Literature
Order
The discipline fell by the wayside,
My space became chaotic on the inside,
Despite the order I wish to imbibe,
And against the goals I did inscribe.
 
An afternoon was all it took,
To find the order I sook,
To knock down the webs and dust every book,
A task I should have not forsook.
 
My mind is clear now that it's done,
The order made is vision won,
There is no need for the task to shun,
I'll keep this up now that I've begun.

A Couplet for Ben Shapiro
They sling anti-Semite at you,
But do they know you're a Jew?

Literature
Narratives

Through greed and foolish choice,
He was on an unfit boat,
But the truth about him isn't given voice,
And his corpse is used to change the vote.
 
Through hatred and evil acts,
She prayed in her church,
She wasn't saved from the attacks,
But to know about her you'd have to search.

Literature
Cats and Dogs

If you want more cat people in the pet club,
It's important that we understand what they want,
For instance cats don't like to go out to walk,
And a game of fetch would make them balk,
While dogs and their owners won't feel any daunt,
The very invitation to cat people feels a snub.
 
How dare you discriminate against cats,
Cats are not genetically inferior to dogs,
You filthy bigot you're out of the club,
And your suggestions we'll be quick to scrub,
Your name is stricken from our logs,
Blame the anti-cat hood among your hats!

Literature
Clean Your Room

Every thought is muddled,
My house is a mess,
Writing is muddled,
I don't know what to address.
 
Get up and put your things away,
Let a thought begin to take form,
Dust your possessions and put them in array,
Like a ship emerging from a storm.
 
Bring order out of chaos in my life,
Start by what's behind my front door,
Let clear thought combat my strife,
Finish by sweeping the floor.
 
In my own little pocket of ordered space,
I can sit down and really think,
My problems and prospects to truly face,
To climb their heights or to their depths sink.

Literature
Censorship Three

Towers of glass and steel,
Cloisters of wealth and splendor,
Walled off from what's real,
React to contradictions with fervor.
 
They rule not by vote or sword,
Nor in truth do they at all,
Yet still freedom they cannot afford,
Or their own false perceptions may fall.
 
Profit for them is not enough,
The must also reshape the world,
Control of our story despite any rebuff,
They wish us to carry only their banner unfurled.
 
In a way their plight makes sense,
They thought the world over would only agree,
But once online the divergence was immense,
So now they wish the web to bend the knee.
 
They'll hide away those who dare disagree,
While claiming to love freedom of speech,
Hoping to shape perception and thus reality,
Relying on political allies to defend them in screech.
 
Private company suddenly has a meaning,
Because when their tribe does it it's not wrong,
Ignorantly blithering free market while its explaine

Literature
Censorship Two

With professorial ordain,
You think yourself judge on high,
And you think you can force others to refrain,
From letting certain opinions past their teeth fly,
You thought naught could surmount your disdain,
But those pesky dissidents refused to lie,
If judgement won't stop their speech,
There are other tools in your reach.
 
All must work for their bread,
So you try to make them impossible to employ,
You write their bosses with cruel fantasy in your head,
Taking glee in your attempts to destroy,
Hoping to fill all others with dread,
In all who would dare your fellows annoy,
If you can't starve them with lies,
There are other ways to deal with those you despise.
 
Despite the names called and lies told,
Those dirty plebs refuse to be cowed,
They've even left the Internet for Reality just to be bold,
So you've got to shout over them with screeching loud,
And if they dare laugh at your scold,
Cover you face with black shroud,
Beat

Literature
Happy Birthday
Those who read do encourage me,
Those who click favorite do a little more,
Those who comment make me squee,
And they're the ones I'll quickly adore,
To express that Happy Birthday cannot begin,
But let me add this to celebration din.
:iconrefield:refield
:iconrefield:refield 5 12
Literature
Censorship One

You said a true thing,
But it offends the aristocracy,
You have arguments to bring,
And there's no shortage of hypocrisy,
They silence you,
Or you don't speak what's true.
 
You spoke the truth,
But it offends academe,
You tell it with ruth,
But insults they'll scream,
They silence you,
Or you don't speak what's true.
 
You let the truth out,
But it offends the technocrats,
You calmly tell what you're about,
But they attack like rabid rats,
They silence you,
Or you don't say what's true.
 
The truth may not always be pleasant to hear,
But it's the only way for peace to draw near,
Don't let those on high control your mouth and ear,
They call you names out of fear,
Because their power rests in your cowering at their jeer,
Which is why they hate the sound of good cheer,
So let's strike out against them in the wild web frontier!

Literature
Representation

You must tell my story,
What I am demands the screen,
But don't dare paint something derogatory,
What I am must be seen,
Skin like mine shown in glory,
My sexuality more prominent than it's ever been,
The country I left's greatness is obligatory,
My religion displayed in reverent scene,
I am not satisfied with telling my own story.
 
I cannot tell the story I have not been told,
My pen paints personality,
And I will suffer your scold,
My characters are mine in finality,
I'm concerned with whether they're timid or bold,
I care if you believe the villain's brutality,
I want you to wonder why the hero is cold,
I want you to feel for an unnoticed war casualty,
Only the author chooses what story is told.
 
But the world needs to know what I have to say,
You've no right to keep it from light of day!
 
Then let forth your voice into the light,
Tell the truth with all your might!

Literature
Moments
Hands gain callous,
Strength from muscles,
Work is done.
 
A new cloud drifts by a familiar hill,
A small lizard scurries over your boot,
Stop a moment and breathe your fill,
Let your center take its root.

Literature
Myself

Gone by has another day,
The sun sets and I've naught to say,
The moon rises and coyotes bay,
Silently in bed do I lay,
While troubles on my heart weigh,
But the words for them I can't array,
My beloved craft to me says nay,
For inspiration's whisper do I pray,
But she tells me things and I dismay,
At the world's folly play,
Why speak if there is no listener to see?
 
What can I say the any would want to hear from me,
Am I even close to who I ought to be,
Should I stand tall or bend the knee,
Who can tell me how to live free,
What do my poems chase and whence do they flee,
For what should I strive and for what should I plea,
Should I be troubled if we disagree,
Am I a worker ant or a mere flea,
Am I a good sturdy ship upon the sea,
What fruit is born by this tree,
Shall I be cut down and be cast in the fire?
 
My place in the world is dire,
I constantly draw my own ire,
Looking inward is a trudge in mire,
I put myself on the wire,
And when

Literature
Neutrality
Adam Smith laid out how wealth is made,
Bastiat proved the basis for law,
Hyac uncovered the road to serfdom with ink spade,
Socrates died so truth by questions we could draw,
Mises discovered what how choices are weighed,
Marcus Aralias taught how to bear the last straw,
Yet you lecture me on something you did not read.
 
The oldest laws that have stood the test of time,
Do not take what does not belong to you,
Violating an exclusive claim is the basis of crime,
Across all situations this is true,
Advancement is really just application to those who upwards climb,
And to things excepted without their due,
Yet you lecture me on something you did not read.
 
The profit motive is to ensure gain,
Win-win can be found in lands of liberty,
The one with the power to say no shall truly reign,
Only with force can anybody violate morality,
To accuse those who've done naught of evil shall only bring pain,
Robbing by aid of government is evil's victory,
And you lecture me on something yo

Literature
Work
The sun beats down,
The fan just drones on,
I refuse to frown,
Today is for brawn,
Let sweat wet my crown.
 
There's work to be done,
So ignore that pain,
I'm the only one,
To strive for the gain,
Day's gone 'ere begun.
 
Smiling with a sigh,
Wipe salt from my brow,
Good work in my eye,
So off to bed now,
Wake again to try.

:iconrefield:refield 7 13
Literature
Present
Chat every day,
With words play,
Laughter our prey,
Serious without delay,
Careful to say,
Glad you're okay.
 
I promise to,
Speak ever true,
Without much ado,
Mistakes owned too,
Myself to imbue,
Friendship must ensue.
 
Stumbling in dark,
Despair a shark,
Light's too stark,
Wounds your mark,
Pain your hark,
Where's your arc?
 
Friends can try,
It's no lie,
You may cry,
They might pry,
Just to ally,
Love is why.
 
You might fear,
Letting us near,
Seeing it clear,
We're the mere,
Listeners in here,
Offering our cheer.
 
We may fail,
Or may prevail,
Friends may avail,
In tragic tale,
Of heart frail,
In hope inhale.

Order
Reestablishing a routine after a major change can be a challenge, but it's not something that I cannot do.  Bear with me as I get back into the swing of things, the quality shall improve forthwith.

They sling anti-Semite at you,

But do they know you're a Jew?

A Couplet for Ben Shapiro
I saw some signs over at Berkley accusing Ben Shapiro of being a Nazi and an anti-Semite.  He's a Jew.  He wears the little hat and everything.  I don't know what else needs to be said about this situation.  Just the obvious stupidity of it is starting to bore me when it used to anger or amuse me.
