One must rant to release the build up of stress, to expunge the darkness to see the light. I learned that in writing on napkins after I was discharged into the Vietnam lifelong conflict.

Free Speech Brand Of Scarlet Letters Rant


Part 1


Deep down depressions storms inside scared pain

That rips open a soul into tattered torn pieces

Shredding tears flow in boiling aftermath acid reflux,

Where Scarlet Letters rakes you with razor blades.

American Home Sweet Home in broken America Dreams

That 90% are denied hope being homeless needing an ID.


God what is this Christian country club outsourcing God

Bless Made in America for an atheist and Socialist nation

These Demigods with their own Pledge in tax free America’s

10% investing in a planned parenthood society overseas,

While condemning abortion as a tool to get them elected.

That they have so many Tax havens and Swiss secret holes

That they say they are paying too much taxes, like GE’s 0%.


Oh the Scarlet Letter “L” in being Liberal as a founding father

That like artists in China working America have censorship

That workers be denied their Free Speech to speak out,

Just like Germany did in WWII, but in America’s Alabama.

That Conservative Germany invests in the Conservative South’s

Right to Work states that allows any form of dismissal

That they brand an employee forever and forevermore

Terminated for Poetry upon a lifetime resume application

Just as if in Germany one stamped one as a WWII Jew.

That like those numbers etched in skin it hurts like hell.


The sorrows that wallow in the endless sleep of prayers

That living suicide in never giving up in fighting strength.

But being found guilty before and after innocence

One feels America’s wrath

He must have done something wrong.

God how many times has someone stood up

To political leaders

The Pope,


That Real Change must happen.
