I was told, I was obscene by Mercedes HR, and I explained my poems reasoning to an analyst. Found innocent, Mercedes said I was still guilty and they said I was banned the right to write any poetry 24/7, 365 days a year that the napkin therapy of a Vietnam Vet was terms for termination.

That one had to fall into a Conservative German American mindset by denying my Uni-Verse, that I could not transfer thoughts into written forms. That verse was grounds to terminate me in a Right To Work Alabama state.

In a "Terminated for Poetry" reason on my resume, I was forced to live on poetry in an American Dream. In a poetic budget, I left the hair grow, God seemed to put this Franklin Doppelganger look upon me. I do love the Ben Franklin look, but Conservatives today would exile Ben as a false founding father.

My Christmas Miracle would be to receive a Mercedes pardon from Terminated for Poetry (PTSD) to Terminated that would end the Scarlet Letter reign of Poetry being used against this poet in Mercedes saying all my Uni-Verse is obscene. Frankly in Mercedes taking part in the Holocaust in WWII that is monumentally obscene, and it being Hitler favorite car brand stamps a right wing Conservatism, especially when they use Terminated for Poetry for a reason to terminate a employee.

So simple is the solution that we meet and create terms of mutual harmony to set both sides free. But God helped my mother by calling me David that will use sling shot words to win in confrontation with a Franklin Doppelganger image that says to Mercedes the United States has a Constitution that affords poets their Declaration of Independence of creation, especially in their Home Sweet Home Alabama dwellings.


Can Words Create Miracles


Oh poetic wings, will you sail alive salvation

Spreading woven heartbeat’s golden weave,

When poets spread alight a Uni-Verse of Love

Upon pure sensing hues painting vibrations within a soul.

Pastel watercolor blush strokes showing nature’s canvas

Warming the core meaning of clairvoyant existence.


Where inside lines might, characters create miracles

In compiling writing to reach inside reader’s deepest depth.

Prey on those key strokes that dance alive its creation,

Where keyboards germinates the spirit of pure levitation

Of poetic enlightenment in God given gifts filled with inspiration.

Blossoms that seeds birthright’s deed in almighty De-Termination.


Kneel poet to scrape the knees within scarred doubts.

Pray inside demoralized failure that it rebuilds this stature.

Challenge the fairy tale dreams that it builds reality’s fruition.

Leaving those Scarlet Letter pasts into a writing power presence

That present of cerebral currents sailing adrift a mind’s brawn

Alliterating alive, aloft Poetry’s precise precision presentations.


Writing success is when coffin’s novel door bindings are reopened,

Where dust falls to reveal a writer’s seed to a new generation.

When pages come alive in stages of histrionics presentations.

Where in marvel gravestone past, masterpieces do delight.

Where future minds weight heavy upon regenerated characters

Of words creating miracles in full spectrum analytical dimensions.



That if one looks back at the greatest writers of all time

Like William Faulkner, and others famous independent writers

That Conservatives censors have labeled them:

Crazed, drunks, obscene, homosexual, atheist, demonic in Scarlet Letters scars.

They kept writing by never surrendering to Demigod conceptual conformation.

But stood their ground with this creative artistic Declaration of Independence.

Shouting N.U.T.S. to those wanting to censor their Home Sweet Home Freedom.

That God is not narrow minded to shackling people into closed homestead minds,

This is done by Demigods, who use God as a tool to reign in creative Democracy,

That in “We the people’ of Can Words Create Miracles, Writer’s dreams are born.


N.U.T.S.: Never Under Tyranny Surrender

No, words do not create miracles. But words can help a Vietnam vet still tortured by a long-ago war and the battle that he has been waging with Mercedes America. Keep writing your heart out and some day your words will be heard.
