we the sheeple?

Why are there so many sheeple?

What has become of “we the people?”

common sense has, long ago, gone out to lunch

that is, most probably, why we’re in this crunch

but don’t despair, I have a hunch

your vote can be a knockout punch!

Extract yourself from the sheeple!

And stand up for “we the people!”

VOTE…a story poem

Truth from Gigi

Rethinking Life

VOTE

jailed
beaten
their hair pulled
force fed
their medication withheld
handcuffed to the bars
of their damp moldy cells
women fought
for the right to vote
the only way to properly
THANK THEM
is to
do it

VOTE

Vote- an acrostic poem

Voting is a privilege, your right and your

Opportunity to have your voice heard

The time to stand up for your beliefs and your rights

Elect the President YOU want to represent you

“We the People” a reblog from 2013…maybe even more applicable now

Rooster-Wake-Up

To force change on things that matter

we need more than idle chatter

to halt our dissatisfaction

It is time NOW to take action

we’ve become complacent sheeple

lets stand up for  “We the People”

thin the flock by a small fraction

It is time NOW to take action

whilst government is out to lunch

we can and should take the first punch

Revolution/ chain reaction

It is time NOW to take action

no more burying heads in sand

rise up, revolt, just take a stand

together we can gain traction

It is time NOW to take action

To force change on things that matter

It is time NOW to take action

~Melanie Thomason

A sunny day…a poem about death from Rethinking Life

Had to share this fabulous poem from Gigi, see original post here.

Police, Cop, Police Uniforms

and when death comes
in might be
on a sunny afternoon
when everything seems fine
until suddenly you
can’t breath
because your
hands are zipped
behind your back
and there’s a knee
pressing against your
throat
and
then
on that bright
sunny day
with people
shouting
he can’t breath
it’s all
over
and
you’re
someplace
else
someplace
you didn’t expect
to visit so soon
and the country
you are no longer
a part of
bursts into
RAGE
and
FLAMES
and
people
begin to
WAKE UP
and
FINALLY
start to
FIGHT
BACK
