Clouds Loom Thick And Black

Clouds loom thick and black

The horizon is obscured

Changes are coming

You can hear them in whispers

Blowing softly through the trees

An Old Nemesis

An old nemesis

Fighting against me since youth

Comes again to call,

Trying to snuff my life out

As it’s always wanted to.

Thus far it has lost,

But I am a realist,

One day I will lose

And will have to pay the price…

Until then I choose to live!

Across The Great Pond

Across the great pond

Our brothers in arms struggle

With decision’s pain.

Their new reality looms

On an island all alone.

 

I don’t envy them,

In this turbulent hour,

The uncertainty

As reality sets in.

Promises can be fiction,

Unattainable

As proponents show

Just a day after.

Perhaps thoughts were not thought through

And the fallout considered.

 

But now it’s too late,

The ballots have been cast and

The results tallied.

Leaving is the decision

And there is no turning back.

 

What have you been through,

I would never claim to know.

Your lives are your own

Things are changing, less defined.

Leaving the past…difficult.

 

This is a big world

Where borders sometimes get blurred

And life chaotic.

None-the-less I wish the best

To our friends in the U.K.

Second Amendment

Second amendment

Times do change and so must we

Guns aren’t the answer

How many more have to die

Before we show some control

Before I get any angry comments I’d like to make it clear that I am not anti-gun ownership.  I do however, believe that assault style weapons are unnecessary for the average citizen to own for personal protection or otherwise.  We continue to make excuses that banning assault weapons wouldn’t have changed anything and so our leaders have chosen to do nothing and as a result nothing has changed.  We continue to see an increase in mass shootings and an ever greater amount of death with the murders weapon of choice…the assault weapon.  When will one more death be too many?
