I am not a poet

8/21/2018
More
This is not a poem. Because I am not a poet. Who writes poetry. Sonnets. Limericks. Or Haiku. Rhyme. Or not. I write none of that. I do not write poetry. Nor do I want to write poetry. So, I don’t. I write instructions, documentation. Scripts for video tutorials. I write them, I edit them, … Continue reading "I am not a poet"

The Haters

8/20/2018
More
After the legalization of same-sex marriages A caterer refused to cater a same-sex wedding. Priests refused to host them in their churches. Bakers turned down orders for same-sex wedding cakes. They were all branded haters, bigots, and protesters demanded that they had no right to refuse anyone’s business. They were flooded with hatemail, death threats, … Continue reading "The Haters"

Ravens

8/18/2018
More
Ravens live a long time. Forty or fifty years, I’ve been told. They also make strong family bonds. So when they are old and dying, all of their family gathers around. A final tribute? To say goodbye. The old raven falls from the branch to the ground, thrashes his wings, and lies still. The others … Continue reading "Ravens"

Expense

8/17/2018
More
Be careful when you get a laugh at Mindy Felton’s expense. She’ll make you fill out an expense report. Those are a pain to fill out, because you have to itemize and justify every laugh. Don’t forget the receipts, either. No per diems allowed. Copy and attach them to your form. Then you have to … Continue reading "Expense"

The Priest’s Kit

8/16/2018
More
If God has angels and saints, what does The Devil have? “Fallen angels,” says the priest, as he goes through his checklist. Bible. Crucifix. Holy water. The basics. A wad of cash for bail, spare phone battery and charger cord. A pack of gum comes in handy. Garlic, a gun loaded with silver bullets… those … Continue reading "The Priest’s Kit"

Four Years Old

8/15/2018
More
I was only four years old when Nixon resigned. And the Vietnam War raged on half a world away. For me, it was the summer after kindergarten. I never knew anything going on. Life was Sesame Street and summer camp. A tire swing in the willow tree. Catching fireflies in the evening so they’d flash … Continue reading "Four Years Old"

Army Navy

8/14/2018
More
I don’t understand the Army-Navy game. They say it’s a rivalry, but shouldn’t they be learning to work together? You know, because they should be working together to defend our country and kill our enemies. And why are they playing football? Or basketball? Or any other sport? Why aren’t they learning to shoot guns, fire … Continue reading "Army Navy"

The Diet

8/13/2018
More
I was morbidly obese, so I needed to lose weight. All you need to do is reduce calorie intake and exercise more. That worked for me. All of the fad diets are a marketing scam. Atkins diet, Paleo diet, South Beach diet. Someone comes up with a magical formula, and they get rich off of … Continue reading "The Diet"

White Aligns

8/11/2018
More
Recently, I was fitted for invisaligns. These are clear plastic trays that act like braces, but don’t use all that metal and rubber band crap. People can barely notice that you have them snapped in. The problem is, my teeth are yellow and stained. So people can see my yellowed and stained teeth. My dentist … Continue reading "White Aligns"

Measured in spoons

8/10/2018
More
TS Eliot wrote famously that he measured his life out in coffee spoons. I’m sure this led to him being late to a lot of important meetings, crucial appointments, and dinner dates. How do you measure time in coffee spoons? Maybe he stuck the spoon in the ground and used it like a sundial. Or … Continue reading "Measured in spoons"

The powers of prayer

8/9/2018
More
I’ve found from experience that praying to solve a problem doesn’t solve anything. In fact, it makes things worse. Not just because praying wastes time that you could otherwise use to come up with a solution. When was the last time you solved a math problem with prayer? Pick up a fucking calculator, you dipshit. … Continue reading "The powers of prayer"

Jesus and the shotgun

8/8/2018
More
It’s amazing how quickly a preacher will turn from preaching love and brotherhood to revenge and bloodshed when you touch his daughter. Is she an adult? Damn straight, she’s an adult. The things she can do with her tongue… The hellfire and brimstone hypocrite reaches past his bible for the shotgun. Now’s not the time … Continue reading "Jesus and the shotgun"

Mailman

8/7/2018
More
Even though you may think that it’s sexist to use the term “mailman” instead of the gender-neutral terms “mailperson” or “letter carrier” the truth is that no matter what gender ratios the Postal Service uses for hiring quotas, much like the clownfish and other unusual coral reef-dwelling species, the staff that runs delivery routes for … Continue reading "Mailman"

Leave no man behind

8/6/2018
More
“Leave no man behind” isn’t the official policy of our armed forces, but they do their best to bring every soldier, pilot, and crewman home that they can. The obvious exception is when they get vaporized by nuclear weapons, as what happened when the North Koreans tried to reunify with the South. Or when the … Continue reading "Leave no man behind"
