Words processed before gravity of heartbeats,
Which pumps before, your grave’s funeral time,
Death that ceases flow of recording thoughts,
Afterlife stillness of the lost wilderness inside.

Waterfall splashing observations eroding pages,
Stenciling characters, educating fingers turning
Books into miracles casting spells of learning,
Authors breathing upon one word after the other.

Masterpieces coming to life after decomposition.
Dusty shelves opening feather dusting thoughts.
Transmigration educational timed treasures,
Building stone foundations, weathering pages.

A book is as good, as its last reader sharing its heart,
Long ago silenced, awaiting the redemption of touch,
Reincarnation of a creative writer’s state of mind,
Germination of seed flowering upon another time.

Adoption of the text as an extended literary family,
Grandparental clauses of the evolution of teaching,
Students evaporating on age recomposing as teachers,
To wither and die immortalized by what they did.

Oh fail, fail, and fail again learning more every time,
As failure makes a baby walk, swim, graduate, love,
For living is not about success but de-termination
To take on obstacles using your free speech Freedom.

Democracy never silences, censors, nor conforms,
It never enters libraries to trash the art of diversity.
Shall we segregate our heritage, culture, and voices?
Then open minds of independence, has been conquered.

Oh spring away, in a liberal jig dancing among it verse.
Let hear the gospel hug all the faith’s of God’s creation.
Let the blues of America vibrate the truth of compassion
That America must claim all its citizens or none at all.

Oh divine teachers, may you bless those open minds,
Showing all extremes for them to moderate upon society,
Giving them core values of truth, respect, honesty, courtesy,
Among with tranquility, peace, compassion merging our nation.

Note: Make a list of what an American must conform to, in order for them to be Americans. Now make a list of what words need to be eliminated from the vocabulary, making sure they do not appear in the Bible or are used by very expressive politicians. Now compare these lists to those around you. Soon we will have lost half the population and the biggest part of the vocabulary of condemning others.

It all politicians had the FCC enforcing television standards 24/7 on them, and fining them $1000, our debt would decrease tenfold, for they would have to practice abstinence by not screwing the public’s welfare. If a politician would lose they cool on CSPAN, CNN, CBS, and FOX , which one would get fined by the FCC? I wish I was a Republican with free speech rights, and allowed the “right” to visit the President in town hall meetings. But then, I would have to shed my fancy corporate suit in order to speak my mind, to only then be escorted away by the “Secret” Service as a terrorist threat to the truth, for daring to ask a question in Freedom and Democracy. Have you ever seen the make up of those audiences? It is like you must be on the “right” side of the tracks to be invited into this fraternity.
