IN DEFENSE OF ELIOT


            O sun, giant brimstone inferno ablaze in a midday sky
            Infinitesimal twinkling mirror of the great invisible Light
            So teach us to number our days
            That we may gain a heart of wisdom
            For we are as grass, flourishing in the morning sun
            Withering before the moon’s pale reflection appears
            And of such brief breath, the majority is wasted
            And the minority is spent in searching
            For a shard of microscopic mirror fragment of the Light
            In the daylight, we are surrounded in the shadow
            Enveloped by the dark
            And in the daylight there is great fear
            But there is no harm, but only good in the Light



In honor of American/English poet T. S. Eliot and his friend, King David of Israel, all people, regardless of age, nationality, ‘race’, ethnicity, intellect, gender, sexual orientation, physical or societal stature or handicap, wealth, religion, political, social, moral or other belief, lack of belief or of any other ill-perceived superficial and artificial division and persuasion, are cordially invited to join the Great Revolution of Human and Civil Rights; revolution of peace and social justice and goodwill toward all people who inhabit our mutually shared fragile planetary home. . .


Christianity and other twisted lies,

Just Say “NO!


Jesus, friend of sinners and the common people

just say yes



                    may God bless all those who seek the truth in sincerity
