trident tongues belong to both democratic and republican parties...
a 9-11 updated piece for today's world happenings.


We stand back in silence
as our nation's credo dilutes,
rupturing into
putrid pieces of deceit
by tongues that are forked...
smashed to the ground
on the flaming backs
of those who prayed
to fly.

Trident tongues
hawking evil as good
good as evil,
enemies as allies. 

We hear yet mock
those that sound the harbingers,
spiraling further and faster
toward consequences warned

we offer gilt shovels
to masks of kindness and peace
so they may claim 
our hallowed ground
for islam
who's credo is
death to America...
'broken or dead'

If it's political, chances are it's incorrect. But that does not mean I'm against all politicians. Irreverence does not mean irreligious, or that all such traditions are as bereft of spirit as a dead doctrine, a credo for Cretans, or a series of stale sonnets. But to deny the spiritual side of humanity or conflate it with some kind of altruistic ecumenism is equally ignorant folly. Be they liberal or conservative, they be brainwashed and bankrupt of any legitimate moral or ethical center, regardless of what masks of kindness and peace they may wear. And if the mask fits, wear it.

I am always amazed at how quickly we forget history, I am so tired of PC, go into any school system in the greater boston area, don't tell me you need to be a fanatic to think differently, ask the little boy why he thinks he should be at the front of the line, and in front of his teacher, I could go off on this topic but will stop here. Thanks for the write.

You have a way of using words in a intriguing light bringing forth visions though imagery which is a form of "a picture is worth a thousand words" so superbly done, Vesper

Religion caters to extreme. I have a few Muslim friends and have stayed in Muslim homes in other countries. Our perspective is skewed by focusing on fanatics and the media emphasizing certain aspects.

Whatever religion that you claim… and most do, it's no better than any other. Each religion has its good and bad points. Individuals tend to use religion to carry out their agendas. That's why we have freedom of religion. I find that all religions are weird and dangerous.

Eyes rolling or no, your kids are right. It's time we accept the whole world for what it is. Emphasize freedom of, and freedom from, religion and work on what's best for all of us, not just what's best for Americans… our piece of the pie is already too big.

My poem, Alienation, is a better explanation for what is happening.

There will always be those who question our actions as a society, as a nation, thinking their visions are more pure, more purposeful. What is sad is that we choose to kill what we cannot control. M.True

This a great in-your-face penned poem, my friend. It seems to me that immediately after the horror which took place in New York the word was out that you'd better not utter words which contained Muslim or Islam because that would land you behind bars. Politically correct had been around for a good many years, but after 9-11 it took on a dangerous and spiteful meaning,
