Do not force your Will, upon my Free will... (Poetry) - 5/15/2004 8:24:54 PM|
A very excellent write that provocates much thought and debate!
Sadly the truth is in this world we must live NOTHING IS FREE no matter how much we may think it is!
Do not force your Will, upon my Free will... (Poetry) - 5/13/2004 2:18:27 PM
But what if the choices you make for your life as you exercise your free will affect the lives of many, many other people?
Do not force your Will, upon my Free will... (Poetry) - 5/13/2004 7:18:34 AM
Gary, I have no idea how old you are, but please rewrite this poem if you are alive in another 20 years; remember Charles Mansion is only guilty of exercising his free will. At many times in my life, the worst thing I did was exercise free will. Other people are not necessary enslaving us. If you don't like something you have the right to tell someone to fu*k off anytime you choose. But I feel that your thinking has holes in it. And I am not trying to exercise my free will over you. Take any route you choose, who really cares
but you. Bill Murray
Kill them all... (Poetry) - 4/27/2004 5:32:40 PM
3 readings, Gary.. and I went 3 directions.. I can say, with confidence, only this: in every scenario, this is damned good! I'm taking pieces of each with me.. you earned your "I Agree" click. Great stuff! katy xox.
Kill them all... (Poetry) - 4/27/2004 4:33:48 PM
We had an interesting episode in a local high school last week when a white kid made the statement "kill them all" when talking about other-skinned foreigners in this country. He then apologized to a foreign female student, who then told her dad at home that evening. The police were called in to investigate. The verdict: just a kid who blurted something at the wrong time, wrong place.
Art mimics Life imitating Art mimicking Life... (Poetry) - 4/26/2004 12:07:02 PM
I can nearly see the wheels turning in your head, Gary.. this is one of those 'overdue' needed-to-be-said pieces, I'd say. It amazes me when I read something that so many think, but one, only one, has the guts to stand up and actually write on the page. I'm with ya! katy xox.

ooooo, Gary! You've been hangin' out with your soft, sexy parts lately, I see. (smile) It's mesmerizing poetry, indeed. I quite got lost and left the room for a bit. You are a many-'sided' poet and I think your romantic side is lovely. Carry on. katy xox p.s. I just read your bio, finally.. Jaysus, it's really grand! you are one clever, layered, cool chap!

American's do love a WAR... (Poetry) - 4/24/2004 6:01:12 AM
It says that in most cases it is nothing more than a creative way for Liberals and Wacko Environmentalist to scam us out of our money and redistribute into the general fund.

Mastication of an Enchanted Fruit... (Poetry) - 4/21/2004 6:40:49 AM
This makes me realize that this is indeed the century that Poetry will reveal and demystify the empire of the FOOLS.
Thank you, Poet for bringing light to this dark environment. Thank you for writing to strike the minds of those that search for light and freedom. Thank you for not accepting to live hypnotized by the Greek-Roman Empire.
This poem is a picture of the creative work of a Poet that knows what Poetry is for.
Mastication of an Enchanted Fruit... (Poetry) - 4/21/2004 5:26:30 AM
The Poets must show the way. Poets must warn. True Poets must instruct, and guide to wisdom theirs and other's lives.
You, Master Poet Gary Stonecipher, you are the Poet
that would make Aristotle smile!
"Mastication of an Enchanted Fruit..." is a masterpiece of excellence to survive throughout the life of Mankind.

Mastication of an Enchanted Fruit... (Poetry) - 4/21/2004 5:10:31 AM
I am thankful to The Great Poet (My Creator) for the privilege to read a Poet of the magnitude, wisdom, grandiloquence, knowledge and art of this Author, Poet Gary Stonecipher.
"Mastication of an Enchanted Fruit..." is a Poem that makes Minerva and Phoebus call Erato to tell her, “That is a Poet You have on Earth”.
I have learned from a reading of a doctoral, philosophical and Poetical brilliance.
I Salute You, August Sublime Poet Gary Stonecipher.

Great write. But what about one bush in a white house, makes you think doesn't it?
A cover is only an inkling... (Poetry) - 4/15/2004 10:26:05 AM
Ah, yes, Gary.. the "sacred cow"... While they 'clamor for hamburger', as you aptly suggest, let us not forget the immortal words of that "headstrong" lady, Marie Antoinette and from now on, "let them eat cake"... as my beloved John Keats says: 'Beauty is truth, truth, beauty"... keep tellin' it like it is, Mr. S. Some of us are listening. Yep.. katy xox.

A Christianˇ not me... not ever... and why... (Poetry) - 4/14/2004 3:29:16 PM
As a true Christian, I wholeheartedly agree that politicians and others who use their faith to destroy the faith are enemies of the faith! I also agree that even Christ would not like the form of chritiannity practiced by the phonies who use it to cover over their many nefarious deeds. I hope you will judge Christans by those who are true to its doctrine not to flaunt it for their own personal agenda!Thank you! btw Excellent write;-)!
A Christianˇ not me... not ever... and why... (Poetry) - 4/14/2004 3:28:44 PM

Corporate Life? (Poetry) - 4/11/2004 7:54:31 AM
Gary.. point taken.. without those on the "front lines" there is no corporation.. they sometimes forget that.. and there's a reason they always seem to be drawn on paper looking like a pyramid.. yep. katy xox. p.s. but Ted isn't entirely wrong either... for, contrary to your poem, we do HOPE that the corporation will have, if nothing else human, some conscience! true? Sigh.. at least we HOPE this...(Ted's DOES.. or I wouldn't have mentioned it.. ) xox.
Corporate Life? (Poetry) - 4/11/2004 2:40:01 AM

Bushwhacked, indeed! (the 'hand job' was a truly frightening vision, on this particular topic.. LOL). We'll see, won't we? Hmmmmm... another 'knock me off my chair' goodie, Gary. katy xox.
Circle of Hate the Circle... (Poetry) - 4/7/2004 12:15:27 PM
Obviously, Gary, we have a "match made in heaven"... You do all the work, coming up with this brilliance... I just think about it .. ALL THE TIME! Carry on... katy xox.
A GOP Amen! (Poetry) - 4/7/2004 12:12:49 PM

The enemy it turns out, is just like us... (Poetry) - 4/5/2004 10:52:44 AM
Your Nota Bene (what the hell does that mean, anyway? I know I could look it up but I'd rather have you tell me.) clarifies your position.
It is not just the failed politicians who make war inevitable, it is the successful politicians who see profit in war. I'm sure the Spartans had their equivalent of Halliburton.
The enemy it turns out, is just like us... (Poetry) - 4/5/2004 2:53:43 AM
Am I to understand that you believe that on 9/11/2001 and/or 12/7/41 when we were attacked (both times) by foreign enemy we should have rolled over and played dead? If we do what you apparently think is right..Who is it that you think is going to be in control of the US thirty minutes after that next attack? Make no mistakes there will be another and probably sooner rather than later.
Ofcourse if we had of followed your thought pattern in '41 we'd all be speaking fluent Japanese by now! Being bilinqual is a good thing if it's a choice..but being bilinqual is not a good thing when it's because your country was over run by foreign takeover.
They are not going to ask your political views before they either blow you up or shoot you dead..either way they are going to kill you and you are going to die. They hate you because you are a direct result of what America stands for..Freedom. Unless you would strap C-4 onto your body and blow up not only yourself but many other innocent civilians...reguardless of what you think at the moment...The enemy is NOT just like you.
Your write proposes a melancholy, let's just all get along theory that would be great if the whole world would sit and have a coke together but in all reality...that's just not going to happen.
My hope for you is that if push comes to shove...that you and all those like you find yourselves surrounded by a troop of infantry that will protect you reguardless of your thoughts and beliefs..They will you know? That's why we are and will continue to be..America..Land of the Free and Home of the Brave! Lisa
The enemy it turns out, is just like us... (Poetry) - 4/4/2004 11:36:58 PM
I know our enemy, he has no government other than anarchy, he is not a product of corporate greed, he is the product of religious extremism and believe me he hates you enough already without any corporation's or politician's help. He has but one goal in life and that is to see you dead, to think otherwise or to place blame on anything or anyone other than him is not only simplistic but dangerous. The PROOF that you offer is anecdotal and misguided.
I love peace as much as anyone, (maybe not you), but I live in the real world, not in some sixties counter culture dream state where we all love and respect one another as humans. You mention sheep, I love lamb chops.
The enemy it turns out, is just like us... (Poetry) - 4/4/2004 6:44:03 PM
Hi Gary.. I got your note and I'm very happy to reproduce my original note, as you've asked. Now.... about that "pretty please with the cherry on top".... (grin) I truly appreciate your thoughts here.. -----> Gary, I am one who spends time with my comments and focuses on how a piece has impressed,moved,tickled or touched me.. BUT.. this time, I must say, without reservation, that Dan Summerfield, below here, has taken the words right out of my mouth, though he isn't aware of it, per se. (smile).. Read him and you've read me. I couldn't have said it any better. I'm with you, Gary.. Yep! If I were to add or change Dan's, I would simply stick in that Hiroshim and Nagasaki were clear examples of what you've said... innocent people (enemies?) being killed and later justified. Put the politicians in a cock-fight-type ring and let 'em go at each other... I guarantee there'd be some changes made... and they can leave the rest of us alone, to find peace with the populace of any nation. Great rant/commentary here. katy xox.

So true, Gary! We need to return to the Biblical foundations on which our country was founded, and we need to put GOD back into our lives and homes! So sad how our country has deterioated since prayer was taken out of school or our homes..pathetic, really! (((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn (who IS a Christian!). :(

Well written vent here, and I really know what you mean, Things are changing rapidly in this world of ours, even in the South where change...good or bad reaches last. There still are angels of the road, but their numbers are diminishing fast. Great write,
