THEY sat on their high horses
Watched as the ropes were placed
Around the necks of those
Who were different
Bound and gagged
Into silence
For speaking out
For wanting equality
For noticing the segragation among them
Betrayed by the hypocrites
Who profess God and goodness
Yet, stand in judgement
Denying that they, themselves
Will be judged accordingly
As the soap boxes are kicked aside
And the innocent, dangle
On the ropes of inuendo and persecution
Gasping for the breath of fresh air of expression
Suffocating with censure
Their eyes rolling
To the back of their heads
With disbelief, that such biggotry abounds
But we have not witnessed their death
We have not heard the last of their cries
For the good souls
Banned and chastised
Will rise up again
As the phoenix from the ashes
Until lynch mobs are no more
And all those are equal
Even in their differences
And THEY, who have ridden their high horses
Have fallen off

I don't think anyone knows the meaning of shame anymore. I don't think people operate on the level of integrity.

And I laugh at all that is going on. It is so comical. So stupid on both sides by all participants. What a way to show the world that we do not write ... we slander at every turn and then are in turn slandered by those we slander. Children belong at home not on AD. Krissy I am not saying these words about you. I know you have been called stupid names by those who wear the badge and are sworn to uphold the law. Not brow beat others and call the s.o.b.s' and all. So you have ever right to rant and rave. GO HEAD HANG IT ALL OUT. I am you friend; whatever you choose to do. Bill Murray

I'm sick and tired of being demeaned and slandered for things I never did, and you know I didn't! I have never asked for anyone to be banned, nor do I care what your creed is, just leave me out of his poems but he can't do it. Don't you ever wonder why? Do you and he think we are all fools? Don't answer, I know he does, he says AD and all the author's are garbage, and everyone just let's him, say whatever he pleases, but oh the stink when anyone answers back. What do you think this is His Dynasty?

As I dangle here, refusing to choke, I laugh at these Queen ANTS that think every one peons and workers, I laugh at the old women who play with their boy toys and profess true love at last has found it's way to their door, via a caravan of camels
