        Day on all Federation Planets)
        Looking for a pit stop to pull into
        and log on. Michael warned me to
        avoid truck stops, and those back
        street pool halls, full of truck drivers
        and snookers shooting the cesspool ๐Ÿ––

        And it’s a mystery to me, as well ๐Ÿค”

        I was held back by an irresistible force,
        from an enigma sandwich named
        the Phantasmagorian Riddler.

        Joe Pesci. Chuck would make a

  3. there was manna at the Cracker Barrel tonight
    pure Mexican lab stuff at $75 a pop
    I saw people soaring with a string tied around their toe
    priceless to see average humans experiencing the GOD vibe

    1. Stockpiling pasta and toilet paper
      at the Walmart Black Virus Sale riot
      my heart did melt upon hearing the
      All Girl Bible Belters singing their
      rendition of Jesus is my Boyfriend.
      The vibe was emotion amplified.
      But the Spirit was revealing, and
      just couldn’t be denied. Believe me
      . . . I tried.


      1. I was shocked at the number of boys
        in the All Girl Bible Belters
        the group sounded much better
        than they looked
        American Mutts
        Darwin would have snapped his fingers
        and said something like,
        “you go girl”
        I can honestly say that I’ve never said
        that line, “you go girl”
        the virus seems to make people nervous
        at the truck stop
        everyone loves to lather up
        I guess if you eat and sleep at a truck stop
        some stupid virus doesn’t mean much
        most guys are happy to have a full stream
        and no anal doughnuts

      2. I hear the mooing
        The thinning is beginning
        The fattened calf
        from the herd
        for a sacrifice Darwinian
        If you see my little red rooster
        hiding out at that truck stop
        on Route 66
        tell him Mick Jagger
        will give him shelter
        before the living end
        Mick’s looking to get some kicks
        in his space cotton socks
        with yo mamma

    1. Too much late night television
      gave me a bad case
      of social engineering
      of the extreme kind
      That tunnel division vision
      eventually sent me blind
      … until;

      ๐ŸŽถI solve my problems
      when I see the light
      It’s that lovin’ thing,
      we gotta feed it right
      There ain’t no danger
      we can take it too far
      We start believing now
      that we can be what we are
      Jesus is the word

      They think that love
      is just a losing game
      Why don’t they understand,
      it’s just a crying shame
      Their lips are lying
      only the real is real
      We stop the fight right now,
      we got to be the love deal
      Jesus is the word

      He’s got groove
      He’s got meaning
      Jesus is the King
      of time and space,
      who gives creation it’s motion
      with mercy and grace
      Now, Jesus is way beyond
      all human understanding
      He is the word
      that you’ve heard
      Movin’ and a-groovin’
      just like grease lightening ๐ŸŽถ

      1. one lives like King Tut for years and years
        healthy and beautiful and overfunded
        friends and lovers and curious newcomers
        travel galore, collecting rocks and minerals
        mail art and 24/7 painting downtown DC
        and then one day your legs fall off
        and you start leaking oil
        (Mick Jagger stops returning your calls)

      2. Finally I found
        my little little red rooster
        Why would he want to disappear?
        He was the head cock around here
        And all the hens really did care
        He seems to have been plucked
        and turned into a feather duster
        For him I’ve shed a bitter tear
        Mick jagger didn’t give him shelter
        Keith Richards told him to beware
        All far too late I fear
        In this life it would appear
        a rolling stoner rooster
        ain’t going to get very far
        Unless he can crow like Jagger
        or play a mean guitar ๐ŸŽธ


  4. characters who are living reality
    living history
    have little realization
    weeds come and go
    trees and houses inhale
    and exhale
    the weather is difficult
    cold, hot, wet, dry
    stupid snow and ice
    stupid people in automobiles
    endless headaches and heartbreaks
    pilgrims don’t make the evening news
    Biblical and secular history
    stored away for another time

    1. “Reality?”, said Frankie Lee
      in a voice as cold as ice.

      “Eternity!”, said Judas Priest,
      “But some call it paradise.”

      “I don’t call it anything.”,
      replied Frankie Lee in jest.
      “I’ll believe it when I can taste it.
      But, in the meantime, a shot
      of love would be kind of nice.” …

      I need a shot of love
      Donโ€™t need a shot of heroin
      to kill my disease
      Donโ€™t need a shot of turpentine,
      only bring me to my knees
      Donโ€™t need a shot of codeine
      to help me to repent
      Donโ€™t need a shot of whiskey,
      help me be president
      I need a shot of love
      Doctor, can you hear me?
      I need some Medicaid
      I seen the kingdoms of the world
      and itโ€™s makinโ€™ me feel afraid
      What I got ainโ€™t painful,
      itโ€™s just bound to kill me dead
      Like the men that followed Jesus
      when they put a price upon His head
      I need a shot of love
      I donโ€™t need no alibi
      when Iโ€™m spending time with you
      Iโ€™ve heard all of them rumors
      and you have heard โ€™em too
      Donโ€™t show me no picture show
      or give me no book to read
      It donโ€™t satisfy the hurt inside
      nor the habit that it feeds
      Why would I want to take your life?
      Youโ€™ve only murdered my father,
      raped his wife
      Tattooed my babies
      with a poison pen
      Mocked my God,
      humiliated my friends
      Donโ€™t wanna be with
      nobody tonight
      Thereโ€™s a man that hates me
      and heโ€™s swift, smooth and near
      Am I supposed to sit back
      and wait until heโ€™s here?
      What makes the wind
      wanna blow tonight?
      Donโ€™t even feel like
      crossing the street
      and my car ainโ€™t actinโ€™ right
      Called home,
      everybody seemed
      to have moved away
      My conscience is beginning
      to bother me today
      If youโ€™re a doctor,
      I need a shot of love

      ~ Bob Dylan


  5. she said that the map was wrong
    indelible marks of the past were on the move
    the past in the present healed up
    she would rub the scar
    knowing where it would go
    Satan claimed he caught Jesus
    erasing the history book
    marks expunged
    to bring conformity
    the conformity of God’s Will

    1. Living Unity brings the blessing

      Conformity is a salad dressing
      A mayonnaise full of chemicals
      and toxic preservatives
      The malaise of living in this age
      of desolation and misinformation

      For a really happy ending
      hang on to the beginning

      3 x Hatred
      is the beast’s marking
      Hatred of God
      Hatred of Mankind
      Hatred of all Creation
      With lashings of self loathing

      Manna from Heaven comes
      without salad dressing
      Jesus is the Cracker Barrel of Salvation
      for all those who earnestly seek him

      The poison of Hades
      cooked up in Hell’s Kitchen
      is covered in industrial slime
      The communion wafer
      of environmental crime

      Man given earthly dominion
      Created above the angels
      on the celestial totem
      All was good in the garden
      But for one really pissed off
      prideful angel of light …
      now known as Satan
      How the mighty have fallen
