“Okay, it’s, uh, great to be here in New York. Um, I know that sounds phony ’cause every entertainer in the world comes out no matter where they are and they always go “HEY! IT’S REALLY GREAT TO BE HERE!”

And it really sounds fake. But, believe me,I am sincere when I say, “HEY! IT’S REALLY GREAT TO BE HERE!”

– Steve Martin

The only thing significant

About where you were born

Is that statistically it is

Within 50 miles of

Where you will die

Other than that it is

A geographical location

With a contrived name

Probably picked by

A cross-eyed map maker

Or, like the land

Stolen from

The indigenous culture

That was there first

Treating it with grace

For its sacredness

Still most people

Are “proud'” of where

They were born due to

An accident of birth

Or better / worse yet

Moved because of

Economic circumstances

Still it is a quick and easy

Pavlovian crowd pleaser

To mention the largest

“Hometown” name

Above the lost suburbs

To stir an emotional reaction

Of whoops hoots and hollers

Never wondering why

In the larger scheme of things

And I do mean larger

Such as if, intergalactic

Multidimensional travel

Was the norm

Beings would declare

They are earthlings

So why not now

Buddying up as one

Taking care of each

“Our” own kind

So why not now

Not those “alien”

Martian and Venusian’s

Who have somehow

Traversed through our

Atmospheric border

Conquering space

Asteroids fields

Gamma rays and comets

Seeking a better

Place to be

Because they too

Saw the beacon

Of liberty glowing

On the third

Rock from the sun

Who based on

Current experiences

Will want to call themselves

At the next

Out of this world

Cosmological rock concert

Or political rally

Earthlings

Then maybe we will

All just get along

Long enough

To share and develop

The technology

To keep out

Those pesky

Saturnian’s and Plutonian’s

Feel the sarcasm

Know the sarcasm

Be the sarcasm

“There’s no such thing as ‘We’re Americans.’ That’s just a bunch of bullshit to get you rooting for the home team. You’re not an American, you’re a guy, or a girl, or whatever.

Until the Mongols come over the hills swinging machetes, trying to take our fire-hazard underground comedy club away from us, then we all buddy up as one.

But those days are over, there’s no-one trying to take over America. We weren’t on the verge of speaking Iraqi.

As far as ‘America’ goes – there’s two countries in the world: Dick, and Not a Dick. The border goes all the way around.

Did you ever go to another country and meet another American when you didn’t expect to?

You always talk to them, just for the trivia. ‘Hey, you’re from America? I’m from America! Where you from?’ 

And it’s never more than three sentences before you realise, if I was in America, I wouldn’t talk to this d#&^%bag if my hair was on fire and he held a monopoly on liquid.

I’m an American? What does that mean? I’m no more an American than I’m an Aires or an uncle. It’s just something you called me when I showed up.”

A Declared Atheist

“I’m an atheist.”

– David Cross

.

A declared atheist

Is a person

Who believes

In not believing

In an unbelievable

Person / entity

That has been

Conjured up

By collective

Beliefs

To satiate

A need to believe

.
“Now, believe is a word that I have a serious problem with, right, because it has a “Lie” in the middle.

.
“DNA” Descendant Now Ancestor

– John Trudell

.

Declaration of a deity

Either spoke or written

Is hardly proof

Of any existence

.

I would bet

In a pinch

That person

Would double

Pascal’s wager

To prove

They were wrong

“A lot of people don’t like to think that human beings came from monkeys, and it is usually for religious reasons.

You know, you talk to people and they are tell you they know, that they came from Jesus, they didn’t come from a monkey.

You’ve ever get in those conversations, where someone says they know.

NO? Bro, I know I came from Jesus BRO I know man, I came from Jesus BRO I came from Jesus, I didn’t come from a monkey.

“Ah, aren’t you like 30 ? “Hey, how do you know so much????…… there are dudes that have studied this for thousands of  years? You got it wrapped up?

I don’t know if I came from a monkey or I came from Jesus, because I’m pretty fucking dumb and I’ve done no research whatsoever!

All right? But I’m honest! And you know what else I’ve done? I like to memorize shit that smart people have already figured out.

It is a huge time saver! and everybody should do it! Instead of saying you know,  go and read some shit.

One if the things they figured out, is that they mapped out the human genome… whatever that #uck that means!

It is like the ingredient for people? or something, something? and what they found out was that people are 96% chimpanzee!

That’s a lot of monkey! I mean It is something even worth arguing? If I gave you a sandwich, which is 96% shit… and 4% ham, would you be willing to consider that ham sandwich?

WE ARE MONKEYS!!

It doesn’t mean there’s no god!

That’s where everybody gets crazy! It doesn’t mean everybody has an answer, or that you’re right! No one is saying there’s no god!

All I’m saying is maybe……God made a monkey, which doesn’t like to think it is a monkey and lies a lot!

Does that make sense?

That’s makes way more sense! That’s what we do!”

– Joe Rogan

Tragedy ?

It is not tragic

It’s systematic

.
Only gonna get worse

Till it fills the last hearse

.
Doing their president’s bidding

With a wink he’s only kidding

.
Of course its happened before

Blaming 45 doesn’t end the gore

.
Only shifts the responsibility

What is left of our humanity

.
Marching to a death cadence

Losing real self independence

.
All going to die anyway

Why not make it lead spray

.
Bullets are just another form

Bringing into play a new norm

.
Wonder why this is different

From an automobile accident

.
Just as many deaths occur

Check the statistics to be sure

.
One seems 2 B circumstantial fate

Other happens from learned hate

.
Both largely preventable

If we were only responsible

.
When someone’s loved one

Is randomly killed by a gun

.
That is the wrong target to blame

Instead of addressing the shame

.
In the way we treat each other

Over the issue of skin color

.
A thin layer of epidermis

Hardly worth dividing us

.
Won’t get any kind of relief

Until collective evolves its beliefs

.
Could so easily be undone

Knowing all have the same skeleton

.
To accept otherwise is naive

Viewed from the box in the grave

Fascism

Fascism does not stem

From the will of the leader

It takes root in the righteous

Indignation of its base

Guided by misdirection

Self hate, empathetic lack

Projected onto a man

That embodies a reflection

Of fears to be faced

Racism to be erased

Of ignorance to be overcome

Misogyny to be undone

Ending xenophobia

In this bizarre dystopia

Words

“Every word has power”

– John Trudell

 

.
Besides beer and wine

Words are my drug

Taken in large

Or small doses

Always mind altering

Context is the key

The dictionary

Is my main supplier

Merriam Webster

Is his / her name

With backups

Just in case

I need a quick fix

In the moment

That I’m at

A loss for words

Can not spell

Let alone pronounce

Either way

I can imbibe

All I want

Guaranteed

No hangover

Or detrimental

Side effects

Save being

Guilty of

Possession

With intent

To distribute

Occasionally

Mixed in with

Comas or

Question marks

A series of

Dot dot dot dots

For pause and

Effect / affect

Enhanced with

Exclamation points

To tweak

The experience or

Add a little flavor

Tilting at windmills

F that

I’m hallucinating

At illusions
