Making History – A Poem

A shot heard ‘round the world

A day that will live in infamy

Soldiers plant a flag unfurled

Millions dead to bigotry

Shackled men are emancipated

Give me liberty or give me death

No representation indicated

In history, I shall hold my breath

We are told there’s nothing to fear

That we can all share a dream

As lady liberty sheds a tear

Two twins fall with deafening screams

I roll by the amber waves of grain

And see the ghosts done in by hate

Ring the liberty bell again

And free us from our chaotic state

For we must look through others eyes

So history we do not repeat

And shield us from the damning lies

That hides the truth and deceit

Now we stand at a precipice

A puzzle to unravel

A solution to clean up our mess

I’ll take the road less traveled

Human Nature – A Poem

Ignorance may be bliss

But in truth it’s a dark abyss

Where fear and power reign

Where C.R.E.A.M rules the game

Where women and children are beaten at night

And stranger’s look at each other in fright

Paranoia will take us down

The cruelest one gets the crown

Midnight is forever lasting

The haunted children ever casting

Sun and moon battle for titles

This ain’t no band recital

Bombs and bullets fall like rain

And the soldiers are the ones who feel the pain

Body bags are filled with warriors dead

Predators lurking to strip their bones and take their head

One shot, one kill

Sniper on a distant hill

Silent sentinels search the skies

Deadly whistles drown out wounded cries

No Sh*t Sherlock: BBC’s Modern Take on Old Classic

My first introduction to the world’s Greatest Detective was through the PBS show “Wishbone”, then through the cartoon “Sherlock Holmes in the 22nd Century.”  In general, I have avoided any and all movies until I watched the new ones with Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law.  I then stumbled on this BBC show, and was hooked within the first ten minutes, and chomping at the bit for the next one.  The wait is long between series, but well worth it.

The world’s first consulting detective existence in the modern age is perfect, with a wealth of knowledge and data at his finger tips.  The show’s biting humor and tongue in cheek wit at the expense of Sherlock’s utter lack of social awareness is endearing and amusing to the office, as is the boys’ staunch establishment of their heterosexuality, and various jokes to suggest otherwise.  Watson’s chronicles via blog gains them notoriety, but lends an anchor that might have sliped through the grasp of the writers.

Logic may rule Sherlock, but satire reigns supreme, especially in regard to the modern day.

Long live Sherlock Holmes.  May you never be bored.

Harry Potter Book 1 Poetic Narrative

The equal of darkness has been marked
As the Boy of the Living spark
An orphan from the age of one
Two fighters’ one and only son
A bearded wise man and a giant heart
And a catty teacher give a new start
A prophecy that told before
How he would even up the score
At eleven his magic grows
His guardians’ hatred clearly shows
Brought back to a world unknown
Magic is real, he’s truthfully shown
A new friend and foe on the first day
A burning in his head that won’t go away
Famous almost from his birth
A savior for the unknowing Earth
A nervous man, two-faced in truth
A harbor for the most uncouth
A beast with breath grossly hot
Keys on wings determined to not be caught
An ensnaring devil plant to bring death
Strategic soldiers with swords in sheath
A brutal sacrifice so he can pass
He faces with his true foe at last
A precious gem given to those who seek
Not to use, but only to keep
Destroying the harbor, the foe has run
Now he tries the hero to stun
To awake with answers he must know
The wise man gives on little to go
Leaving his home to return to Hell
His life now in a better spell

Hubpages: Why don’t you Like Me?

I recently signed up to Hubpages, and I seem to have nothing but problems.

Half of the buttons won’t do anything, or refresh when I click on them.

I don’t think it’s the browser I’m using, because I use Chrome, and it’s the most update version.  So I don’t know what it is that’s wrong.  I can’t post, answer questions, or update my profile.  It’s starting to frustrate me.

I need some help, and I’m not sure where to turn.
